A six-year-old girl has drawn portraits of her mum that compare what she looks like first thing in the morning to when she goes out. 

The user, whose name is private, uploaded the images on IMGUR saying, "My friend's six-year-old daughter drew this at school..."

The school activity sheet asks students to draw "what mum looks like in the morning" and "what mum looks like when she is going out."

The differences between the two pictures are hilarious and real.

The activity, which has been viewed over 200,000 times, has been described by some as "strange".

"Those are very strange questions to ask a kid about their parent," said one user.

Another said, "I find the whole concept creepy. I was never asked as a child to draw what my mum looked like getting out of bed or anything else for that matter."

Others found it hard to believe the images were drawn by a six-year-old.

One said: "I'm having a lot of trouble believing this is her friend's daughter's drawing."
