Pick and Draw Game: GIVEAWAYS

Rich Davis, creator of a new drawing game called Pick and Draw, sent me a copy of his game to play with my kids.   I love this idea!   I can't believe no one has invented this card game already. :)

The concept is simple.   The deck of cards contains face shapes, eyes, noses, mouths and hair.  Pick a card from the face pile, draw it.  Then pick the other facial features.  You can add your own creativity by changing the sizes, directions, adding bodies, etc.  What are the cartoon characters holding?  Where are they located?  What are their names? 


Here is how I set up the classroom.
Each table had cards to pick from.  The kids moved from table to table.

Starting the face
Drawing lots of faces!  The kids were really excited and wanted to keep drawing more and more.

This student stapled together 5 sheets and set them up on the floor.

More characters
Beautiful!

You can try out the game online for yourself!  Go here. You can order the game for yourself here for $10 per deck.  I think it is well worth the money.  This would be a great game to have in your free-time drawing area.

Now....  Time for a giveaway!  If you would like a chance to win the Pick and Draw game, leave a comment here.  I will pick a winner randomly from a hat on April 1.

Your right, I'm surprised nobody had ever thought of this game before, it reminds me a little of the game 'guess who' from my childhood lol.
