How to draw a cucumber with a leaf

You can draw a cucumber together with your child. To interest your child you can tell him or her the following information:

  • It’s strange, but the cucumber, to which we are so accustomed, came from India. At the foot of the Himalayas, this vegetable is still growing.
  • Monuments and sculptures of this vegetable are in many cities.
  • African cucumber looks like a banana.
  • The ” mad ” cucumber during its ripening throws its seeds.
You need:
1

Upper part
