Easy How to Draw a Grasshopper Tutorial and Grasshopper Coloring Page

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?

  • Drawing Paper. This is the good stuff you can buy in bulk for a good price.
  • Pencils. Don’t waste your money on the cheapest brand. These make nice dark lines.
  • Black Marker. A permanent marker will give you a nice dark black color.
  • Crayons. I like this non-toxic brand that is made from beeswax, not petroleum by-products.
  • Note: All of the above are Amazon affiliate links.
