Drawing & Mark Making on It’s Playtime!

Fine MotorAll Ages4 Comments

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!

(above, clockwise from top-left)

  • 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!
