Learn to draw a swallow in stages together with a child (+ coloring)

Do you want to teach your child to draw swallows? We will show you how to do this quickly, correctly, nice and interesting.

While drawing you can remind your child that you’ve seen the swallows’ nests for many times near the windows and under the roof. Swallows are divided into 2 groups: rural and urban. The first group build their dwellings under the eaves of stone and wooden houses, the second one – under the roofs of village sheds and houses. They fly fast and a lot. They eat flying insects. Also, there’s a human’s superstition: if the swallow flies low above the earth, there will be a rain or a thunderstorm soon.
