Pass the Drawings

by Alissa Marquess on May 10, 2011


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.

Drawing GameQuick, draw!

  • 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)
  • Draw!
  • 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…

I don't know if it's just me or if everyone else encountering issues with your site. It appears as though some of the written text on your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a problem with my browser because I've had this happen before. Thanks


So cute! I’d love it if you shared this with the Fun Family Crafts audience. FFC is similar to Craftgawker but it only features kid friendly tutorials. Looking forward to seeing what fun crafts you submit!


My 6 year olds loved this game. Thanks for sharing it.


great idea! My 7 year olds would love this... though like yours, I think the three year old wouldn't last long! LOL

I haven't had an issue from anyone else, so perhaps it is your browser. Thanks.
