Any day is a good day to learn how to draw a dragonfly, but spring time when everything is blooming just seems extra nice. This drawing was actually made years ago by a young kinder named Yuna, and it’s one of those special ones that I could look at all day. The little bow, the hearts and stripes, the puffy clouds and happy flowers just ooze a kind of playfulness that is perfect in every way. I hope the simplicity of this one helps bring out the creativity in your students too!

  • Drawing Paper. This is the good stuff you can buy in bulk for a good price.
  • Pencils. I like how this brand always makes nice dark lines.
  • Black Marker. A permanent marker will give you a dark black color.
  • Crayons. The larger packs are nice for more color choices.
