Drawing with children of 1-2 years old should be very simple and fast, but it should have a visible result and creative freedom for the child. Try not to lead the process, give your child the opportunity to express himself. Today we’ll show you several ways how to paint with colors, so you can decorate a room or draw a card.

You will need:
Cartridge paper
Gouache
Brushes
Jar of water
Candle
Scissors

Fold a sheet of paper in the middle, open it and lay in front of the kid. Let him draw for fun, it can be just a point or blob, it is better to use a thick brush. It would be better if the child will not mix the paints or use more than 3 colors.
