Who doesn’t want a beautiful pair of wings? Unfortunately, science hasn’t yet invented flying wings for people. But when I look at my sleeping daughter, I can’t help but feel like she’s my little angel, missing only a pair of wings. If you want your little one to learn how to draw a pair of pretty blue wings, you’ve come to the right place. Unlike other complicated tutorials out there, we’re going to create an easy, cartoon version of angel wings that anyone, from preschoolers to kindergarteners and beyond, can follow along with.
About Our Simple Drawing Tutorials for Kids
At [website url], we specialize in creating very simple and easy drawing tutorials that are perfect for young children. Our tutorials are suitable for ages 3 to 8 and focus on using simple lines and easy shapes, allowing kids to build a strong foundation in drawing. Converting a 3D object into 2D line art is not always easy, especially when working with young children. That’s why our tutorials are designed to help kids practice their pencil grip, hand-to-eye coordination, shape stacking, strokes, precision, and more. Additionally, following step-by-step directions helps improve reading skills, although our little ones may be too young to read just yet!
Tools You’ll Need
To get started, gather the following materials:
- Paper (Our Free How To Draw Template PDF)
- Polymer Eraser
- Outline Markers
- Coloring Tools (I recommend Crayola’s 140 Piece Coloring Case)
Parents, all you need are an eraser, a pencil, and a piece of paper to follow along with our how-to-draw tutorials. However, if you have a sketching pencil, it can help create fainter and softer lines, allowing kids to work on their fine motor accuracy. I also suggest using a black outline marker to go over the sketch pencil lines for a neater finish. Remember to erase the pencil marks before adding color.
Let’s Draw Cartoon Angel Wings for Preschoolers
Imagine an angel about to fly. Start by drawing a broken heart shape horizontally on the left side. Then, add five small “u” curves at the bottom to make it more wing-like.
Inside the wings, draw two series of parallel curve lines to create a feathery texture. Remember, we’re going for a simple, fluffy wave-like appearance, so don’t worry about adding intricate feather details.
Repeat the first two steps to create a mirror image of the wings on the opposite side. Place another broken heart shape parallel to the first wing.
To give your wings a heavenly touch, draw a circular nimbus (halo) at the center-top between the wings.
Your angel wings are now complete! For a finishing touch, choose either blue or white (or any color you prefer) to fill in the wings.
If you’d like to add an additional halo to your angel, simply repeat step 4. Draw two flattened oval circles embedded within each other to create a halo ring. Halos often have a glowing, bright yellow appearance.
- The instant print button is located in the upper left-hand corner. If you’re using a mobile device and can’t see the instant print icon, switch your mobile browser to “Desktop Site” mode.
- Adjust your printer settings with previews to ensure the best print quality.
- If you’re in North America and using standard U.S. letter-sized paper (8.5in x 11in), printing should work seamlessly. International users with A4 paper can also print without issues, although there may be a slight amount of extra white space around the edges, which is usually not noticeable.
