How old was your child when he or she could draw a person?

I just mean a basic head with a face and legs and arms. What's the typical age for drawing things that look more or less like what are supposed to?

  • A happy face head with arms and leg (no body) he could do at age 3, or maybe just two - almost 3. He added a body by almost 4.

  • Around 3-4 for my older 3 kids.  My youngest daughter started at about 2 1/2.  She shocked me one day when she drew me a person with a head, eyes, mouth, arms and legs.  She was also coloring in the lines at 2 1/2.  She's 4 1/2 now and draws the cutest pictures.

  • My daughter started drawing people without faces at about 3. She started giving them eyes and faces at about 3 1/2 or so.
