Blackboard creative drawing prompts

This has become a familiar scene in our home – my three children drawing on the blackboard:

To mix it up, I have been leaving some creative drawing prompts on our blackboard, which have served the purpose of acting as an invitation to encourage creative thinking.

I have been using some of the staples from our craft cupboard – doilies and Washi tape – to prepare these creative drawing prompts.

One set of drawing prompts involved placing some doilies on the blackboard and then using them as a stencil – I coloured over them with chalk. For an additional drawing prompt, I used Washi tape to create a diamond in the middle of the blackboard:

Each of my children chose a  prompt to inspire a picture.

Miss Four chose the circle doily pattern and created “a person with spiky hair and a belly button”:

Master Five chose the diamond Washi tape shape because he wanted to incorporate this into a robot.

Miss Seven was quick to turn two doily heart patterns into a butterfly:

Another set of creative drawing prompts – Washi tape shapes. These make for fun and inspiring drawing prompts.

Miss Four used the Washi tape triangle shape to draw “Mummy and me dancing around the tepee”:

Master Five drew a castle with a King and Queen. This was inspired from the red and white spotty square Washi tape shape.

Miss Seven was inspired by the zig zag Washi tape shape to draw a snake in the grass:

These creative drawing prompts are quick and easy to set up and a whole lot of fun to create with.
