How to draw a pearl in a shell (+ coloring)

Children take different stories seriously. For example, when they watch cartoons about the underwater treasures, they imagine themselves to be the explorers of the deep sea. Or begin to search for pearls, which are in the shells.

In the moments when your child really wants to go on an adventure, but for some reasons he or she can’t do this, the child starts to be capricious or starts crying. To distract your child, offer him or her to draw a pearl in a shell and explain that he or she will learn to differentiate the shells. Drawing something new will be an interesting process for young adventurers, especially for those, who are interested in the underwater world.

You need:
1

Basis
