10 Step-by-Step Muppets Drawing Tutorials for Kids
Puppets have been around since ancient times. But the art of puppet-making reached new audiences in the 1950s with the creation of Jim Henson's famous Muppets.
Everyone recognizes names like Miss Piggy, Kermit the Frog, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, and Animal from The Muppet Show. But the Muppets weren't limited to that one venue.
Kermit also appeared on Sesame Street, along with other famous Muppets like Elmo, Big Bird, Bert, Ernie, and Cookie Monster.
You'll find all of these famous characters below. Many are furry or fuzzy. Others have smooth felt skin. One is covered with "U" shaped feathers. Simple steps will teach you how to draw each one in turn. What adventures will you take them on?
Did you know? Jim Henson's Creature Workshop also created muppets for other movies and shows. Some of the aliens in Star Wars, for example, were actually muppets!
You can become a puppet wrangler - that's what muppet puppeteers are called - when you learn how to draw these famous muppets from both The Muppet Show and Sesame Street.
All you will need is a pencil and a sheet of paper. You may also want to have your crayons or colored pencils handy, as the muppets come in bright and varied colors.
Miss Piggy is glamorous with styled hair, fancy clothes, a pearl necklace, and makeup. Can you capture the dreamy look in her eye as you complete this sketch? Don't forget to draw her beloved "Kermie," listed above.
