What’s Halloween without Frankenstein? Well how about a younger, more kid-like, Frankenstein? Today we’re learning how to draw a cartoon Frankenstein.

For this activity, like many of our others, you’ll need a marker, paper and oil pastels. Of course, you can use crayons or markers instead.

How To Draw Frankenstein Step By Step

1. Draw a cup shape for his head, flat on the top and round on the bottom. Then draw a “u” for his body.

2. Next draw a scary face. I drew his eyes really small, and a jellybean shape for his mouth. Make sure to add a lot of teeth.

            Oh my gosh! Every single one of them is awesome. I love the color and electricity they each added too. That seriously looks so fun, and they did such a great job. Would you mind if I posted this on our Facebook page today? I’d also like to update this post to feature your post, if that’s ok?
