How To Draw A Cute Panda

Today, we’ll be learning how to draw a cute panda. There’s not much color involved but we’ve added 2 little blush dots on the cheeks just so we can have a little color.

We did a cute, little “x” for the belly button but you could try changing it to a star, heart or any other shape that you think might look good.

Art Supplies

Here’s a list of supplies we recommend to use, however, feel free to use whatever you can find around the house!

  • Pencil, Marker, Sharpie, Pen (Anything you can draw with!)
  • Paper (We love marker paper but use anything you can find).
  • Colored Markers (if you want to color the drawing).
  • Your imagination (feel free to change colors or add things to the drawing!).

A Few Tips Before You Start Drawing

  • The eye can be a little tricky here to make sure there is still white space around it. The easiest way to deal with that is to create 2 circles with the marker and leave space between them. That will be your white space for the eyes.
