A few years ago, a good friend told me about a game she sometimes plays to amuse her kids.

Each person draws a head on the top half of a small piece of paper, then passes the paper, face down, to the next person.

That person draws the body below (without peeking at the head).

(It helps if the person drawing the head makes little tick marks on the bottom half of the paper to indicate where the neck should be.)

When everyone has finished, the papers are unfolded and the entire creature is revealed.

Since I have my friend’s daughter with me today, we decided to play!

Here is what we drew:

I’m kind of partial to the chick-monk myself.




A few days ago I posted a card from a kid’s game.

Today I received more of the cards in the mail.

Thank you, Leighann! 🙂

I thought you’d like to see them.
