How to draw a deciduous tree (+ coloring)

We are surrounded by trees. Children often climb the trees to get some apples or cherries. Besides, they are always curious how their street looks like when they see it from the top. Your child can be engaged in tree drawing.

During the process you can tell your child why trees are so important to our planet, in such a way you can develop his or her love for nature.

You need:
1

Tree trunk

We begin to draw a tree from a tree trunk. Draw two vertical lines that are at a small distance from one another. Gradually widen the lower part of the trunk.

Extend the lower lines, depicting the beginning of the roots.

These lines mustn’t be straight, because the roots of trees bent in different directions.

Draw the main branches of the tree. They start directly from the trunk. Draw a line on the left of the trunk, this line must be slightly bent to one side.

Main roots

The main roots of the tree are big too. These roots were first to grow and that’s why they are longer than the other ones. Draw them with the help of curved lines on the left and on the right sides of the tree. Leave the space for another roots in the middle.
