How to Draw: A Unicorn

how to draw a unicorn

Welcome to the first episode of the ‘How to Draw’ series – drawing a unicorn! With school holidays here, I know the importance of keeping everyone occupied so the tantrums and fights don’t start! I’ve always used drawing, or craft, to occupy kids – mostly because I have everything handy to use and I love it myself, but also because kids really do love it. You’ll be hard pressed to find a child that won’t even sit down, if only for 10 minutes, to draw, colour or craft. And not only does it keep them occupied, it’s for all ages! I had a four, five and eleven year old drawing these unicorns – the four year old simply ended up colouring the tracing downloads in and cutting them out. Two hours of fun!

It’s so easy to begin the unicorn

All you need is paper, a pencil, an eraser and a black pen. I’ve tried to create this so everyone can use it, so you can print off the downloads, watch the video or simply straight from you computer screen!

I personally draw in a cartoon type style with animals usually, because it is easier to draw (and teach). The comic thick black lines are great for kids, drawing, and colouring – and they look fantastic!

If you’re after a different animal, I’m working on more now. Next up is a funky owl, and there’s also a kangaroo and giraffe in the works. If you’re looking for a specific animal, let me know and we’ll try to get it done for you!

All you need to do

To have a go at drawing the unicorn, simply download and print, or watch, the instructions below! Don’t forget to leave a mention if you have any questions or want to suggest a new drawing.

I can’t wait to share the next one with you – the owl has again been tested by all ages, and everyone loves it!
