Below you’ll find an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to draw a Grasshopper and a Grasshopper Coloring Page. Save it for when you want to draw one that looks real, but is still kinda cute.
Most of the “how to draw a grasshopper” tutorials that I have seen have either been meant for kids just learning how to draw (the circle head is a dead giveaway) or best for high schoolers learning how to shade. That’s quite a gap, to say the least.
What’s an older elementary student to do? Well, here’s a new easy tutorial that has all the necessary science-y body parts (head, thorax, wing, abdomen) with a touch of cuteness too. A little twinkle in the eye adds some storybook charm to what otherwise might be just more of a grasshopper diagram. Why not have a little of each?

Grasshopper Tracing Page
- 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.
