Get ready for an engaging game with these Summer Drawing Prompts. You’ll create fun memories as you play this game with your kids.
What’s Included in the Summer Drawing Prompts?
This printable pack of Summer Drawing Prompts includes five printable backgrounds:
- Draw with Me at the Beach
- Draw with Me by the Pond
- Draw with Me at the Pool
- Draw with Me in the Backyard
- Draw with Me at the Park
You can add realistic things, funny things, or even out of place things!
Just like with writing, it can be hard to stare at a blank piece of paper. These drawing prompts will spark ideas for things to draw at the beach, the pool, the pond, the park, and in the backyard.
In case you have a kid who claims, “I don’t know what to draw!” or if you need a few drawing ideas to get started, a page of summer themed drawing ideas has also been included.
The drawing ideas page consists of several simple outlines for summer themed objects: a fish, crab, ladybug, frogs, a birdhouse, an umbrella, ice cream treats, birds, sunglasses, and more.
How to Play the Roll to Draw Game
If you want to turn this summer drawing activity into a game, you will need the following:
- One drawing prompt background page
- 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.
As with any collaborative project, this can get tricky 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.
