Easy lion drawing for your kids

Here are six easy steps of how to draw a lion (and how to explain kids how to draw it):

1. Tell them to draw a big “M”. That would be half of the lion’s face.

2. Below it, draw a smaller “w” and connect to the “M”. That’s the lion’s lower face.

3. Above the “w”, draw an upside down triangle - that is the lion’s nose!

4. Above the nose, write two zeros. Those zeros are the beginning of the lion’s eyes.

5. Draw a circle in each of the zeros and color it. Those are the eyes of the tiger. Add a half square below the small “w” to make the lion’s chin.

6. Draw the lion’s hair around his face in a wavy circular pattern. Add half a circle from each side of the head to create the lion’s ears!
