My kids and I love to play art games and we’ve been playing more than usual lately.
Art games are fun, obviously, but they are also easy to fit in whenever and wherever.
So while we’ve been unpacking from the recent move or waiting for food at restaurants, we’ve been playing a lot of them.
Here are a few of our favorite kids’ art games as well as a few that I found around the internet that look worth a try.
5 Kids Art Games for Fun and Creativity
These first five are our faves…
Take turns adding to a collaborative drawing. This is one of our favorite art games for restaurants and waiting rooms.
We also do a version of this game with mandalas.
Players use a quick scribble as a drawing prompt. Does the scribble remind you of a duck, a face, a castle? This is our other favorite drawing game for restaurants and waiting rooms.
People take turns drawing sections of a human body, passing the covered drawing to the next person, and adding to the next drawing. A great game for a group of family and friends that works well with mixed ages.
A fun, interactive drawing activity for kids and families. Simon says, “draw circles,” and the artists each draw circles. Simon also says things like, “trade pastels,” “draw dots,” and “draw a face.”
We also play a version of this with autumn leaves in the fall.
A way to connect one-on-one with a child and also a low-key way to encourage his or her drawing.
