First, I wanna say that this site really gives me the impulse to continue drawing because in the past I never showed my work to anyone. My elder sister is the most talented person in drawing. She always gets first prize in professional art competitions (in many countries too). People love her art so it’s normal that no one really notices my skill even though it’s not that great but I still love what I do. When I almost gave up, I found this website! :D Thank you to the staff of KidzEra, you guys are the best!!!! It’s been three years and I’m now 17. I need to focus on studying since this year I might enter the college in BBA (just maybe) but I will keep updating my art. <3

How to Draw


Happy Cupcake Friends

Submitted by: Marilyn A., Age 12, Our Lady of Grace School, North Bergen, New Jersey

Draw half a circle with puffs. Then a square at the bottom.


Draw sprinkles, cherries and puffly flowers. Be creative!


Draw a face! Draw two ovals then two little circles inside. Then draw a smiley mouth.


Finally, add arms to your cupcake and color it like a rainbow. Draw more! Upload your cupcakes to and show them off to all your friends!

Beauty is everywhere in the wild. It is where treetops glimmer with snow, where the wind whistles and where trees bow down to the ground. Beauty is a vast stretching desert of golden grains of sand under a sun setting below the horizon. Beauty is the natural world. Imagine somewhere peaceful without pollution. A waterfall with water rushing over the clean rocks, glistening in the sunlight, sending fresh spray into the air. At the bottom, water bubbles continuously with excitement. The bubbles fizz and pop, leaving a scent of pure, fresh water. The water flows into a river in which fish swim, their multicolored scales flashing in the sunlight. Their tails brush water around the clear river, shining in beams of light. Birds chirp in the trees along the riverbank, sounding like a tinkling melody fluttering throughout Flower fairy submitted by: the trees. Kirameki

Over the damp hills a rainbow hangs overhead. Clouds drift, circling around the curved ribbon in the sky. Vivid colors flash on the deep purple mountains. Powdery snow caps the peaks of these majestic landforms like frosting on a cupcake. Rays of sunlight fill the scene with a warm glow.





Occasionally they swoop down to land on the moist grassy fields. The trees are filled with ripe, red apples hanging from the branches, casting fragile shadows over the swaying strands of grass. A lively breeze dances over the clearing. Behind the rows of apple trees, gently rolling hills dotted with colorful flowers flow tenderly in front of rocky, snow-covered mountains.

Submit your stories!


As day turns into night, the rivers drift downstream into the sea. Water mixes with the shore of a sandy beach. Shells poke out of the cool sand everywhere. A full moon looks down on the calm night. Shafts of silvery moonlight allow the shells to be seen clearly, poking up out of the sand. Each is unique in it’s own special way. Some shells instantly draw the sound of waves colliding against each other into one’s ear. Others are so pointy that it hurts to pick them up. Scattered shells lead underwater. Little traces of silver filter through the chemical-free water. Water ripples and splatters against underwater plants. Tangled strands of seaweed make a bed for a lonely crab. Fish are hiding from predators in the healthy coral reef. Deeper in the water there live other amazing creatures. Light is barely able to peek beneath the layers of the sea that lay like a blue-green blanket on the Earth. Jellyfish look like umbrellas with beads of water hanging from their sides. Squid and octopi roam this layer of the ocean as well. Deepest in the sea live gruesome creatures in the frigid black water. It is as dark as midnight at the bottom of the ocean where some fish have lights dangling from their heads. They are like miniature flashlights underwater. Life in the ocean seems tranquil and serene without oil spills or leaking chemicals. Beauty is nature unharmed and beauty is the magic of life in nature. Help the earth by preserving the wild. Recycle to save scarce resources. Even one person can make a difference.

How much time will you spend in nature this summer?

I have read the Hunger Games book for the first time and I know why people love the series so much now...because it is SO AWESOME! This book is recommended to everybody who loves a story with mixed emotions. :) I’m busy with my studies. I know I haven’t been submitting things lately here (sorry!) but I’ll be back on business after my exams. ;) I’m practicing my piano for graduation! Read the Dead Tossed Waves. It’s AWESOME! XD You guys should read it. It’s about love, zombies and death. I had mixed emotions reading it but I LOVE IT!


[EDITOR’S NOTE: This book might be a little bit scary and intense, so you might want to avoid it if you don’t like that kind of thing!]
