Step 1

Let’s draw a squid! Start with a very long oval, making sure to mark a square at the end for the top.

Step 2

Draw the first fin at the edge of the oval. Draw a line along the edge of the oval, making sure to add a hump at the tip of the fin.

Step 3

Draw a second fin on the other side of the squid’s body. Track it like you did the first fin!

Step 4

In front of the body where you drew the square for the head, draw two dots on either side of the square for the eyes.

Step 5

At the end of the head section, draw short tentacles by drawing five thin, squiggly lines. Here’s a tip: they don’t all have to be the same size, and they don’t have to go in the same direction!

Step 6

Finally, trace the two longer tentacles, and these tentacles are straighter and go in the same direction. Here’s a trick: make the lines at the ends of the two tentacles pointy! This is your squid! Did you know that squid can grow up to 40 feet long and weigh up to 1,000 pounds?
