They use basic shapes and simple steps that even younger kids can use. Each drawing tutorial includes 6 easy steps to draw the picture. It breaks them down into simple straight lines and curved lines that are easy to manage for the beginner. 

I’ll show you en example with the simple fireworks picture.  The first fireworks step starts with a small star in the center.  The next step adds a few flares to the fireworks drawing. The next steps continue in the same way until the firework drawing is complete.

You can embellish it more. Add more stars to the ends of the flares. Change up the color of the fireworks, or the shape of the fireworks. You can even glue on some glitter at the end if you’d like to make it sparkle or give it a light effect.  Try this on the printed sheet provided first, then make your own drawing of fireworks on some colored construction paper.

The fun of the these draw and write pages is that it teaches kids the skill and the steps, then they can continue drawing these images not their own with the knowledge they gained from practicing. They can doodle and practice with different shapes and styles or variations on these drawings. 

Educational Benefit of the Draw and Write Pages:

This printable is both a language arts and a visual arts activity!  Kids can learn and benefit in so many ways from it. And guess what? They won’t even realize it is learning!  They are really fun to use, too. 

Did you know that drawing has some amazing educational benefits?  Drawing can stimulate neural connections and promote cognitive function.  It can enhance focus, memory, and problem-solving skills. Drawing sparks creativity, sharpens the sense of sight, and builds self esteem when they build their artistic skills. Kids can use drawing to communicate feelings and moods, to express dreams and ideas. It is also a great fine motor exercise for their hands. Drawing can even reduce stress!

This printable also includes the written words at the bottom. These are useful to help kids build connections to words and pictures. It helps them learn to spell and write the words. It’s another fine motor exercise.
