How to Draw a Caterpillar for Kids

Artist: Dawn / December 13, 2011

Step 1.

The first thing we need to do is draw a circle for the head of the insect, and then draw a horizontal line that starts inside of the circle for the face and body guide.

Step 2.

Thicken the circle shape of the caterpillars head and then draw two antenna.

Step 3.

Next, draw and color in two eyes and then draw a chibi style mouth.

Step 4.

Draw out the worm like body and when you do this make some bumps for the top lining like so. Next, draw some dividing lines on the caterpillars body to give the insect some wiggle room.

Step 5.

And finally for the last step all you have to do is draw out the bumpy pattern under the body for the little legs, and then clean up the drawing because this was your last drawing step.

Step 6.

Here you color in your caterpillar like so, and that is it. I hope you enjoyed yourself as you tackled the simple task of drawing a caterpillar for kids.
