"To create a little magic, all you need is a piece of paper, a pencil, and your imagination!"
Things just got a bit more magical around our house. Now, that's saying something, considering my 5-year-old is usually decked out in whimsical princess attire. (Tiara? Check. Sparkly wand? Check. Shimmering gown? Check.) What could possibly compare to dressing up like royalty? Learning to draw her favorite princesses with the Learn to Draw Disney Enchanted Princesses Drawing Book & Kit.
The moment she opened the kit, I knew it was just like Cinderella's glass slipper: a perfect fit. With a beautiful array of markers and twistable crayons that were just her size, along with stencils, sharpener, and a heart-shaped eraser, she had everything she needed to make a royal masterpiece. She wanted to try drawing The Little Mermaid right away, but opted to start from page one instead. Good thing we did because the book provides some excellent drawing exercises and guidance for beginners.
Learning to draw Disney Princesses starts with a few basic shapes.

My daughter loved the simplicity of this introductory page, and it built her confidence to explore the rest of the book. She told me it was so easy, "Even moms can do it!" (I'm looking forward to having her teach me a thing or two!)

Children and adults alike will love the tips and secrets shared by The Disney Storybook Artists to bring these beautiful characters to life. No magic carpet or fairy godmother required—just a little imagination and practice!
