How to Draw a Rat For Kids - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Start your rat by drawing its head. Make the left side a little more narrow for its snout.

Step 2: Add in little ears on top of the head and then draw some details for the face. Put the nose on the front of the snout. It's important for rats to have a good sense of smell to find food. Add eyes, whiskers, and a mouth.

Step 3: Now draw curves for the rat's back and stomach. Don't forget to leave gaps for the legs.

Step 4: Draw two front legs in the first space and then add feet with toes.

Step 5: Do the same for the back legs and feet. Rats need to be able to scurry away fast and fit in small places so their back legs are pretty short too.

Step 6: Finish your rat with a long, curved tail.

Step 7: Now that you've finished your rat, color the tail and feet pink where rats don't grow fur.
