What we will be doing:

In this video we will be teaching children how to draw a Yeti!! Also known as the Abominable snowman, Sasquatch and Bigfoot.

We will be working in pencil and sketching an outline for the head, body and hair, then adding some water based paints to add colour.

What you will need:

  • Paper
  • Drawing pencil
  • Eraser
  • Pencil sharpener ( or a sharp pencil!)
  • To colour:
    • Water based paints, or felt tips or colouring pencils

Possible background reading:

  • Yeti in the freezer ( Eric B Thomasma)
  • Spaghetti with the Yeti ( Charlotte and Allan Gullain)


  • Abominable
  • Smallfoot
  • The Son of Bigfoot.

What else you could do after this painting:
Think about and draw where your Yeti lives, what to do they eat? Do they live alone? and if not maybe you could draw some of their friends and family.
