My daughter is an artist and a creative thinker, but every now and then she needs a little boost to get her imagination flowing. Perhaps you can relate to a recent conversation we've had.
Child: Hey, Mom! What should I draw?
Me: I don't know. A flower? An animal? School?
Me: Then I'm sure you'll think of something.
Conclusion: Child walks away without drawing anything.
If you've found yourself in the same situation, you know that it can be quite frustrating. That's why we've created a simple roll-a-picture worksheet to help with brainstorming your own silly scenarios.
Here's how to use our roll-a-picture worksheet
- Print out our Roll-A-Picture: Summer Fun Worksheet. It's free!
- Roll a die 4 times to decide a character, an activity, a setting, and a specific time.
- Get to drawing!
- Optional: Roll again to create a whole different scenario.
Want to practice writing instead? This is also a great way to come up with creative story prompts!
With a little guidance from our roll-a-picture worksheet, the conversations with my child are a bit different now:
Child: Hey, Mom! What should I draw?"
Me: How about a pirate who's eating ice cream in our backyard on a windy day?
Child: Okay. I like that idea.
Conclusion: Child has fun creating a masterpiece!
