Dear Readers, can you stand yet another giveaway?
I sure hope so because I have a fun game to give away to one lucky person.
The game is called Pick and Draw. It’s a one-of-a-kind game that is based on drawing.
The aim of the game (what a delightful rhyme, eh?) is to draw a cartoon face.
There are 5 groups of cards: face, nose, eyes, mouth, and hair.
To play, divide the cards into the various groups. Shuffle each group individually.
Turn the cards face down. Players take turns selecting a card starting with the face cards.
On a piece of paper, players draw the shape that is on the card. They continue taking turns drawing cards until they have taken one card from each category and they have drawn a complete cartoon face.
Think you aren’t an artist? Don’t worry! Don’t fret! The objects on the card are easy to draw – easy enough that even little ol’ me can draw them and create a decent looking cartoon face. (That says a lot since it’s a challenge for me to draw a stick figure . . .)
In this card game, there isn’t a winner or a loser. Wahoo! I like that. Everybody wins because they have drawn a cartoon face.
Rich Davis, the game creator, is a freelance children’s book illustrator with Penguin Putnam. He has illustrated 9 books. He has also designed greeting cards for over 20 years. He travels to public libraries and elementary schools to draw with kids and to talk about creativity and imagination.
The Pick and Draw card game would be a great activity to do after your Thanksgiving dinner when you are too stuffed (pun intended) to do anything very physically demanding. It would be fun to play at a family Christmas party, a birthday party, on a hot summer day, on a rainy or snowy day, on a I’m-bored-outta-my-gourd-and-there’s-nothing-to-do kind of day with a grandchild.
The bottom line is that ANY time is a good time to play this game.
The activities in the book align with the common core standards.
If you are an elementary school teacher – or you know one – this would be a great resource book to use with your students at school.
This game would be a perfect stocking stuffer for Christmas for a family or grandchild. Or a birthday present for a grandchild. Or a gift that you give yourself so that you can have the game on hand to play when your grandchildren come over to visit.
Now. On to the giveaway.
To win this card game, all you have to do is leave a comment and tell what card game you played as a child.
You have until midnight on November 23 to make a comment. I will announce the winner on November 24.
Thanks in advance for participating in my giveaway!
