Family Drawing Game


This super simple, really fun, family drawing game is perfect for ALL ages!

We play it when we are on the go and find ourselves waiting (doctor’s office, sporting events, airport, etc.).


  • Paper
  • Pencil or Pen or Marker or Crayon

How to Play:

  • Players take turns adding lines to the paper to create a “picture”.
  • We set the rule that each player could only add 3 lines/details on his turn, but you can make the rule that fits your family. In our game, a line could be curvy or jagged, long or short as long as you didn’t take your pencil off of the paper.
  • The game is over when the paper is full, your waiting time is up, OR when people start using their turn to scribble out other player’s details (that’s what happened in our case).

This game helped us pass the time and brought so much laughter to our afternoon. It is so interesting to see how people see the picture and what they turn it into.  Give it a try! Your family will thank you.
