This is an easy game you can take anywhere. It’s great for getting the kids to use their imaginations and creativity when drawing.


  • 1 cup
  • 2 pieces of paper
  • scissors and textas


  1. Take one blank piece of paper and cut it into strips.
    Write words on each strip and place them in the cup.
    Have your child pick a piece of paper out of the cup - whatever word they have they draw it on the second piece of paper.

Notes... This game can also be very educational. Use your child's spelling/reading words for the week and they're doing homework without realising it!
