How to Draw a Turtle for Kids

Artist: Dawn / April 29, 2011

Step 1.

Start with a very simple half circle like you see here and then draw in some round patterned shapes.

Step 2.

Draw out the turtles head like so, and then make the lip which over laps the mouth, and then draw small circle for the eye as well as color it in.

Step 3.

Now you will very easily draw the front legs and feet like so as well as the toe nails. Notice how the turtle's other leg is shorter and hidden from it's full view.

Step 4.

Lastly, draw out the back legs and then draw in the toe nails too. When that is done all you have to do is draw the tail, and you are all done. Clean up the drawing but remember that there was no guides used in this lesson.

Step 5.

Here is your super cute turtle when you are all done, now you can color it in. Thanks for joining me with another lesson on how to draw a turtle for kids.
