Step 1: Start with the circles

First, Start by drawing two circles, one inside the other, just like this. These circles are like a guide that helps our star stay nice and straight.

Step 2: Connect the Circles

Now, let’s draw straight lines connecting the edges of the circles. It’s like connecting dots all around the circles. Your drawing will look like a cone or two lines crossing each other around the circles.

Step 3: Refine the Star

Let’s use our eraser to remove the two circles we drew earlier. They were just guides to help us. Now, we can refine our star shape as we like. Imagine your little star twinkling and shining at you as you perfect its shape!

Step 4: Create the tail

Let’s draw two slightly curved lines at the top right corner of our star. These lines show the path of a shooting star like it’s zooming towards us! They help us see which way our star is moving.

Step 5: Refine the tail

Now, at the other end of the curved lines, let’s add some zigzag lines along the tail of our shooting star. These lines show how fast it’s moving! Make them short and quick, like little dashes. Once you’re happy with the star drawing, go over the lines with a darker pencil or marker to make them stand out. Your star drawing is all set to shine bright!

Final Touches

Finally, let’s make our star sparkle with colour! You can choose shiny metallic markers in gold, silver, or even glittery ones. Or you can use yellow crayons, coloured pencils, or markers to make your star twinkle at you.

Tips and Tricks
