Bird Drawing for Kids in 5 Simple Steps

1. Draw the outline.
To draw the outline of the bird’s head and body, all you need to do is draw a candy cane. You can draw a line as shown in the image below, and give it a slight curve from the top to make the head. Draw a small curve for the beak.
2. Draw the eyes.
Make a small circle under the curved head and fill it to make the eyes. Then draw the beak as shown in the image.
3. Draw the wings and complete the body.
To draw the wing of the bird, draw a semi-circle connecting the outline. Draw a bigger semi-circle and connect it at the bottom as shown in the image. The small arc at the bottom will form the tail of the bird.
4. Draw the feathers and the feet.
Draw three arcs inside the semi-circle to make feathers of the bird, and two arcs, one below another inside the tail. To draw the feet, make two small lines, parallel to each other, from the outer semi-circle, and make small arcs under the lines.
5. Colour the bird.
Colour the bird in orange and yellow. Colour the wings in yellow as shown in the picture, and the remaining body in dark orange. Its beak should be brown.
