Challenge #3

Can you draw a pig playing with a toy?

Did you know: Along with insects and animals, a good many of the foods we eat either come from or originated in the rainforests. In fact, around 80 percent of the food we eat came from tropical rainforests in some way. This includes fruits and vegetables, as well as coffee and spices. While the rainforest has a large selection of plants and food sources, we only use a fraction of these products. Consider these most popular food resources. FOR PARENTS   While your kids draw, view some people on Instagram having fun and eating at #rainforestcafe! Help their customers learn about the rainforest, as they dine, by posting your drawing challenge art on Instagram using the same hashtag :-)!
