How do you start Drawing Animals

I started by buying my 6 year old daughter a book on simple animal sketches and asked her to copy them. I realised it was rather difficult unless broken down into individual steps.

This is what prompted me to do my own easy animal drawings for kids! When you break things down it makes it so easy!! 

What is the Easiest Animal to Draw?

Many little kids always ask which animal is easiest to draw? To be honest there are easy drawings of most animals out there. 

In my opinion my dog drawing was the one I found simplest. I have not yet attempted to draw a fish, pig or chick and I think these are also easy animals to draw. Start with the easiest and watch your child’s confidence grow. Soon they will be asking you to do more complicated drawings. 

Have you tried some animal drawing ideas? If so which did you think was the most simple?
