If you’re looking for something to help keep the kids (and the big kids!) entertained, then look no further. Our Project Manager and artistic ace Amie Pryal has put together a fun, easy step-by-step guide to draw your very own unicorn in six easy steps.
Read on for more information and click here to download the guide in an easy-to-print format. Happy drawing!
Draw a U-shape for the head and add two large circles for the eyes. Draw two smaller circles inside the eyes for a cartoon look.
Draw two triangle shapes above the head for the ears. Put these equally spaced apart. Add two small lines at the bottom of the U-shape for nostrils and two lines in the ears.
Draw smaller circles between the ears, one on top of the other. Then add a pointy top for the horn. Add the fringe around the ears and horn to fill in the gaps. Be creative – it’s only hair so it doesn’t have to be perfect!
For the legs draw two large circles beneath the head and add three lines in the middle of the two circles. Join the three lines together at the bottom with a W-shape. Then add two curved lines a little higher to create the line of the hooves.
Draw lines to connect the two circles to the head and legs. Add a ponytail by drawing small U-shapes along the head on one side, and down the body on the other. It’s hair so be creative!
And now you have your unicorn! Feel free to add extra elements to the body if you like, such as wings or a tail. (To draw the wings, add two swirly lines on both sides of the body and join them up with long U-shapes, like fingers.) Then colour your unicorn in!

Why we love it
“It’s been really fun creating this little tutorial for kids to follow along with (or adults, we’re not judging). I think we could all do with a few more magical unicorns in our lives. We hope it provides a little bit of fun while you’re staying safe at home.”
