Pick and Draw Game awarded

December 27, 2013


Pick and Draw Game was awarded  by The National Parenting Center with the high honor of their “Seal of Approval”.  This is highly sought after by those who make games of all kinds and it came after 8 weeks of rigorous testing criteria and different testing groups.  I give thanks to the Lord for this and wish you would pass the word onto others so that they can purchase and use the game with their children…whether parents or educators or occupational therapists or homeschoolers or mission workers.  If you click the Pick and Draw game icon above (right), you can easily purchase a game at our online store and your kids will be drawing some great cartoons in no time!

Drawing Car #1…things that go zoom!

April 29, 2012

Thanks all of you who commented on what  to draw…I heard you.  So let’s start with a car…and put a couple of doodle bugs inside it.  Follow along with the steps I’ll show you.   Here we go….zoom! zoom!

Way to go with your drawing!  You can build a whole scene now around your doodle bugs in a car…maybe they are in a big city or maybe they are driving down a country road with a farm in the background or maybe they are driving next to the ocean or maybe they are driving on the moon?!  You get to decide and make the picture the way you want.

Let me show you one more thing….the picture below shows the same car, but I did something different to make it look like it’s going faster…..maybe you want to draw your car again on another piece of paper and try it like I’ve drawn it below!  Have fun drawing!

You’re sooooooo creative!

Draw Ploosh the doodle bug

March 13, 2012

Glad you could join me today to draw!  We’re drawing Ploosh the doodle bug.  He’ll help us work on your rounded lines

and shapes.  The big curly Q lines in the wings are fun to make.  So, watch me draw Ploosh first and then follow me

in the steps below the video.  When you get Ploosh finished, maybe you will want to make another Ploosh but decorate

his wings in a different way…any way you like!

Draw a Thanksgiving Turkey!

November 16, 2011

HAPPY THANKSGIVING everyone!  What a wonderful time of year!  This holiday is a great reminder to practise being thankful all the days of the year.  Today we will draw a turkey together. I would advise using a pencil (with an eraser) and not a pen.  I’m not going to write very much…instead,  I’ll let the photos show you step by step.

By the way, if you want to download the turkey we are drawing today and make copies to let kids color them at Thanksgiving (or whenever), you can find it here.  The file is in the folder called, Thanksgiving Turkey coloring.  It’s even got a great Bible verse on it to help you remember why we give thanks.  After you color it, why not have it laminated and use it as a placemat during this season!  And you can make your own border design around the picture…I left you room to be creative.  Have fun!  (be sure and tell others about this little project!)  Here is what the picture looks like..

Ok, let’s get to drawing our turkey!  You will need to turn your paper sideways to start….(click on the photo to see it larger because the quality of the photos is poor…sorry!)

After you finish your turkey picture with pencil and have it just like you want it, you could take a sharpie or a black pen and go over your lines…then color it.

And I will close this post by saying, “I’m thankful that you like to draw!”.
