How to Draw a Turkey for Kids
- Draw the head.
The turkey has a small head, so draw a small circle. But he has a powerful body that he has.
- Draw the eye and crest.
The eyes of birds are on the sides. We draw the turkey on the side, so there will be only one eye. Draw an eye just above the middle, and above it a dash is an eyebrow. Turkeys are also famous for their crests. It is located at the top of the head. We will draw two hairs for our turkey, this will be enough.
- Draw the neck and the wattle.
Turkeys have an unusual wattle on their beards. They are needed in order to regulate heat exchange in the body and not get sunstroke. To do this, start drawing the wattle in the form of a drop from the middle of the head. Turkeys are also famous for their powerful necks. They give them power and authority over other poultry.
- Draw the body and beak.
Like all birds, a turkey has a beak. Draw it in the shape of a triangle in the middle of the face. The largest of this bird is the body. So feel free to draw a large oval.
- Draw the tail.
One of the most beautiful parts of a turkey is the tail. It consists entirely of wavy lines.
- Draw a wing.
These birds do not fly, but they have wings. To do this, first draw an arc in the middle of the body, and above it a wavy line. Also add puffiness to the tail, draw a smaller wavy line inside the tail.
- Draw the legs.
Turkeys run fast because they have long and powerful legs. See how this is done in our drawing of a turkey and draw according to the example.
- Color the drawing.
The last step is to color in the turkey drawing using felt-tip pens and colored pencils.
