Maybe your fairy lives in the forest or hides in the grass. This guide shows you how to draw an earth fairy, but you could also draw an air, fire or water fairy. Afterward, you'll outline and color your cartoon fairy to make them come to life.

This easy cartoon fairy has a magic wand that casts spells or grants wishes. If your cartoon fairy gave you a wish, what would you wish for? That's what you could write about after you complete your drawing. You could also draw comics with your imaginative character.

Start with a pencil sketch so you can erase any mistakes. Afterward, outline the drawing with a black pen or marker. Use crayons, colored pencils, markers or paint to color your cartoon fairy. If you want to challenge yourself, draw a background or add sparkles coming out of the wand.
