Looking for an ADORABLE Mother's Day directed drawing that's not going to break the bank? This directed drawing project for kids is awesome for Grandparent's Day, Mother’s Day, Father's Day, and more. This one is sure to be absolutely treasured by the special people in your student's lives! It’s just so cute... and EASY to make for any age!
ALL THE INTERESTING DETAILS:
This Mother's Day directed drawing includes 2 files:
✏️a set of 39 different, zero prep paper options (details below) and
✏️a gorgeous, full color show that guides everyone step-by-step through the drawing process. You get detailed photos, clear explanations worded in ways that kids understand, tips and reassurance for artists, and loads of creative variations so all YOU have to do is flip through this show, one page at a time. Super simple to teach!
Your students will be AMAZED with what they are capable of drawing! I ADORE this project... it allows kids to impress themselves and boost their confidence as artists!
I can assure you this project is not too hard for 4-5 year olds... and it's tons of fun for all ages! I've personally used it with 4-11 year olds and they all loved it! :)
Many teachers use this project SEVERAL times per year for different occasions: start of the year, mid-year conferences, and Mother's Day are my personal favorites.
PAPER OPTIONS::: These make this project adaptable for moms, aunts, grandmas, grandpas, dads, seriously-- anyone your students are thankful for!
❤️ There are 11 papers for a single face.
One is blank (perfect for adding children's names or ???) and the others say:
I LOVE YOU
❤️ There are several options that include 2 faces... an adult and child sized (THIS is what I like to use for Mother's Day although the single face papers could be cool, too! Yay for options!).
One is blank and the others say:
I love you, Mom.
I love you, Dad.
I love you!
Happy Mother's Day!
Happy Father's Day!
Happy Grandparent's Day!
I love, you, Papa!
I love you, Mimi!
I love you, Nana!
I love you, Grandma!
I love you, Grandpa!
I'm thankful for you!
*** FYI: If you've already purchased the Self Portrait Directed Drawing, this Mother's Day directed drawing product is very similar. The difference is that THIS show is more specific about how it walks children through doing TWO faces rather than just one. I more than doubled the number of slides so it flows better for teachers and artists who are drawing TWO faces. :) It includes a few more options for noses, smiles, and eyelashes that the self portrait show doesn't have, but the general base of the two products is very similar. There are also more paper options included here. Hope that helps! :)
If you're looking for a self portrait project and thinking of having your kids draw just a single face (could be themselves or a special person, you'd probably like the Self Portrait Directed Drawing Project better.
