Step 1

First of all, you’ll need to draw a fringe, to make sure your unicorn is cute! This fringe can be long or short, depending on what you think looks best.

Step 2

Then you’ll need to draw half an egg, or a ‘U’ shape underneath this fringe. This will make the head of the cute unicorn. Unicorns look a lot like horses, so if you’re wondering how big or small to make your ‘U’ shape, make sure you think about a horse as you’re drawing.

After that, you’ll need to draw the ears of your unicorn. Put one on either side of the top of the head, with the fringe in the middle. Make sure one side is a straight line and the other side is a curved line.

Now it’s time to add a magical horn in the middle of the head, right on top of the fringe! Did you know people used to sell ‘unicorn horns’ for lots and lots of gold during the 1500s? That was a long time ago! So, draw a cone shape, and you can make this as big or small as you like – just make sure it looks magical!

Now it’s time to draw the back legs of your magical unicorn. Your unicorn will use their set of 4 legs to spread their magic, so make sure you draw them in long enough to see behind the front legs, and with good hooves at the end of their legs. Make sure they look strong, as unicorns are strong enough to fight elephants if they ever disagree! Elephants are big creatures, aren’t they? And if you’re worried your unicorn’s legs don’t look right, make sure you keep looking at the picture above as you draw them in!
