A star is an angular structure with five tips that looks brilliant in the night sky. It inspires awe in little ones. Let them try a hand at drawing the heavenly body by following the simple steps given below. If they want to sketch a simple, two-dimensional star, they can stop at step 7. If they want to make a more complex, three-dimensional one, they can follow all the steps up to the last one.
Step 1:Make a circle that serves as a guide.
Step 2:Draw intersecting horizontal and vertical lines that also act as guides.
Step 3:Draw a triangular structure sans the base.
Step 4:Make a smaller triangle.
Step 5:Sketch a small triangle at the right side.
Step 6:Repeat for the left side.
Step 7:Erase the guides.
Step 8: Make a cross-shaped structure.
Step 9:Draw two slanting lines joining at the center.
Step 10:Sketch two more slanting lines to complete the star.
Step 11: Color it in two shades.
If you want, you can choose a single color for the star or go with multiple shades. Choose ones that look bright on canvas. Children would need rulers for getting the straight lines perfectly. Note that the pointed tips of the arms of the star are all placed at equal distances on the circular guide. Kiddos might need a bit of practice before they get the shape correctly.
