Being able to draw a perfect circle using only your hand, a writing instrument, and something to draw on is pretty awesome. But if for some reason you can't get this method down, don't despair! Here are a few more tricks. If you've got something round, put it down on your paper and trace... easy circle in no time. If you don't have something circular or it isn't the right size, try using a compass. These are adjustable, so you can draw circles of all sizes. If no compass can be found, check the house for a protractor. Put the protractor down and trace around the edge. Then, flip the protractor over, line up the edges and trace the other side.
