Form The Tray
First, draw the shape of the wheelbarrow’s tray as shown.
Attach The Handles
Form thin diagonal rods attached to the tray to draw the handles of the wheelbarrow. Then, add small grips at the end of the handles.
Outline The Wheel
Now, draw a bumpy circular shape to form the wheel.
Add The Rim
Next, draw a smaller circle inside the wheel to outline the rim.

Draw the thin wavy shape of the wheelbarrow’s legs below the tray. Make sure to erase the parts of the wheel that overlap with the formed legs.
