How to Draw Umbrella for Kids

Now that you have collected all the materials, let’s walk through the steps for making a basic umbrella for kids drawing.

STEP 1: Drawing the Canopy

Start by drawing a semi-circle as the base for your umbrella’s canopy. From both ends, draw two lines extending downwards at an angle. These lines will eventually meet to form the sides of the umbrella. Join the ends of the lines with several zigzag curved lines to complete the canopy shape.

STEP 2: Drawing the Handle

Below the canopy, around the middle, draw a straight vertical line. At the bottom of this line, draw a curved shape to create the grip of the handle. You can make it simple or add some decorative elements like lines or dots. Since there are numerous umbrellas, some without the curved handle, you may draw a wider stub instead.

STEP 3: Detailing the Canopy

Inside the canopy, draw several V-shaped lines from the top edge to the bottom edge. These lines represent the ribs of the umbrella. At this point in your umbrella drawing for kids, they may add their favourite patterns or designs. You can also add a small stub on top of the umbrella.
