I gave a  quick lesson on how to draw a parrot ( ).  Look what a terrific job the third grade did.



  • Scrap paper to practice drawing
  • White construction paper
  • Pencil and eraser
  • Crayons
  • Colored chalk
  • Black Sharpie
  • Kleenex
  • Hairspray


  1. On the scrap paper, the students followed my lead as I showed them how to draw a parrot.
  2. On the white construction paper, draw a large parrot.
  3. Draw a tree with a  branch for him to stand on, and add leaves and flowers to the branch.  Add a sun with rays.
  4. Brightly color the parrot, tree, leaves, flowers, and the sun.  Outline everything with the black Sharpie
  5. With the side of a piece of blue, violet, pink, and/or  yellow chalk,  wipe across the sky —to make a tropical sky.
  6. Wipe the chalk dust off with a Kleenex.  Lightly spray with hairspray to set the chalk.
