How To Draw A Vampire

When kids learn how to draw pictures and things on their own, they’re way less fearful of them even when they’re meant to be a bit spooky.

What I love about this fun vampire printable is that it breaks down the drawing process in an easy-to-do way for kids of all ages to join in on the fun. This is one of my favorite drawing tutorials for Halloween!

There are actually quite a few benefits of this printable. It’s the perfect way to teach the kids how to follow directions to learn a new skill or craft.

This Vampire Drawing printable is also a really fun way for them to draw something from start to finish that they’ve maybe been afraid to try doing before!

Creative Ways to Use These Printables

Make a Halloween card for a friend

Fun cards can be for any holiday of the year! Once the kids get the hang of drawing a vampire, have them create homemade Halloween cards for some spooky fun surprises!

Getting a card with a cartoon vampire in it is such an adorable idea.

Draw and add in some fun colors

They’ll love feeling like a true artist when they draw the vampires and then color them in completely as well. Make sure to leave some room on the fridge to hang up their work of art!

You can even have the kids create more than one vampire and make them look completely different to get a different perspective.

Play some Monster Mash music and have a vampire-themed party

Kids are ready to have fun and celebrate literally all the time. Once they draw their vampire, crank up some Halloween tunes and have your own little Halloween celebration at home.

Equipment Needed / Helpful Tools

  • Printer: This one is a great budget printer. If you’re willing to spend just a little more though, this is a better option. And if you’re looking for an all-in-one home office machine, this one does it all, has high reviews and includes 2 years of ink.
  • Printer paper or cardstock: If you’re printing for one-time, quick use, print on regular printer paper. If you need the printout to hold up to being handled often or if you plan to laminate it to use it multiple times, choose cardstock.
  • Laminator: Laminating your printable is an inexpensive way to use it multiple times. Just use dry erase markers and wipe off when you’re done so you can use it again!  Alternately, you can cover the printable with clear contact paper to achieve the same thing.
