Get ready for an engaging game with these Winter Drawing Prompts.
This drawing game is perfect to play with your kids during the Christmas and New Year holidays, winter break, or any other time you want to make some memories and have fun together.
What’s Included in the Winter Drawing Prompts?
This printable pack of Winter Drawing Prompts includes six different background pages:
- Draw with Me in the Arctic
- Draw with Me at the Ice Rink
- Draw with Me Inside a Snow Globe
- Draw with Me Building in the Snow
- Draw with Me in a Cozy Cabin
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 such as polar animals, people ice skating, a fire in the fireplace, someone building a snowman, or a snow fort.
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 winter drawing ideas has also been included.
The drawing ideas page consists of several simple outlines for various winter themed items: snow topped mountains, a snow fort, mittens, a bear fishing, an ice skating hedgehog, a hat, icicles, a melted snowman, a winter tree, a snow shovel, a sled, an igloo, a fire, parts of a snowman, and more.
How to Play the Roll to Draw Game
If you want to turn this drawing challenge 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.
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.
If desired, keep all of your roll to draw pages in a binder so you can look back through them and remember the fun you had together.
