Paper Plate Picture Game

This is an oldie, but a goodie!  You will need cheap, white paper plates and a pencil for each person. 


A)  Have everyone put the paper plate upside down on their head:


B)  Instruct them step-by-step to draw certain things and mix up the order.

Note:  Lift the pencil off the plate between each step (or to make it even harder, put your hand down by your side after each instruction).

Example: Let's draw a pumpkin.

"Draw a large circle."  (lift pencil)
"Draw a triangle for each eye."  (lift pencil)
"Draw a circle for a nose."  (lift pencil)
"Draw a stem on your pumpkin."  (lift pencil)
"Draw a pumpkin mouth with two teeth."

We usually have a contest to see who has the best drawing...today's winner:



Here's another one...do you recognize Frank N. Stein?


How about Kit E. Cat?


This works well for every holiday season...
draw Santa at Christmas time or a bunny for Easter.

Let me know if you try this one!
