Drawing is one of the nicest ways to have fun with your kids.  Thankfully so, there are many things to love about it.

As a creative and engaging activity that can keep your kids busy for long as they want, it is also one way to keep boredom away.

Although not every child is born with an excellent drawing or sketching ability, participating does not require being a professional.

Just like other crafts, the more your kids do it, the better they will get. Enjoy the list of ideas to draw (and how to draw) with kids of all ages below.
