Ancient Egypt would be the number one place I would love to revisit if I could travel back to history. I don’t think I would ever want to live there…maybe visit for a few hours 🙂 not in the heat of summer. To this day many scientists still argue how exactly ancient people in the past were able to build these massive structures without our modern technology. Nevertheless, they are massive yet super simple which makes our tutorial today very fun and easy! Let’s get started step by step transferring a 3d triangular pyramid into 2d form accurately.
Note: This tutorial and our many others are suitable for ages 3 to 10 (preschool and above.)

🖍️ Tools For Success
- Paper (Our Free How To Draw Template PDF)
- Polymer Eraser
- Outline Markers
- Coloring Tools (I recommend Crayola’s 140 Piece Coloring Case)
🎨 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 Pyramid
- In the middle of your paper, draw a vertical line with a diagonal line on its left side, then enclose them with a horizontally slanted line below to form a right triangle.
- On the vertical line’s right side, draw another diagonal line and enclose them with another horizontally slanted line below. Now, we already have a pyramid made with two right triangles.
- Draw a circular sun that slightly hides beneath the pyramid’s right side. Then, draw two long horizontal lines – one below the sun and the other on the left side parallel to the horizontal line on the right side.
- Let’s blend their color to a desert’s color – a bright yellow sun, light pitched desert sand and a yellowish pyramid with a lighter shade on the right and a darker one on the left side.
