Drawing Prompts for Kids: Sketches to Encourage Creative Thinking

When students are asked to complete drawing prompts for kids, all kinds of creative solutions are possible. Now you can download a sample page from my new ebook for free!

If you search for “Drawing prompts for kids”, you might end up with some well-meaning lists of things for them to draw. That’s fine, but if they need some inspiration, chances are that words alone are not going to do the trick.

Why not tap into the visual side of their brain instead, and give them some images to work with? After all, it’s the images that might remind them of something, that ends up being something else, which they might never have drawn on their own on a blank sheet of paper.

My new ebook offers fifty new images to work with, and I’m happy to sample one of my favorite pages below. Try it out to see what kind of results you get, and then check out my ebook if you think it might help your students think a little more “outside of the box.” It never hurts to mix things up a bit when it comes to learning how to draw.
