We’re on a blackboard roll here (recently we have enjoyed a blackboard collage experience, doily and washi tape creative drawing prompts on the blackboard, and last, but not least, creating with sponge stamps on a chalk covered backboard.)
Our latest blackboard creative drawing prompt: doors! The aim of this was to imagine and then draw what could be behind the door.
My children each selected some craft resources to add to their doors. Master Six decided on a “party door” and wanted balloons around his door. Miss Four collected some cardboard tubes from our stash of recycled supplies and also decided she would like some colourful pipe cleaners included on her door. Miss Eight wanted a door with a vine and flowers.
These doors ended up being pretty elaborate, but the beauty of this is that the doors can be plain. It’s all about using your imagination to come up with a scene for what you could find when the door is opened.
Using a door as a drawing prompt has been a favourite with my children for some time (some of our ideas for this are featured at the end of the post) , however, up until now we had never done this activity on the blackboard.
These doors were a wonderful source of inspiration!
Miss Eight’s drawing:
Master Six drew a clown ready to entertain at a party!
Miss Four drew a picture of herself holding balloons while dancing in streamers.
Miss Four also drew another picture of herself holding flowers.
Some of our other drawing prompts that have used this idea of drawing what’s behind the door include:
