Based on the popular book, Giraffes Can't Dance kids learn to draw a dancing giraffe and paint a moonlit sky. This was one of my first art lessons posted on the blog (all the way back in 2008!) and the popularity of this cute project has continue to increase over the years.
Watching the drawing video really helps break down the steps for you so you can teach this guided drawing to children as young as seven. You have the option of using markers or if it feels better, pencil, then marker.
The best part of this lesson is that once the children draw their first giraffe, they are unstoppable! You'll have dancing giraffes everywhere!
