OK, Pass the drawings to the next person!
Here’s a quick art game that works with varied ages. Get out your coloring supplies, paper and a timer and give it a try.
- Give each person a piece of paper
- I gave us each a particular color for the fun of being able to see who drew what.
- Set the timer (we tried 30 seconds at first, but one minute was better)
- Pass the pages once the timer dings.
James (6) and I could have done this for a longer time, Leland (3) had fun for a three rounds and then was done. I’m so curious to do some more of this type of art with my kids. Collaborative play-doh pieces? Pass along painting? Ooh- what about starting out with a printed grid or hexagons? I wonder what my kids would think of that…
