How to draw a wicker basket (+ coloring)

Going for mushrooms, people take the containers to put the mushrooms in them. A wicker basket was very popular. You could put a lot in it and it was very  light-weight. You can draw a basket together with your child, tell him or her about different types of baskets and you can also tell about dangerous mushrooms.

When you’ll be going to go to pick up mushrooms , your child will be able to choose a container for him or her and he or she won’t pick up fly agarics for sure.

You need:
1

Basis

Draw the basis or the basket’s hole in the center to leave enough space for the other details.

Coloring

The baskets are made of withe, so color them with different shades of brown. You can alternate the shades in a checkerboard pattern to make the basket look more beautiful and more realistic. You can add mushrooms inside, ask your child what mushrooms he or she wants to put in the basket. You can tell your child about good and bad mushrooms in such a way.
