Balloon Drawing Step 1
Step 1: Let’s draw the balloon shape. Draw a circle at the top of your paper. Tip: You can use a round object, like a lid from a bottle, to use as a template. Just draw around the lid to get a perfect circle.
Step 2: Next add the lip of the balloon on the bottom right. Draw a small wing shape with ruffled bottom under the circle.
Step 3: Now you will draw in the string by sketching a wavy line from the center of the lip downward.
Step 4: Finally, sketch in a small square shape on the right center of the balloon to make it look rounded.
The only thing left to do now is to color in your beautiful flying toy! Go grab your markers, Crayola crayons, oil pastels or color pencils, or whatever you have on hand, and finish your artwork masterpiece! This one is colored in with red and yellow, but you can let your creativity go wild and use whatever colors you like! You get to decide!
