Draw a striped blanket with pastels

from 1 year 6 months to 3 years

In simple terms, all pastels are made of ground pigments mixed with a binder then pressed and dried to hold their form. The type and amount of binder defines whether the pastel is hard, soft, or oil based. The actual word “pastel” comes from the Italian word pastello, and means paste.

Start with training to draw lines - thin and thick. Soft pastels transfer to paper with such rich color, your kid will love using them. Don’t worry if they break or crumble, just keep all the pieces and let your little one have fun. After a while you get used to using small pastel chunks.
