Scribble drawings

March 27 is National Scribble Day — a day to celebrate creativity through scribbling! Spending time together making art is a great way to bond with friends and family and can give you a break from the virtual world. Drawing is known to have benefits, such as improved motor skills and creative problem solving. It’s also good for your mental health. In this project, work with a partner to get your creativity flowing.



Supplies
  • Pencil
  • Markers or other coloring tools
  • Paper


Instructions

Step 1: To start, each person should close their eyes and draw a quick scribble on a sheet of paper, use broad movements so the scribble isn’t too tiny.

Step 2: Trade paper with your partner and use their scribble to create a drawing of your own. Maybe it looks like an animal or a place, maybe it’s nothing in particular.

Step 3: Draw multiple scribbles on one page and continue trading back and forth, or start a new drawing each time. The more complicated the line, the tricker this becomes. Try all different shapes and sizes of scribbles to see how they turn out. Who knows what you’ll create together!
