Here we have a little more complicated version of a still life of fruit for kids, it is suitable for children from 4 to 7 years. To make it interesting for children, you can come up with the story of the picture, for example, about fairytale country, like we have described in previous posts.

Actually, everything is simple – almost all fruits are round. You need only to recall what color are apples and put them on a plate. Start with the biggest ones.

Pear is similar to apple (round), just draw another circle of smaller size on the top.

Paint it over. By the way, lemon is round also, just with ears.

Still life for kids (5)

Banana like a long curved stick. If the brush is wide enough, you can simply paint the line.

You can decorate the table – “lay a cloth”.

Put white color on the palette, wash the brush, then just choose your color and mix. Decorate the tablecloth. You can add other colors.

But our plate looks sad, something is missing. Put red and blue on the palette and mix. Draw plums in the free space between fruits.

You can decorate it with cherries, strawberries and so on. Draw with marker a bird cherry tree or you can outline some of the fruit.
