How to Draw a Sloth for Kids

Step 1.

Start with a circle for the head like always, and then draw a facial guide.

Step 2.

Sketch out the shape of the head and then draw in the sloth's arm which is rounded at the top.

Step 3.

Continue to draw out the body until the back, stomach and leg is drawn. Add the long nails on the foot, then proceed to step four.

Step 4.

Lastly, draw in your thick branch and add a swirl for the bark detailing. When that is done you can draw in the round markings for the eyes then add the small bead like shapes for the eyeballs. Draw the nose, then the claws on the front limb. Erase any mistakes you made while you tackled this lesson to clean up the drawing.

Step 5.

Here is your adorable sloth all ready to get colored in. I hope you enjoyed another fun tutorial on one of the strangest animals around.

Here is a fun animal to draw when you want to tackle something easy and creative. How about learning the ropes on drawing a sloth for kids. The sloth is one of those species that has a lot of character. Their look is subtle but very distinct. I hope that this tutorial is going to be as fun for you as it was for me when I made it. I chose to have the sloth hanging from a thick branch because as some of you may know, sloths love trees and they also love being silly. Drawing a sloth isn't going to be that hard for you folks to replicate so just take your time and have fun with the tutorial. I shall return momentarily with more fun so stay tuned in.
