This is a fun trick to show the little artist in your life.
Step 1: Write the word boy
Write the word ‘boy’ using only lowercase letters. Leave a bit of space between each letter.
Step 2: Draw the eyes
Put dots inside both the ‘b’ and the ‘o.’
Step 3: Make a jawline
Connect the tail of the letter ‘y’ to the bottom left-hand corner of the letter ‘b.’
Step 4: Connect the head
Connect the top of the letter ‘b’ to the top right of the letter ‘y’ in an arc.
Step 5: Draw the hairline
Connect the top left of the ‘y’ to the top of the ‘b’ to form the hairline.
Give your boy a fun hairstyle. Make zigzags, spirals, spikes, curls—maybe a mohawk!
Step 6: Draw the face
Fill in the features like eyebrows, nose, mouth, and ears. This is your chance to get creative. You can make him happy, sad, angry, or surprised—the choice is up to you.
Step 7: Color
Color your boy. Then hang him on the fridge or show him off to your friends.
