🖍️ Tools For Success

🎨 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.

Fun Kid Facts About Barns

  • Barns are always painted red for economical and practical reasons. Red paint was inexpensive back in the early 1800 and 1900s. Later it was discovered that the red color absorbs sun rays better in the winter which kept the barn warmer.
  • Even though now different paint colors are no longer cheaper or more expensive than one another, red is still the chosen color for barns as tradition dictates.
  • The first barns were a spin on European longhouses that has stables and sleeping quarters.
  • English-style barns were built from the 1600s to 1800s, they were windowless until eventually it was found that farm animals enjoyed the warm sunlight and thus windows became adopted and put in after the 1800s.
