Drawing cotton buds: rules

Drawing cotton buds: rules

Small children find it very difficult to properly hold pencils in their hands and draw with brushes. It is much more convenient for them to take a light cotton swab and write pictures. Drawing with such a tool is ideal for kids who are taking the first steps in the visual arts. At first, the child will need the help of an adult.

You need to start drawing with something simple. For example, ask the child to draw geometric shapes or letters of the alphabet (if he already knows it). You can ask to draw a bunch of mountain ash, a flower, a tree or a house. If the baby doesn’t succeed, show him an example.

You can draw 2 giraffes, one by painting with specks, and others to entrust to paint the child. The process of drawing with cotton buds should be reduced to the fact that the kid is offered a sheet with a ready-made outline drawing, and he is already finalizing and painting it.

First, it is better to use paint of the 1st color, so that the child does not have the temptation to arrange multicolored sprays and random mixing of paints. It is better to learn to draw a point.

With the help of dots you can draw almost anything: fish, fruits, vegetables, animals, insects, etc. The monotony of color can be diluted with glitter, which easily fall on the wet paint, and do not peel off after drying. When the paint is dry, frame the picture or attach it to the refrigerator with a magnet. So the child will be more proud of the work done.

Cotton buds - this is a great help for crafts and drawing. Showing imagination, they can be used to create incredible souvenirs and paintings. Be sure to connect to the creation of the work of their young children to develop their memory, imagination and fine motor skills of hands.
