    Want to draw everyone's cute, loveable, and furry pal, Grover? Use these tips from a real Sesame Street artist to learn how.

    To draw Grover, you will need:
  • Construction paper or computer paper
  • Pencil
  • Markers, colored pencils, or crayons

Get a Head

To start drawing Grover, hold your paper the long (landscape) way. In the middle of the page, draw a large circle. Divide the circle in half vertically with a dotted line. Draw another dotted line to divide the circle in half horizontally (crossing lines at the center). Now, halfway between the horizontal line and the top of the oval, draw a second horizontal line. These lines will be your reference for placing Grover's eyes, nose, and mouth. You will erase all of these guidelines later, so keep them light!

Oh Say Can You See

Draw two ovals, slightly angled, for Grover's eyes. To add pupils, draw a small circle inside each oval. The top horizontal dotted line should cut directly through both the eyes and the pupils.

The Nose Knows

In the middle of Grover's face, slightly below the eyes, draw a large circle. Congratulations! You just gave Grover a nose!

Do the Monster Mouth

Next, you'll create the top of Grover's mouth. Draw a wide, "furry" arc from one side of your circle to the other. Each end of the upturned arc should land slightly above the lower of the two dotted horizontals. The curve of the arc will overlap slightly with Grover's nose.

Smile Big

To finish Grover's mouth, draw a deep, wide "U," starting at one side of the upper lip and ending at the other. Draw another "U" inside of this one. Now that's an irresistible smile!

Make a Furry Friend

Give Grover wisps of fur around the edges of his head.

The Finishing Touches

Time to clean up your drawing! Erase the overlaps, the dotted lines you drew in the beginning, and the original circle-shape. Add shading to the pupils and mouth.

Singing the Blues

Give your adorable pal some color! Use crayons, markers or colored pencil to give Grover his trademark blue hue.
