My kids love to draw. They love sitting down and filling a page with ideas and imaginings.
And I love that my kids love to draw because it is an easy, low mess, quiet activity that often saves me from losing my mind!
So I’ve taken advantage of those two things and I’ve made a super easy, super fun, drawing challenge game!
The game is simple… print out the set of drawing challenge cards, cut them out, and give each kid a pile of cards, face down.
Now turn over the top card in your pile and draw whatever it says!
So simple, but so fun!
If you want to add an extra edge to the game set a time… you have two minutes to draw whatever it says on the card… go!
There are 16 drawing challenge cards in the set, and 8 blank cards so you can add your own ideas.
This printable is an A4 sized pdf file, you will need a pdf reader such as adobe acrobat to open it. If you are printing on US ‘letter sized’ paper be sure to select ‘fit’ or ‘shrink to fit’ from your printer options.
Please remember that the printables at picklebums.com are for personal use only, you may not sell, share, or link directly to these files.
Not only can drawing buy you some peace and engage your kids, but if you happen to pull the ‘design your dream car’ card out of the pile then your drawing could win you a Samsung Galaxy S2 tablet or a trip to Japan!
This is the tenth year of Toyota’s Dream Car Art Competition and kids from all over the world can enter.
Each country holds their own contest with three winners from each age category – under 8 years old, 8-11 years old, and 12-15 years old. These entries are then sent to Toyota Japan and judged in the ‘World Contest’.
If you are one of the 9 Australian winners you’ll win a Samsung Galaxy S2 tablet, and if an Australian wins the ‘World Contest’, they will be flown to Japan for an award ceremony and a cultural experience!
To enter simply draw your dream car, use your imagination and be as creative and crazy as you like!
Morgan’s dream car (pictured above) is called the ‘Fireball’ and has fire that comes out the back, and a rocket booster, and an automatic parachute sprinkler system in case he accidentally causes a bush fire!
Entries close March 7th so get drawing now!
For more details and to download the entry form visit the Toyota Dream Car Art Competition page.
