Simple Steps to Camel Drawing for Kids

Written By Pamily | Edited By Varsha & Adi | Updated on 21th May, 2024

Camels are super friendly and amazing animals with big humps on their backs. They can go a long time without water because their humps store fat, which gives them energy. Do you remember when Grandpa used to tell us stories about camel rides through the dunes? We used to feel the warm sun and the gentle breeze while sitting on the camels.

Let us give you a step-by-step guide to camel drawing for kids so you can help your child with their passion for drawing. Developing co-curricular skills will help them get admission in the top schools in Bangalore, where kids are encouraged to follow their passions and given equal importance to both academics and other interests. We have also attached a downloadable worksheet for your child to practice on. Let us begin. Shall we?

1.  Basic List of Materials

Here is a list of materials you need for drawing and colouring a camel:

  • Drawing Paper
  • Pencil
  • Eraser
  • Sharpener
  • Crayons or Coloured Pencils 
  • Stable Drawing Surface

2. Step-by-Step Guide to Camel Drawing for Kids:

Camels have big, soft eyes and can make funny noises. Let us draw one with the following steps:

Step 1: Draw the structure.

First, draw a plus sign in the middle of the page to help guide your drawing of the camel. At the top left part of the plus sign, draw a small circle for the head of the camel. From the middle of the plus sign, slightly towards the bottom left, draw an oval for the body of the camel. Now, connect the small circle to the oval with a curved line, as shown in the picture.

Step 2: Make the hump.

Next, add another curved line slightly above the first one, connecting the head of the camel to its body. Extend this curve along the body, creating a small bump followed by a larger bump to form the hump of the camel. From the head of the camel, draw a small line outward to draw the mouth, as shown in the image. The mouth will look like C but with sharp edges.

Step 3: Add the legs.

Add four vertical lines with slight bends to form the legs of the camel. Next, draw a small curved line from the lower part of its neck and connect it to the second leg. To complete the mouth of the camel, draw an almost w-shape from the mouth area down to the circle of the face.

Step 4: Modify. 

Add a small line on top of the mouth’s gap. Now, draw small, leaf-shaped ears, placing the second ear slightly behind the first. Complete the legs by adding another vertical line next to each of the four lines already drawn. Extend the hump of the camel along its back until it nearly touches the last leg.

Step 5: Complete it. 

Now, erase the plus sign from your page and the lines over the ear. Below the forehead, add a small oval for the eyes and an inverted U for the eyebrow. From the end of the hump and the leg, draw a small tail with two lines curving downward along the body of the camel. Finally, add a hairy part at the end of the tail, shaped like a leaf.

Step 6: Colour it.

Now, erase the oval shape from the body of the camel and colour it with shades of brown. You can use lighter and darker shades of brown to add texture and make the camel look more realistic.

Final Touches

After colouring, carefully look into the picture for any extra marks or lines, and gently erase them to make the camel clean. You can use a dark brown for its tail. And also use your imagination to add things up for fun, like maybe some grass on its mouth to show that it’s chewing on grasses. You can even grab your black marker and border the camel’s body or even add a square frame to your drawing, it will give the picture a finished look.


  • There is not much to change in the colour of the camel but you can always use various shades of the same colour to add effects to its body.
  • You can even change the facial expression of the camel with a few simple adjustments. For example, replace the oval eyes with small downward curves to make the camel look sleepy, or change the shape of its eyebrows to give it a different expression.
  • Take your time and have fun! Drawing is about expressing yourself, so do not worry about perfecting it.
  • If you make a mistake, do not stress. Use your eraser and try again.
  • Practice makes perfect, so keep drawing until you become a pro!
