One of Jaylene’s favorite things to draw these days are folded surprise drawings. Here’s a cupcake. (Jayden was helping me take pictures)

Yup, it’s a hippo!

These drawings, although they require a wee bit of planning, are a lot of fun to create and share. Fold the paper (You could simply fold one side up, like the frog; or if you’re using scrap paper, mountain fold the paper like we did with the cupcake). Then draw your first picture, keeping it very simple and basic details. Unfold it and finish the drawing of the second subject, taking care not to add too many details to the previously drawn part.

We’d love to see what you guys come up with!
