🖍️ 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 Firetruck 

  1. Draw a big circular tire with two small circular interiors inside it that are parallel to each other on the left side of your paper. 
  2. Repeat step one on the right side to complete the pair of tires parallel to each other.
  3. Connect the tires with long parallel horizontal lines between them, and enclose the lines with curves on each side of the tire, forming an oval-shaped base. 
  4. Above the base, draw an irregular and enclosed body shape – a more forward lower front than the upper front and a higher body top on the left side than on the right. 
  5. Draw two rectangular windows of different sizes on the left side of the truck and a c-shaped glass shield in front of the firetruck, a ladder with six horizontal steps in the middle, a headlight below the glass shield. 
  6. Let’s add four circular folds of water hose parallel to each other beside the ladder. On the top left side of the hose, draw two horizontal lines parallel to each other – one long on top and a shorter one below it. Then, connect a vertically-placed rectangle, enclosing the hose with triangular but flat ends. 
  7. On top of the firetruck, draw a rectangular siren light with a short vertical line in the middle, dividing it into two. 
  8. For the final touch, make a colorful firetruck – gray tires with black interiors, orange firetruck body, blue windows, black ladder, yellow headlight, red and blue siren, pale yellow hose with gray end and a red on the center, and a white base connecting the tires.
