How to Draw the Sun for Kids
- Draw a circle.
Start by drawing the circle with simple broken lines so that you can easily erase them if you start to form an oval. When the sketch lines look like a circle, trace a clear sketch of the circle. You can ask mom to draw an even circle, but we advise you to try to draw yourself to improve your skills.
- Draw a smile.
A smile can be drawn in different ways: a wide smile with a thin line, or a smile with a single curved line. Choose the one that is more pleasant for you. We suggest making a smile that looks like a semicircle. Draw a line, then start at one end and draw a semicircle to the other.
- Draw the eyes and eyebrows.
Select the location of the eyes, mark the size with strokes. We draw horizontal lines for each eye, then arcs above them, semicircular lines. Don’t forget to draw the eye pupils. Draw round dots exactly in the center of the eyes. The eyes are drawn, proceeding to the eyebrows. Draw small, curved lines above each eye. If you wish, you can sketch out small eyelashes.
- Draw the sun’s rays.
There are important elements left to make the sun. We draw many rays located at the same symmetrical distance from each other. Our rays are small ovals. You can start at the top and draw each next to the right or left of the middle. You can draw first from above, then from below, then to the right and to the left, then the rest.
- Color the sun.
You can color the sun as we do: the circle and the rays are yellow, the smile can be painted red or pink, but the eyes are not painted over. You can paint the sun orange or red like at dawn, add ruddy cheeks or give color to your eyes and make them blue or green or brown.
