This is what Maia and I do when we are sitting at the bakery/coffee shop on the weekend waiting for our breakfast—we draw back and forth in the notebook I always carry in my bag.
Harry is probably reading the New York Times, Daphne is playing in the toy corner, and I’m half writing my notes and to-do lists and half drawing with Maia.
Update :: Check out the video at the end of the post of back-and-forth drawing in action…
A Back-and-Forth Drawing Game for Kids
One of us starts the drawing and then we just take turns adding elements back and forth.
Or, as in the drawing above, I start it (with the head circle) and Maia starts drawing and just doesn’t stop.
Other times we both contribute about evenly to the drawings. We add dialogue and thought bubbles for an added element of fun and interaction.
And tic tac toe is a regular waiting game for us, with or without the drawings (as you can see throughout these pages…).

Do you play drawing games with your kids? If so, I’d love to hear about them! I’m always looking for new drawing game ideas…
P.S. In case you are wondering, I finished the first draft of the winter crafts ebook over the weekend (yay!) and have taken down most of the Christmas decorations. We’re back to full-on autumn and Halloween here!
