Directed Drawing for Kindergarten


Drawing is such a wonderful creative way for students to express themselves and begin their journey in writing. Starting with a picture, full of detail and expression can be a wonderful way for students to feel inspired to tell a great story.

Our youngest learners often need some encouragement to get started with their drawing. Our Directed Drawing packets provide you with drawing projects that can easily extend into detailed writing lessons. 

Today I would love to give you a sneaky peek into a project from our My Second Directed Drawing packet. Designed for the littlest of learners, this collection includes some basic drawings perfect for Kindergarten.


We did the 'big draw' page - which is perfect for creating an art project. Black marker and watercolor are our favorite.

  • First draw a rectangle vase.

  • Next draw 3 circles. 

  • Join the circles to the vase with some lines - these are stems!

  • Draw petals on the flowers. On the first flower, draw big wide petals. Jump, jump, jump around the circle. 

  • Practice smaller jumps by drawing smaller petals on the other 2 flowers. 

  • Do some loopy lines on the vase for decoration. These loops take lots of practice!


This flower vase is one of the drawings in our My Second Directed Drawing packet. There are 4 projects to choose from when you do this drawing - Big Draw, Classic Directed Draw, Draw and Write or Read, Draw, Write! It would look fantastic on a Mother's Day card too!

Hop over to TpT to find this fun collection. You'll be ready with a gorgeous art lesson in a flash!
