How to draw 3-D

What to do with this activity?

3-D means three dimensional - something that's solid and that you can measure in three directions - width, height and depth. Drawing is always flat or two dimensional - but it's possible to give the illusion of depth with some tricks and shading. 

Have a look at this video which shows you how to draw a 3-D hand

Here's another video showing you how to draw a capital letter "A" that appears to float above the page.

And finally, here's a video showing you how to draw a really convincing 3-D hole on the page. 


  • Why am I doing this?

    Playing is one of the most effective ways children learn. It builds your child’s concentration and thinking skills as well as building their skills in using numbers, seeing patterns and being able to group things together. Playing games with others helps their social skills and gives them a chance to practice things they have heard and seen.

  • How can I do more?

    Playing games that involve words are great for increasing your child’s vocabulary. Games that involve dices and numbers help with maths and logical reasoning.
