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.
The shapes above inspired these drawings:
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.
