with your child.

It will be interesting not only for your kid but for you as well.
And here is the list of things to draw
, ideas how to draw
, unusual and funny drawing techniques:
Things to draw with crayons or chalks
People love diversity. Ordinary chalk, sanguine, charcoal provide us with these capabilities.
Smooth asphalt, porcelain, ceramic tiles, stones - that's the foundation upon which rests a good piece of chalk and charcoal.
You can start drawing whole stories on asphalt. And if it does not rain, then you can develop them on the following day.
And on ceramic tiles (which are sometimes kept in stock somewhere in the pantry), we recommend to draw some small things with chalk or charcoal.
Large stones (such as boulders) are ussually decorated to become heads of animals or tree stumps. It depends on the form of the rock.
Things to draw with your finger
Here's another way to portray the world: with fingers, palm, fist, feet, legs, and maybe with chin or nose.
Not everyone will accept this statement seriously. Where is the line between prank and drawing?
Why should we only draw with a brush or felt-tip pen?
Arms or fingers can become a great instrument. Moreover, the index finger of child's right hand, listens to a child mauch better than a pencil.
Well, what if the pencil is broken, brush dried herself, ran out of pens - and you stil have things to draw.
There is another reason: sometimes the subject just ask for a children's palm or finger. For example, a drawing of the tree a child will perform better with his hands than with anything else.
He will draw the trunk and branches with his finger, and then he will draw the rest of the picture with his palm. It is good to mix several colors.
For example, choose yellow color at first, then add brown or orange, it turns out fluffy!
Well, if we teach children how to use their fingers rationally - not only single index finger but all of them.
Things to draw with foam rubber
Somehow, we all tend to think that if we paint, we for sure use brush. Not always. Foam rubber can be also used for painting.
We recommend to make a variety of different geometric figures, and then attach them to a thin wire stick or a pencil (not sharpened). This will be our instrument of work.
It turns out a large brush without hairs. Stick is held perpendicular to the surface of the paper sheet.
Now it can be dipped into paint and then draw red triangles, yellow circles, green squares (foam rubber is washed well).
Initially, children will randomly draw geometric shapes. And then ask them to make the simplest of designs - from one type of figures, then two, three.
Trace left by such a "brush" can mimic animal dander, trees, snow.
Stick with foam rubber is dipped into paint (most importantly, that there is not much water), and the baby begins to cover the paper with differrent shapes.
Let the child realize that he can use the "magic bullet" to draw the tracks quickly and easily .
Then draw a black felt-tip branches of a tree or bush, let the child draw up foliage with green, yellow, red or orange paint.
Draw a simple form of a fox or a rabbit - let the kid trample down the paper with his "magic tool" - animals will become fluffy, their fur will look so disheveled, that the kid will want to touch it for sure.
It is extremely interesting to work with this technique with a stencil. Cut out the middle of a dense sheet of cardboard of any image, such as tiger or a bear's head.
Attach the cardboard to cut out a stencil sheet to landscape and ask the kid to "stomp" that part of the album sheet, which is visible through the hole in the template.
After the child will do it, let the paper get dry, then draw eyes, mouth, whiskers, stripes with a brush.
Things to draw with cards
Almost every house holds an array of old postcards.
Loop with children old postcards, and teach how to cut the necessary parts and paste images to the location in the plot.
Bright images from postcards will give quite unpretentious decoration even to the most simple patterns.
It will be difficult to draw a dog or a beetle for three-, four-or five-year oldchild. But you can take a ready image of a dog and let your child draw out a sun, rain or draw other things.
You'll see that your child will be very happy.
Things to draw with salt
And what if try to paint with glue, and then sprinkle with salt these areas?
Then the amazing snow pictures are obtained. They will look more impressive if they are made on light-blue, blue or pink paper.
Try it, it's very exciting!
Things to draw with toothpaste
There is also another way to create winter scenes - by painting with toothpaste.
Before starting the drawing you must explain the baby that this is a creative search, and such use of toothpaste does not entitle him to squeeze it on the floor, shelves and tables.
Together with the baby outline with a pencil the future forms of trees, buildings, snow banks.
Slowly squeeze out the toothpaste, following all the guide lines. Such work should be definitely dried and it is better not to put it in the folder along with other drawings.
Things to draw with foam
Take the paint, shampoo, water, a glass and a cocktail tube. And make lot's of colored bubbles in the glass.
And then togather with children attach the paper to the multi-colored foam, and there you'll see imprinted flowers, fireworks, ice cream and other things.
A very interesting way to draw in pencil, felt pen or ballpoint pen on a pre-made stencil. Stencils can be of two kinds - some are cut inside of a sheet,
others are made from sheet and separated from it. It's easier for little children to trace the figures carved into a sheet. Many of the squares, and rulers have such patterns.
Attach them to a paper sheet and ask the kid to draw around the shape. Then put away the stencil and come up with the child, how to draw up one form or another.
The children of 4.5-5 years old will manage to circle single stencils, cut from cardboard. It is more difficult, because the hand poorly keeps on the outside of the template and the kid draws extra lines.
But children can be interested in the content of the templates: for boys - templates of cars and aircrafts, for girls - animals, dolls, bows and cabins.
After circling the templates, children can paint their images with markers and paints, shade with different lines: straight, wavy, zig-zag, with loops, wave-like with sharp peaks.
Stencils can help you create your own pictures, they will complete the drawings made by your child.
You can start a game: the child circles various objects, and you are trying to guess what it is. First, not all items can be circled. When finding them,
the kid will understand the difference between bulk and flat objects or things that have at least one flat side, and those that do not have any.
Second, it's not easy to circle a particular object without the help of an adult. And thirdly, the roles may change in this game: a baby puts parents in a blind alley,
and adults try to find the answer. All of this pleases the child, providing him burst of creative power.
Mysterious drawings can be obtained as follows. Take the cardboard about the size of 20x20 cm and is composed in two. Then take a semi-woolen or woolen thread
(it's length should be about 30 cm), its end (8 - 10 cm) is dipped into paint and clamped inside the carton. Then move the thread inside of tha cardboard, and then remove it and reveal the cardboard.
It turns a chaotic image. Children and adults view, discuss and draw out the image. It's extremely useful to give names to your drawings. This complex mental and verbal work in conjunction
with the drawing lessons will help the intellectual development of preschool children.
Things to draw on stones
Of course, most often a child draws on the plane surfaces, on paper, at least on the asphalt, tile, large stones. Planar images of houses, trees, cars, animals on paper can't entail as much,
as the creation of the bulk creations. In this connection, ideally use marine stones. They are smooth, small and have different shapes. The very form of a pebble at times will tell the child
what thing to draw on it (and sometimes adults can help kids). It' better to draw a frog from one stone, a beetle for another and so on. Thick bright paint is put on the stone - and the image
is readyAnd after the stone is dry, cover it with transparent lacquer. In this case, you will get a shiny, brightly shimmering beetle or a frog, made by children's hands. This toy many times
will be engaged in independent children's games and will bring many benefits to its owner.
Things to draw with relief
Add some flour to the dye and then apply it to the sheet. Cut teeth out of a cardboard and draws strip patterns inside and out. Cut out some shape of the dried sheet, for example a vase.
Draw a flower on the white sheet, then apply glue.
Things to draw with glue
Squeeze some glue on the image drawn on a paper sheet, wait until it becomes dry and then paint it. You'll get the relief as a result.
