✏️ TOOLS FOR SUCCESS

  • How-To-Draw Template – International (A4) or U.S. Size (8.5×11 in)
  • Sketching Pencil
  • Polymer Eraser
  • Outline Marker
  • Coloring Tools

🎨 Parents: The only tools you need for these how-to-draw tutorials are: eraser, 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.

  • Sugar candy is melted at a high temperature until it becomes a liquid. This liquid sugar is then spun in a machine using a central spinning force.
