You know we love to eat snow cones and talk about snow cones, but have you ever wondered how to draw a snow cone? Some of us are a little more artistically challenged than others (You still draw stick figures for people and animals, too? Yeah, me too!). But with a little guidance and practice, drawing a snow cone isn’t all that hard.

  • Step 1: Start with a large curve at the top, almost half a circle. This is the cool, refreshing dome of ice.
  • Step 2: Connect both sides of the curve to finish off the ice (which is also the top edge of the cup).
  • Step 3: Move your pen/pencil/crayon/marker/other drawing utensil below the center of your snow cone ice to the approximate location of where you want the base/point of your snow cone cup to be. Mark this point with a small dot.
  • Step 4: Connect one corner of the ice/cup top to your point using a diagonal straight line.
  • Step 5: Now connect the other corner to the point, completing your snow cone cup.
  • Step 6: Color the ice part of the snow cone to represent your favorite flavors. Add as many flavors and colors as you want!

For all you visual learners out there, here is a quick video we've put together that shows you how easy it is to draw a snow cone.

So, the next time you’re looking for a fun activity to do with your kids, a great idea would be to all learn to draw your own snow cones -- coloring each of yours with your favorite flavors and colors. Then, once you have completed your drawings, bring them to life by making those snow cones with your own shaved ice machine and premium shaved ice syrups! Hawaiian Shaved Ice can provide you with everything you need to make your own shaved ice and snow cones at home. This is a great activity for a rainy summer day or even for a cold winter day when you are stuck inside craving a sweet treat!

Once you master how to draw a snow cone, feel free to share your illustrations with us on Facebook or email us at! Who knows? Maybe we’ll write a follow up post and highlight some of our favorite snow cone drawings!
