🖍️ Tools For Success
- Paper (Our Free How To Draw Template PDF)
- Polymer Eraser
- Outline Markers
- Coloring Tools (I recommend Crayola’s 140 Piece Coloring Case)
🎨 Parents: The only tools you need to use these how-to-draw tutorials are: an eraser, a pencil, and a piece of paper. But – if you have them around – a sketching pencil makes for fainter and softer lines that help kids build fine motor accuracy. I also recommend going over the sketch pencil with a black outline marker when you’re done for a neater finish. Lastly, erase the pencil marks before adding color.

Beaver Fast Fun Facts for Kids
- Beaver tails have multiple uses: notifying beaver pals of predators, swim better, balance their body on lands, and building dams.
- A Beaver has upper incisor teethes that vary between 20 to 25mm. Their teeth are orange due to the presence of iron in the enamel, this iron makes their teeth incredibly strong. It grows continuously throughout their life.
- Beavers live in areas that have both land and water, like marshy lands, freshwater lakes, ponds, swamps, rivers, etc.
- Did you know beavers can see underwater? Beaver eye membranes are translucent and they have a powerful sense of hearing and smell too.
- It’s very odd as most animals are not so into sharing their space but beavers love sharing their homes with the muskrats.
- They are nocturnal animals who are also extremely hard-working. The saying goes as “busy as a beaver” because they’re always seen building dams.
- Although beavers cannot breathe underwater, they’re able to hold their breath for 15 minutes!
- Beavers’ hard-working and industrious nature signals to us something interesting…they seem to be indifferent to cold.
