Learn to draw!

I never thought about how freeing it would be for my kids to have some guidelines on how ed emberlyto draw stuff. This Christmas my sister (Hi Jenny!) got my sons Ed Emberley’s Make a World¬†which teaches them how to draw loads of stuff. They love this book!

I thought at first that having a drawing book would stifle their creativity, but it was the opposite. Now they could finally draw all the things in their minds! They started making up stories and illustrating them, and they have not stopped.

Today Harry was working on his new book, C is for Clover, which is an ABC book about St. Patrick’s Day. When he got to P he needed some help drawing St. Patrick and that is how I stumbled upon this website:¬†http://www.activityvillage.co.uk/learn-to-draw-saint-patrick. Both boys had so much fun drawing St. Patrick that I kept digging and found a few more March themed drawing pages. Check them out here:

These are just links to the drawing instructions but this whole website is really fantastic. Check it out and let me know what you think!
