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.


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!

  • I’d enjoy playing this one with the kids, and it would work for many ages as well.


  • Yes, letting the kids make up the rules or things to draw would be very motivating!


  • I found a rolled up piece of cardboard in a cupboard the other day. Had a game on it created by my son. Quite a few days spent playing that. Son loved it because he made up the rules, that usually changed daily lol


  • This is a nice simple idea – thanks.


  • What a great game. I cant wait to play it with my little ones.


  • This is a great game for the coffee shop too! Just make sure you have a pen and a notebook in your bag at all times and the kids will be amused


  • I love how simple this game is but it is so clever. Great idea


  • I used to play a Mr Squiggle game with my kids. Where one would do a Squiggle and another had to make it into something. It was a lot of fun trying to work out what the end picture was


  • It will be great to see all their drawings

    • would be great to guess what it is too


  • Great idea. Kids have fun making as well as playing the game. Much better than store bought in my opinion.


  • Using kids spelling/reading words for that week is a brilliant idea.


  • A very creative idea for the little ones,thanks!


  • So much fun we love to draw but never can agree on what. Awesome idea thankyou. This would be great in the car too.


  • A great, fun game to inspire creativity and expand educational learning; thanks for sharing.


  • Also a great game to take traveling (or if you forgot to pack a game!)
