After almost 50 published how to draw tutorials, it occurred to me I didn’t have any sport related topics! We’re going to draw hockey – a popular sports game played on ice with a stick and puck.
This tutorial and our many others are suitable for ages 3 to 8 (preschool and above.)
And why not check out our collection of free coloring pages for kids! We update our resources library regularly so feel free to check back as we add more and more content. We’re currently at over 1000+ coloring pages and tons more how-to-draw tutorials!
✏️ 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.
Step-by-Step Guide: Draw Hockey Pock With Stick
- Draw a small cylindrical shape. Parallel to it, draw two diagonal lines enclosed with a curved end on top while leaving the lower end open to form a stick.
- On the stick’s open end, draw a rectangular blade adjacent to it. The sides away from the shaft must be wider than the side connecting to the post, making it an isosceles trapezoid.
- Let’s add more details to the shaft to make it look like one. Draw three short horizontal lines for the knob at the top of the shaft and another four slightly diagonal, horizontal lines on the blade.
- Now, let’s color it with a dark gray hockey pock, a brown shaft, a red knob, and a white blade with a touch of brown.
Excuse the misspelling, I did it super late and I’m too lazy to change it right now 🙂 the prints in the books will be corrected don’t worry.
