There are so many ways to draw water because liquids have no actual form. But a common, practical, easy learnable way to draw this element in a way for very young children is droplets. Sweat, water, tears, anything liquid in form. It’s a very versatile doodle to master for young children to learn, in just 8 simple steps!

We will add more forms of water in this tutorial for the most common forms H20 takes.

🎨 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 on How to Draw Liquid Drops 

  1. From the top of your paper, draw an L-shaped curved line with a broader space on its bottom. Then, continue the line circularly until you reach the point where your pencil came. 
  2. Inside it, draw another smaller L-shaped curved line on the lower right. Make sure that it has minimal space inside. Then, on the bottom of it, draw a small circle. 
  3. Repeat the first two steps by drawing another two teardrops on its right side and the other on the lower part leaving small spaces between them. 
  4. These three droplets of tear look cute! Let’s put life to it by coloring it with blue. Waters is very reflective so you can add a little shine too for cuteness.

How To Draw Water: Frozen Ice Cubes Step-by-Step

  1. A cube of ice may look simple, but it takes a combination of several lines to draw it. So, let’s make simple steps for you. First, draw a square with curvy corners then, beneath each corner, draw short diagonal lines with a vertical and horizontal line to enclose it.
  2.  We already have a cube of ice, but let’s make three of them. Make another two ice cubes and place them under the first ice cube, making it the top center. Draw these two by repeating step one. 
  3. Take note that the ice should appear in 3D shape cubes. To finally complete the details, put an ice melt on the bottom by drawing curvy lines around the ice cubes. The more curves and irregularities, the better. 
  4. We know that natural ice has no color, but to add more life to it, let’s have it with various shades of blue! The darkest shade on the cubes’ sides, a lighter one in front, and the melted ice with the lightest shade.
