How to Draw Planets
Children can have fun imagining what outer space looks like by drawing planets with their colorful rings, and an outer space lesson is a great time to practice some simple perspective. Black card stock paper and metallic markers are great for bright colors and easy to draw on.
On the page, draw a large circle and a variety of smaller circles. Draw some inner rings as shown. Add outer rings. Erase line inside rings. Finish with lots of tiny circle stars. Trace and color.
