I did a review awhile back for the Pick and Draw card game – an art lesson and card game in one. (You can visit that post by searching Pick and Draw in my search box)
Here is a portion of my review:
It’s a simple game that only requires paper and pencil. It is a wholesome family game that flourishes creativity. It can be played alone or with a group. It uses basic shapes so it’s easy enough for little kids but still enjoyable for older children and adults.
To play: pick a card from each category- face, eyes, nose, mouth, and hair – and draw your own cartoon. The parts can be drawn large or small and in any position on the face making each person’s character very unique. Comparing our cartoons was amusing!
Rich Davis, the creator of Pick and Draw, now offers The Big Book of Pick and Draw Activities. This book is a compilation of activities for many more ways to enjoy the Pick and Draw card game.
The Big Book of Pick and Draw Activities is a fun collection of activities that different professionals who work with children have found effective. These 138 pages are packed with great insight and step by step instruction that will be very helpful. And you’ll enjoy thumbing through the pages just because there are over 200 fun illustrations!
There is something for homeschool parents, special needs teachers, elementary ed teachers (helps meet common core curriculum); art educators; creative writing teachers; children’s autism spectrum helpers; children’s grief counselors; christian missionaries; sunday school teachers and youth group leaders.
Each chapter is an activity idea and contains a material list and step-by-step instructions. “Eleven Pick and Draw Heart Messages” is a chapter that can be used for Sunday school, mission trips, vacation bible school, children’s outreach and youth groups. It has eleven approaches to the game that share God with the drawer/player. Love this!
I received The Big Book of Pick and Draw Activities to help facilitate the writing of an honest review. A positive review is not guaranteed, and all opinions are my own. No other compensation was received.
