Back-2-Back Game // Drawing Game for Kids

Sometimes the most fun about art camp is making new friends, and this drawing game for kids was definitely a highlight of our week!  We had ten minutes on the last day of camp last week, so we partnered kids up, attached a piece of paper to the back of their shirts, and sent them off to draw a quick portrait of their partner.

I knew it would be fun for the kids doing the drawing, but we couldn’t have guessed how much fun it would be for the kids whose portraits were being drawn!  It must be a little like getting your caricature drawn be a cartoonist at the state fair… the suspense…the anticipation!  They took it very seriously, continuously walking in front to examine their partner’s features, which is so funny to me when you consider that effort in relation to their simple line drawings … “Yep… let’s see, two big round eyes with black dots right in the middle…”  This is why I love children’s art!

Squeals of laughter during the big reveal of this fun drawing game for kids!

    What kind of paper do you use? I am absolutely going to do this for my daughters birthday party, she is turning 6.

      Hi Jessica – we don’t use anything terribly fancy but I will say it helps to use a heavier weight paper – so we usually use like a heavy watercolor paper. Otherwise they would get very wrinkled. Have fun! We’ve done this several times and it’s always super fun! The kids could even paint them when they are done. You just have to really remind everyone ahead of time, these are supposed to be a little funny (but don’t TRY to make them funny – a hard concept for 6!!) – just so no one gets their feelings hurt if they end up looking really goofy!
