I have prepared a simple instruction on how to draw a reindeer. It is a step-by-step drawing instruction for the little ones who want to learn how to draw simple pictures for the holidays. For the set, you can also try to make a drawing of Santa from my other How to Draw Santa instructions. Reindeer and Santa Claus are inseparable companions. Of course, the most famous reindeer in the harness is the red-nosed reindeer named Rudolf. If you want your reindeer you can also make a red nose.
Drawing a reindeer – instruction in pictures
The reindeer is an animal similar to a deer or a moose. It has horns and four legs. It is not the easiest animal to draw, but thanks to my instructions, I think everyone can make a nice drawing of a reindeer for Christmas. We’ll start by drawing simple, basic shapes and then move on to the details. Have a piece of paper and a pencil ready to start the exercise. It is also good to have an eraser – in case of any mistakes. Finally, you can correct the finished drawing with a felt-tip pen and color it with crayons or paint it with paints. If you have everything ready, we can start.
Time needed: 10 minutes
