Making an impressive castle drawing may seem like a daunting task, but with these simple steps, you’ll have the perfect kids’ art project in no time! First, you’ll need to start by getting a piece of paper, a pencil, and an eraser. Then, use your creative mind to draw out the most wondrous castle your kid’s imagination can build!
The first thing you’ll need is a solid foundation. You can make several towers with curved or straight lines to form the outer walls or a single square base with several square turrets sticking up out of it. You can also draw a large circle, then draw several curved lines to create a moat-like feature. Don’t forget to draw in a drawbridge, too! Too keep the castles walls looking tall and grand, draw it in the shape of a triangle, or two circles and add two rectangular turrets on either end.
For added details, add in a bunch of windows and doorways. You can make them square, triangle, or round! To make the windows nicer looking, draw in a few shutters for a finishing touch. For a truly royal creation, add a few more details like a flagpole and retractable bridge at the front entrance of the castle.
Once you have the castle all outlined, it’s time to add some color and texture with crayons! For the most royal look, try coloring the castle in blues, purples, and golds. You can also draw in some green trees and other shrubbery around the base of the castle. You can use your imagination to make a few trees that look like they could be growing right out of the walls–that’ll make your castle drawing look absolutely magical!
Now, you can make your drawing come to life with a few finishing touches. Draw a path that leads up to the front of the castle with small stones, then add in a water feature like a fountain or a stream. Finally, if you’re feeling courageous, draw a few characters like a knight or dragon and place them around the castle. That’s it–your castle drawing is finished! Perfect for a kids’ art project, don’t you think?
For those still looking for ways to add extra life to their castle drawing, you can keep going by making your castle look even more realistic. Start adding shadows and highlights to give it more depth, or even use a photo editing program to add color and lighting to your creation. You can also add in other elements like clouds, stars, and other illustrative elements to make it look truly majestic!
The most important part of making castles for kids is having fun! So playing around with colors, sizes and shapes to customize your creation is totally encouraged. Adding textured shapes and other works of art to the walls of the castle is sure to make it stand out from all the rest! Don’t forget to get creative with things like creating flags, banners, and other decorations to give your castle an extra special touch.
Now you know how to create amazing-looking castles for your kids. Let your toddler’s imagination fly as they play around with shapes, colors and even a world of their own. It’s the perfect activity to strengthen their creative thinking skills and have lots of fun!
