2. A step-by-step guide to baby drawing for kids

Step 1: Draw the baby’s head

Begin by drawing a simple circle in the centre of the page. This circle will represent the baby’s head. Keep it smooth and even.

Step 2: Draw the baby’s body

Below the head, draw a pot-like shape to make the baby’s body. Make sure the shape is symmetric.

Step 3: Draw the baby’s legs

Begin by drawing two short vertical lines from the baby’s body. These will be the legs. Keep both legs symmetrical to maintain balance in your drawing.

Step 4: Draw the baby’s hands and feet

Draw two curved lines extending from the baby’s shoulders to form the arms. At the end of each arm, draw five small ovals to represent fingers. Draw two small ovals on the bottom of each leg for the baby’s feet. Add tiny curved lines on top of these ovals to represent toes.

Step 5: Draw the baby’s face and outline

  • Begin with two small circles in the centre of the face to represent the eyes.
  • Draw a curved line above each eye for the brows. 
  • To create the nose, draw a tiny upside-down triangle directly below the line between the eyes.
  • Draw a wide, shallow “U” shape under the nose to represent the mouth. 
  • Draw two small, curved lines on each cheek to represent dimples.
  • Draw a spiral line on the top of the head to represent the hair of the baby.

Step 6: Final Touches

Fill in the baby’s skin with a light pink while adding blue eyes. To create rosy cheeks, use a slightly darker shade of pink. Choose a soft brown for the hair and create gentle curls on the head. 

Tips and Tricks for Drawing a Baby

  • Use simple shapes, like circles and ovals, to outline the head and body of your baby. It’s like putting together a puzzle with easy pieces!
  • Look at pictures of real babies to see their faces and expressions. Notice their big eyes, chubby cheeks, and tiny noses. It’s like finding inspiration from the world around you!
  • Think about what your baby will be doing. Is it crawling, sitting, or maybe even sleeping? Decide first, and then start your drawing.
  • Start with basic lines and shapes, then add more details like fingers, toes, and hair. You can draw hair as small curved lines or soft zigzags.
  • Draw lightly with a pencil, so you can easily erase any mistakes. Once you like how it looks, you can go over your lines with a darker pencil or marker.


Drawing a baby can be a wonderful and creative experience! By following these easy steps and using your imagination, you can make a cute baby drawing. Remember to start with simple shapes and study real babies to get ideas. Add details like fingers, toes, and clothes gradually. Don’t be afraid to use different colours to make your baby unique and special. Most importantly, enjoy the process of bringing your baby to life on paper!
