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!
This tutorial and our many others are suitable for ages 3 to 8 (preschool and above.)

✏️ TOOLS FOR SUCCESS
- How-To-Draw Template – International (A4) or U.S. Size (8.5×11 in)
- Sketching Pencil
- Polymer Eraser
- Outline Marker
- Coloring Tools
🎨 Parents: The only tools you need for these how-to-draw tutorials are: eraser, 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.
