Most little kids love learning how to draw, but when they see a completed picture, they are instantly put off as they think it is too difficult. This is why I have created lots of different easy drawings for kids in a step-by-step format to help them draw things easily. 

So far I have a cute hedgehog drawing, an easy elephant drawing for kids and I plan on adding lots more ideas soon!

My children adore dogs and love looking at pictures of dogs, so I thought it was time for me to teach them how to draw a realistic dog themselves! After the finish doing this they can decorate some of my easy puppy coloring pages

What will you do with your puppy drawing for kids?

You should be very proud of completing this puppy drawing easy and therefore should show it off as much as possible. 

Will you stick it on your bedroom wall or maybe you will use it for the front of a card. You could easily turn it into a Happy Birthday card for someone who loves dogs. 

If you are feeling very artistic why not add some other things to your picture? What other things would you associate with dogs? How about a kennel or a small ball or bone for the dog to chew. 

You could even add green grass, a blue sky and some sunshine.
