Here's a colorful hummingbird children can draw in a few steps. The colors in the picture may be used, or your child's imagination can make this a uniquely colored hummingbird. Finding a book on hummingbirds and their colors can turn this simple drawing into a learning activity too. Discovering the various colors of hummingbirds and if the male or female are most colorful and why could all be part of the learning experience of drawing a hummingbird.
Have your child use a pencil to sketch the shape of the hummingbird. Once he likes his outline of his hummingbird, he can use crayons or markers to darken the lines he likes and color in his hummingbird.
Learning to sketch lightly with a pencil helps to lessen frustration. The lines can be erased easily. Often the lines don't need to be erased. When they are sketched lightly, just going over the wanted lines can make the first unwanted sketches seem to disappear.
Children may find sketching helps them to create their own drawings.
