It’s December and the holiday season is approaching. Beat boredom and make memories with your kids at the same time with these Christmas Drawing Prompts.
What’s Included in the Christmas Drawing Prompts?
This printable pack of free drawing prompts includes six holiday themed backgrounds:
- Draw with Me in the Nativity Stable
- Draw with Me in Santa’s Workshop
- Draw with Me on Santa’s Sleigh
- Draw with Me on Christmas Eve
- Draw with Me at Christmas Dinner
- Draw with Me at the Gingerbread House
As you make a Christmas drawing together, you can add holiday things or even silly things!
Just like with writing, it can be hard to stare at a blank piece of paper. These drawing prompts will spark tons of ideas. For example, at Santa’s Workshop, you could draw gifts in Santa’s sack, a teddy bear or doll on the shelf, and an elf building a toy truck at the table.
In case you have a kid who claims, “I don’t how to draw it!” or if you need a few drawing ideas to get started, a page of Christmas drawing ideas has also been included.
The drawing ideas page consists of several simple outlines for lots of Christmas items: ornaments, a gift, a cookie, gingerbread man, gingerbread house, Christmas dinner foods, Santa’s face, a snowman, a reindeer, and more.
How to Play the Roll to Draw Christmas Game
You aren’t required to turn this into a game, but you can if you and your student are up for an extra dose of fun!
If you want to turn the Christmas drawing prompts into a game, you will need the following:
- One drawing prompt background
- Two pencils
- One dice
Alternatively, if you want to reuse the board, you could put the background page into a dry erase pocket and use dry erase markers.
You can use these rules to play the game, or you can invent your own rules.
The first player rolls the dice. The number indicates the number of strokes the player gets to put on the paper. A stroke counts as one line (the pencil not being picked up).
The first player will probably have to stop before the intended object is drawn. This is where it gets fun.
The next player rolls the dice. The second player can choose to add to the previous player’s drawing (possibly taking it in a different direction!), or the player can start a new object. Don’t forget to encourage your game partner to add details throughout the drawing process.
As with any collaborative project, this can get challenging and frustrating or even silly; you may want to be prepared to chat with your student about the emotions that can come from having to switch gears.
The roll to draw game is a fantastic and fun exercise in flexibility.
Players decide together when to finish the game. Show off your work of art by displaying it on the fridge for other family members to see!
