Little kids love doing seasonal activities and Fall brings lots of things for children to make, color and draw! They can choose from the bottom orange/brown leaves, pumpkins, turkeys and other Fall animals!

Directed drawing is great for kids and my step-by-step drawing tutorials help the youngest of kids learn how to copy pictures of almost anything. Just recently I did an easy pumpkin drawing and a turkey drawing easy which my 7-year-old was able to copy following my instructions.

In our house we are currently focusing on Fall animals! We have made lots of easy squirrel crafts and now have turned our attention to hedgehog crafts. Our easy paper plate hedgehog made both my kids want to learn how to draw a baby hedgehog.

Use the three shapes as your guide to draw the hedgehog’s body shape. 

Step 2:

Erase the circle and the triangles neatly using an eraser. 

Last erase the part where you will be drawing the hedgehog’s ears, front legs and fore legs.

Step 3:

Use a protractor or free hand to draw a half-circular shape. Then draw some spikes on the half circular shape to draw the hedgehog’s back. Your easy hedgehog drawing should currently look as below.

Step 4:

Draw the hedgehog’s nose. Just simply draw a small oval-like shape on the front pointy part f the hedgehog’s body. Draw a half circle-shaped ear on the top as well for the hedgehog’s ear.

Step 5:

Draw an “L” shaped front leg and foreleg on the bottom part as shown in hedgehog picture below.

Draw another half-circular shape inside the ear.

Step 11:

Then use a dark brown shade to color the hedgehog’s back.

Draw and color the cheek using pink color. (Optional). I think this gives more contrast and is a nice finishing touch.
