How to draw a ship’s wheel (+ coloring)

Little children, especially boys, like to play games and pretend that they are adventurers. They especially like to imagine that they are explorers who discover new lands.

Moms are worried about their children, of course, because children can go far away and if there is a river nearby – they will go there.

You can offer your child to learn how to draw a ship’s wheel to entertain him or her. Let your child imagine him or her to be a captain and let him or her make his or her own control’s element with the help of our instruction.

You need:
1

Basis

The basis of the wheel is a circle of a medium size. Draw it with a help of the compass. Watch your child not to injure himself or herself. If your child does not know how to use a compass, use a round object and circle it.
