- Pencils or markers
- Divide the kids into pairs. Each pair should consist of two children sitting back-to-back.
- Provide each pair with a piece of paper and pencils or markers.
- Explain the rules of the game: One person from each pair will be the “describer” while the other will be the “drawer.”
- The describer will select an object or image from a predetermined set of options. They should keep their chosen object a secret from their partner.
- Without turning around or looking at the paper, the describer will verbally guide their partner in drawing the chosen object on the paper.
- The drawer will listen attentively to the instructions provided by the describer and try their best to replicate the object on the paper.
- The game continues for a set amount of time, such as 3-5 minutes, or until both partners feel satisfied with their drawing.
- Once the time is up, the pairs can turn around and compare their drawings with the original object or image.
- Encourage the kids to share and discuss their drawings with each other, highlighting the similarities and differences between their interpretations.
- Repeat the game with new pairs and different objects or images to keep the excitement going.
- Provide a variety of objects or images for the describers to choose from, such as animals, everyday objects, or abstract shapes.
- Encourage the kids to use descriptive language, such as shapes, sizes, and specific details, to guide their partners in drawing the object.
- Emphasize the importance of clear communication and active listening during the game.
- Celebrate the creativity and uniqueness of each drawing, focusing on the fun and enjoyment rather than perfection.
