Toucans are a beautiful specie of bird but they are also much easier to break down into parts for little ones to draw than they might look! Of course another advantage is the fact that they have such a distinctively huge bill that they are easily recognizable even in a kinder drawing :)
My little doodlebugs and I got to learn a bit more about this gorgeous bird and they I directed them on the steps to getting his likeness on paper.
They traced their birds in sharpies and painted them in using tempera paints.
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
