Are you looking for some fun ideas to add to your family night agenda? Ones that don’t involve a lot of fuss, preparation, or expense?
Well, today I’ve got something to share that is easy to implement and doesn’t require much forethought (except having some pencils and paper handy).
Introducing: The Family Draw.
I first came across the concept of the family draw while browsing Amanda Blake Soul’s book, The Creative Family. In it she describes how to share a night of fun with your children by drawing together.
This struck me as a delightful idea.
Many kids enjoy drawing or painting, but what about adults? When was the last time you picked up a pencil and drew a picture, just for the fun of it?
I’m probably asking he wrong crowd. I mean, this is Simple Homemade after all. Perhaps you scratched out some doodles this morning! (If you did, be sure to tell us in the comments.)
The point is, it’s fun to draw and most of us don’t do it enough. Plus, it’s good for your brain. Not to mention the bonds made when you sit down and draw alongside your child.
