Drawing Process

Get that Stem Right: Start with a wiggly slide, drawing two long lines side by side, but not touching; they’re best friends but like personal space – that’s your flower’s stem.


Leaf Time: Let’s give our stem a cool cape – a leaf! Draw a curvy line that starts from the stem, swooshes out and comes back like a boomerang, but let it stick to the stem at the end.

Cup for the Petals: Our tulip needs a cup to hold its petals! Draw a wide “U” shape at the top of the stem; imagine it’s a cozy nest cradling the soon-to-be petals.


First Petal Peek: Above the cup, draw a little hill that peaks in the middle, but don’t go all the way down on the sides. It’s the top of your first petal saying “Hello!”

Side Petal Pop: It’s time for the wings – uh, I mean side petals. Draw a line from each side of the cup, curving it out and up like a superhero cape flapping in the wind. Connect the tips back to the petal hilltop.


Second Petal’s Debut: There’s another sneaky petal hiding behind! To show it’s there, we’ll draw a bumpy line (think of drawing a cloud) right under the first petal’s peak.

Details, Details: Now let’s play connect-the-dots inside our tulip. Join the bottom of the front and back petals with a dip in the middle. This makes it look like the petals are hugging the flower.

Leaf the Second: Because two is better than one, let’s draw another leaf! This time, the leaf is pointing down, starting from the stem and making a big curve like a water slide.


Finishing Touch: Give your flower some texture lines. A few ‘V’ and ‘Y’ shapes inside the petals make it look super fancy.

And there you have it, a tulip that’s so pretty, bees might just fly out of your drawing! Grab some crayons to color your masterpiece; tulips come in all sorts of bright, happy colors. Have fun with your new flowery friend!
