Pick and Draw Game: Review and Giveaway!
Pick and Draw is an AWESOME drawing game created by freelance illustrator Rich Davis. I first heard about the game during a giveaway from another homeschool blog I follow, and while I did not win that giveaway, I was thrilled when Rich sent me a complimentary set to review on my blog, as well as another to giveaway for free to a lucky reader!!
Here is how it works: the kids pick a feature from the deck of cards to draw their own cartoon character. First a face, then eyes, a nose, mouth and hair. When they are drawing one thing at a time it becomes simple for even the youngest child to create a one-of-a-kind cartoon character. When they're done, they draw from the deck again to create another totally unique character all on their own.
I brought this to our homeschool co-op for art time with the kids and they ALL loved it! Students ages 4 to 9 all had a blast as I passed out different faces, eyes, etc. (and that age range could reach a lot further, too!) Each child delighted in seeing the outcome of theirs and their friends'! They wanted to do it again and again, excited to see what card they'd be dealt next.
My kindergartner asked to do it later when we got home and also for over an hour the following day. "I really love this game mom," she told me. "It makes me feel like a really good artist and I love to draw!"
Super cool stuff!
