I’ve included a free printable at the bottom of this post.
Step One: Sheep’s Head
Start off by drawing a U shape for the sheep’s head. Try to make the bottom of the U-shape wider. This will help to give your sheep’s head some size.
Step Two – Add some hair
Next, we will add some hair to the sheep’s head. This is quite a fun part! Draw a cloud-like shape over the head of the sheep. Try to make the scallop pattern wider on the top and sides of the head and more narrow towards the bottom.
This step is sure to give your child experience in drawing different patterns.
Step Three: Add some features
Now it’s time to bring the sheep to life!
Let’s start by drawing two medium-sized circles for the sheep’s eyes. Add another smaller circle in the middle of the eyes to give the sheep some detail.
Next, we will draw a nose. There are many ways you can go about drawing the nose. It could be an upside-down triangular shape (like ours), a circle, or an oval. Give your child the opportunity to decide to help bring out their creativity!
Now we will give our sheep a smiley mouth. This can be done by drawing two wavy lines on the bottom of our sheep’s nose. Add a little straight line on the sides of your mouth to give it a happier look.
Oh, our sheep needs some ears too! Let’s draw two long ovals on the side of the sheep’s face as ears.
Yay! Our sheep seems to be full of life now!
Step Four: Draw the body
The body of a sheep is full of fur, so this step is very similar to step 2. We will be drawing an oval cloud-like shape again, but this time as the body.
Step Five: Draw the legs
Our sheep needs to walk and run so we need to add some legs to our drawing. This can be done by drawing four long rectangular shapes at the bottom of the sheep’s body. Round the edges of the rectangle, and don’t forget to give your sheep some hooves too.
Step Six: Add a tail
A sheep cannot be complete without having a furry tail! To draw the tail, simply draw half of an oval at the right end of the body. Don’t forget to make the tail fluffy, just like the body!
Step Seven: Color in your sheep
We are almost done with our drawing, but how can any drawing be complete without any color?
Guide your child into shading/coloring in the face, ears and legs of the sheep. One thing is for sure – children love coloring so they will definitely be excited to add some color to their new furry friend!
