We all know, rockets are super cool spaceships that fly higher than anything else in the sky. They have a pointy nose to cut through the air and powerful engines at the bottom that burn hot enough to make the rocket zoom upwards quickly. Whoosh! Rockets leave a stream of fire and smoke behind them as they go up. Let us get started with the drawing!

1.  Basic List of Materials

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

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

2. Step-by-Step Guide for Drawing the Rocket

Rockets are amazing because they take us on space adventures, soaring through the galaxy and discovering new wonders! We will help you create the perfect rocket to soar your imaginations higher.

Step 1: Draw the shape. 

Start by lightly drawing a dotted rectangle for reference. Then, draw a horizontal line below the rectangle. Extend two vertical lines from this line to form an inverted ‘U’ shape. You can refer to the picture for guidance. 

Step 2: Add the wings.

Now, erase the lines of the rectangle. Next, draw two wings at each side at the bottom of the rocket. These wings look like the rocket’s legs.

 Next, draw the rocket’s wings on each side at the bottom, as shown in the picture.

Step 3: Add the Windows.

Next, draw two small circles vertically, inside the rocket to look like windows. Then, add a thin rectangle shape at the bottom of the rocket, along with the dotted straight line that represents the other wing of the rocket, but from a front-view. 

Step 4: Add other details.

Now, add some more details to your rocket. Draw a short, straight line at the very top of the rocket. Then, in the middle of the rocket, draw two horizontal straight lines, as shown in the picture. And add one more line on the top of the rocket, just below the curve. 

Step 5: Modify.

Modify the drawing by carefully erasing the dotted line and any extra lines or marks to make it look neat. 

Step 6: Colour it!

Make the rocket super colourful! Use yellow for the top part of the rocket, red for the body, and blue for the windows. The wings and the thin rectangle at the bottom could be dark blue. Feel free to use any colour to make your rocket vibrant and unique!

Final Touches

Look carefully and remove any extra marks on the drawing. Now, grab your black pen and outline the border of the rocket to make it more realistic. This will act as a boundary for the colours in the rocket. You can add extra windows to the rocket or even a trail of smoke at the end for an added touch of adventure! 

Wonderful! Your drawing looks awesome. Pat yourself on the back for such a beautiful rocket drawing, it looks perfect. 

Tips and Tricks to Draw

  • You can add any colour to the body of the rocket that makes it look good to you.
  • We would all love to take a ride with the rocket that you have just created! You can make it even more exciting by adding more details to it as you may like.
  • 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!


Awesome! Your child has made a beautiful drawing of the rocket! It looks so adventurous. Turn their artwork into a poster and hang it up in their room. They will love seeing their drawings all the time, as that will be a reminder to them of their creativity. 

Oh! Do not forget about the worksheet below to practise the drawing even better. Drawing is such a fun way to spend your leisure time! Keep up the great work, and have a good time.
