Since I’m so beyond proud and excited about Henry making his first real drawing with sidewalk chalk, I’m going to keep celebrating it with some drawings I found on It’s Playtime last week.
A few ways to get the kids excited to draw and even write stories! I love these ideas from these creative bloggers!

- Draw yourself as your favorite character, like Crystal & Co. did for Diary of a Whimpy Kid.
- Cheerios & Lattes has a “Play to Write, Write to Read” series on the beginning stages of writing. Love her ideas!
- Copy a drawing by describing it in words, without seeing it, from NurtureStore. Can you do it?
- Draw pictures of what they observe. Happy Little Messes makes copies and use them for coloring!
