|Drawing the Powder Tower in Prague, September 2011|
A simple item but such a very good one for travelers of all ages. Perfect for drawing famous monuments, sketching favorite pieces of art, family drawing sessions while waiting for trains, games of tic tac toe and hangman while waiting for dinner, and documenting highlights of a trip. Sketchbooks are always handy and they are usually easy to find, especially in museum gift shops and local bookstores. How do you use your sketchbooks?
Here are a few of our favorite family drawing games:
- Add to the scribble:
One person starts with a scribble and passes the sketchbook to the next person to add onto the scribble until a complete drawing emerges.
Take turns picking a theme that everyone draws at the same time (monsters, robots, silly vehicles, etc).
- Dot to Dot:
Make your own dot-to-dot drawings and mazes for each other.
- Funny Faces:Start with ovals and create a colorful cast of characters by adding unique features to each face.
