Super Easy Drawing for Kids

When you find a super easy drawing project for kids, you can use it as an introduction to art with very cute yet educational results.

Looking for a good project for those learning how to draw? This one is perfect, especially if you can offer some kind of tool to for tracing nice round circles.

My favorite classroom trick was to use a roll of masking tape. They are easy to hold, have a weight to them, and the tacky sides keep them from slipping.

You can add a little color lesson to this drawing by asking students to fill the two outside birds in a primary color, and then the middle with the resulting secondary one. Making up those colors on the spot with paint, would probably be the most fun, but filling in with crayons is fine too. Any manual coloring of the birds will help students learn and remember more about them.

How to Draw a Super Easy Birds Materials

  • Pencil. The Ticonderoga brand are the most reliable, make nice dark lines when you need them, and are the easiest to erase. Buying the pre-sharpened ones will save busy teachers a lot of time.
  • Eraser. Large ones you can hold in your hand do a much better job than just the pencil tip erasers, especially when erasing leftover pencil lines after tracing.
  • Black Sharpie Marker. These fine point permanent marker pens make nice black outlines, have a good tip for coloring, and never bleed when they get wet. Use them with good ventilation and add extra paper underneath to protect your tables.
  • Prang Crayons. These are a bit softer than other crayons so they sometimes look like oil pastels. They also have a some nice brown shades that Crayola does not have unless you buy their larger boxes.
  • Crayola Crayons. The reliable brand that always works well. The 24 pack has some of my favorite golden orange and yellow colors that seem a bit richer and warmer than the ones Prang has.

    Hi Mike, that sounds like a really sweet approach. What lucky students to have a teacher that can strum out some tunes to keep them engaged!

    Just wanted to let you know of a neat adaptation I made for this project with my K’s and 1’s yesterday.

    Instead of having them trace a circle, I had them use bingo dabbers to make a circle. We made the marks to the slowed down tempo of the “ABC Song” that I played on the ukulele to help them place the dots in a nice manner.

    Sharpie for details after the ink dried.

    Worked great!
