How to Draw a Woodpecker For Kids - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: To begin drawing a woodpecker, draw a circle for the head.

Step 2: Inside the circle, add a round dot with a circle surrounding it for the eye. Draw a long, thin triangle for the beak. The woodpecker uses its sharp beak to tap holes into trees. Add a line down the center of the beak for the mouth.

Step 3: Draw a partial oval for the woodpecker's chest. Leave a space on its back for the wing.

Step 4: Now draw two thin legs connecting to pointed feet and toes. These will help the woodpecker stand on tree branches.

Step 5: Draw an oval in the space on the back for the wing. Add a curvy line halfway down for the feather pattern and add some lines to the ends to show texture. On the back end of the woodpecker, draw a half oval for the tail with lines for feathers on the end.

Step 6: Now that you have drawn your woodpecker add some color and a tree!
