Drawing games

My family and I use drawing as a form of shared relaxation and celebration… a way to play together when life is a little less hectic.

After Christmas dinner shared with some dear friends we played this collaborative drawing game: Each person writes a descriptive sentence at the top of a sheet, then passes it to the next person, who illustrates the phrase. The first descriptive sentence is covered over, so the third person can only see the illustration, which they describe in a sentence. They cover up the drawing and pass their descriptive sentence to the next person who illustrates it, and so on until the page is filled.
