The Draw My Picture Game

The Draw My Picture Game

Materials:
  • Pencils or crayons
  • White paper(full sized or cut in half)
  • Clipboards
  • Ears (Available on the heads of most children though not always used)
Directions:
Have each player partner up with another player. Give each person a piece of paper, a writing utensil, and a clipboard. Tell the players to sit back-to-back with their partners. Explain that one person (the Artist) will draw a picture using only simple shapes and lines. The other player (the Apprentice) cannot look while he is doing it. When the Artist is done, he must give the Apprentice verbal directions on how to draw his picture. The Artist may not look at the Apprentice’s work while he is drawing. When the Apprentice is finished, the two players compare their drawings. They can then switch roles and play again.

Example

Here’s your chance to try The Draw My Picture Game. Grab a piece of paper and a pencil and follow the directions below.
First, your paper should be situated vertically on your desk.
  1. Draw a medium-sized circle in the middle of your paper.
  2. Draw a medium-sized square below the circle but have the top of it touch the bottom of the circle.
  3. Draw a medium-sized heart in the square.
  4. Draw two smaller rectangles, one on each side of the square. They should go the wide way not the tall way and they should touch the sides of the square. Also, the top of each rectangle should line up with the top of the square.
  5. Draw a medium-sized triangle above the circle. The bottom of the triangle should touch the top of the circle.
  6. Draw three small stars anywhere inside the triangle.
  7. Draw a small triangle in the center of the medium-sized circle.
  8. Draw an arc which curves up below the small triangle.
  9. Draw two small circles above the small triangle, one slightly to the right and one slightly to the left.
