Kids love doing things on the computer and watching videos. Better yet if you read Jan Brett’s awesome books. The artwork will take on more meaning through the stories.

Materials needed:

  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Eraser

(some of the drawing use colored pencils and even paint)

Here’s a guide on how to use these videos:


1) Have your kids sit in front of the computer and watch the videos. I did this with my boys and they absolutely loved them.

2) Have them watch once just to understand where the teacher is going with the drawing.

3) After they have watched the video then you can play it the second time. This time, teach them to pause after a certain amount of watching and then practice the drawing. Give them the assurance that they can always rewind the video so that they are feeling calm while drawing.

    Oh Eren!
    This is a hit – my kids love drawing animals and are always asking me how….now I have a perfect place they can learn how.

    Thanks girl.

    I used to love reading drawing books when I was a kid…I wasn’t very good at, but it was fun to try and see if I could make them. It’s funny now that kids have videos, but not surprising either 🙂

    Eren, I love what you have shared here about Jan Brett and drawing. This reminds me of wonderful memories with my son, when we would pick out books at the library. I remember being amazed that he would ask for authors! Jan Brett and Jack Prelutsky were favorites of his and in turn, became my favorites too. It is just wonderful that Jan Brett is so lively and shows art as accessible. It’s encouraging also that you are passing this great resource on to families to enjoy and share. Thank you, Eren!

    Oh Mary!
    I’m so glad you came by. I’m very excited that as a mommy we can share with our children awesome resources on the internet.
    I hope to make more and more pages with fun resources for kids like penguin thematic units, and Bible abc poems & coloring pages.
    Blessings my friend,
    Eren Mckay
