How To Teach Children To Draw Stars

I have an easy, fool proof way to teach children to draw stars. 


Grab some paper and something to write with.


Start by having your child write a capital A.


When completing the middle of the A, have your child extend the line through the A on both sides.


Starting at either the left or right side of the extended line, draw a line to the bottom of the opposite leg.


Draw a line from the remaining end of the extended line to the bottom of the opposite leg.


As easy as that, a star made and...


Before you know it, you'll have a sheet full of stars.

And, it all started with an A.

  2. What a clever way to teach how to draw a star. I would have never thought of starting with an A! Probably because I start out with a V which would be a complicated route to teach a kid.

  3. I learned a star by making one continuous line. I love little tricks like this. Kids think you are super awesome when you show them these things, but not a lot of bloggers think to share them. Good post my friend!

  5. Haha. This is a very timely post. I was just trying to teach my 6 yr old to draw a star this past weekend. We made it through, but this way would have been so much easier and less frustrating for both of us. Great post.

  7. I must practise this with Madeleine, since her favorite song is Twinkle Twinkle she will think she is very clever!

  9. Leave it to you to find a better way to teach a kid to draw a star! I learned (and taught) by drawing the continuous line thing...so much harder. You are one clever and awesome mom!
