The basis of the wheel is a circle of a medium size. Draw it with a help of the compass. Watch your child not to injure himself or herself. If your child does not know how to use a compass, use a round object and circle it.
Draw a smaller circle inside the figure marking the wheel’s volume.
Marking the center
Mark the wheel’s center with the help of a small circle. The figure should resemble a wheel.
Inner parts of the control levers
Draw the parts of the control lever with the help of the ruler, which are inside the wheel. The lines are intersected in the center.
Draw two more parts to make eight control levers.
Erase the lines of the control levers, which are placed in the center. Try not to mar the circle.
Ships’ wheels are often decorated with carvings. Draw the carvings on the upper parts of the control levers.
The carvings should be identical.
The details can be very small so help your child if he or she can’t draw something correctly.
Draw another circle in the center.
Upper parts of the control levers
Draw the upper parts of the control levers with carvings. Lines curve towards each other in the center. This allows you to hold the ship’s wheel better.
Draw the control levers next to the each inner side.
Try to make these details look similar.
Decorate the smallest central circle with carving in the form of a star.
Draw a hexagon star and make it voluminous with the help of straight lines that are connected in the center.
