Creative Drawing

Creative Drawing is a game where one player begins by drawing something on the paper and passing it to the next person who can add to it. This indoor game is quite fun in large groups because it’s exciting to see what other players have added to the drawing by the time the paper gets back to you.

How to play Creative Drawing?

In this game, a child has to start a drawing on a paper and then pass it on to the next person who will add an extra element.
Prepare white paper and coloured markers or pencils in advance. Make 1 or more groups depending on the number of children. The children decide on a drawing that they will make together. Each child will then choose to draw a line or a part of the drawing as they wish. For example, if the children decide to make a man, then the first child will draw the face, the second the eyes, the third the hair, the fourth the mouth and so on. Each child takes the color they like and makes a simple element of the drawing. In the end, this collective drawing is often very original!

The children can agree on the drawing. Otherwise, it is often simpler for the adult to choose for them. Even better, prepare on small papers your ideas of words to draw, and the children will draw at random…

To keep everyone occupied, give each person a sheet of paper, so multiple drawings will be passed around the group, simultaneously.
