How To Draw Baby Shark (Pinkfong) – Super Easy Art Guide For Kids

The catchy sing-song video went viral and within a month, almost every parent with children under the age of 10 has heard it over and over and over. Some hate it; some (mostly kids) love it. I am a big kid and I LOVE baby shark. Not annoying at all 🙂 We have a little toddler too and my husband and I sing it to her when she’s too deep into a tantrum. It makes her a little easier to approach and calm down. For that reason, I think Baby Shark is a great tool for young kids! I pay homage to Baby Shark with this drawing tutorial – it’s really super cute and easy to draw. I break it down step by step so anyone can draw it!

🖍️ Tools For Success

🎨 Parents: The only tools you need to use these how-to-draw tutorials are: an eraser, a pencil, and a piece of paper. But – if you have them around – a sketching pencil makes for fainter and softer lines that help kids build fine motor accuracy. I also recommend going over the sketch pencil with a black outline marker when you’re done for a neater finish. Lastly, erase the pencil marks before adding color.

Step-by-Step Guide on How To Draw A Baby Shark 

  1. Draw a circular facial outline with a pointed triangular fin on top of the head, then divide the face into halves using a slightly curved horizontal line. 
  2. After completing the outline, let’s have the facial details – two big rounded eyes with a smaller iris inside each, two small nose holes in between the eyes, and a curvy, smiling mouth beneath the lower half of the face with five sharp triangular teeth on the upper lip and a curved-shape tongue on the lower lip. 
  3. Below the head, connect an inverted triangular body with a curved pointy end. Imagine an inverted Santa Hat; it’s similar to that. 
  4. Enclose the baby shark’s body with two wide sharp triangular fins on each side, tracing it downwards through the body to form an inverted semi-circular tail in the end. 
  5. Finally, we can color our cute baby shark with yellow on the outer body parts, white on the inner, black on the iris, red in the mouth, pink on the tongue, and white on its teeth and around the iris. 
  6. You can also have this baby shark in pink and blue, depending on your favorite!
