Please, never be shy and always wave and say hello when you see me! Even though hedgehogs are naturally solitary animals, I am a friendly one. I am Spikey and I would love to say hello to you too. Just stand back a little, say hello, and I’ll sniff a hello back.

To make sure you recognise me, try to draw me first. Here is how:


First, we draw my nose.

draw 1

Second, we draw my muzzle.

draw 2

Third, we add my right eye and ear.

draw 3

Fourth, we draw the first row of spines behind my head.

draw 4

Fifth, we add the row of spines along my back.

draw 5

Sixth, we fill in the spines over the rest of my body.

draw 6

Finally, we add my legs and feet. As the hedgehog you are drawing is me, Spikey, don’t forget to make my back-left leg a little shorter than the others!

draw 7

And now that you know my shape, can you also colour me correctly? You can colour in all of my friends too!
