“How to Draw a…” pictures are a fun way to practice following directions and drawing at the same time. I love the step-by-step images that direct you and your child through the picture.
Spatial Awareness, fine motor skills, and critical thinking are all being fine tuned in this type of activity. Here is a collection of resources to get you started and you will find a link at the bottom to my Pinterest board that has more drawing tutorials than you will ever need.

Thank you for this round up of resources. I love using these in my preschool class. Whether of not the kiddos use them, I have become a better artist in having 'how to draw' printouts to refer to!
