Why encourage children’s interest in how to draw a dinosaur? A blog post titled “A Psychological Explanation for Kids’ Love of Dinosaurs” shares that the subject is actually very beneficial for children’s cognitive development.

A 2008 study found that sustained interest in a conceptual domain like dinosaurs, can help children increase their knowledge, create a better attention span, and form deeper thought processing skills. In short, they make better learners and smarter kids. What could be better than that?

Learning how to draw a dinosaur will always part of their fascination, as children can then draw all their fierce features exactly the way they want. This tutorial is made for those that would like to draw one with all the sharp teeth and powerful claws, but keep a twinkle in a rather friendly eye too.

Materials for a Dinosaur drawing

  • Drawing Paper. This is the good stuff you can buy in bulk for a good price.

  • Black Marker. A permanent marker will give you a dark black color.
