Tag-Team Art

Tag-team art challenges kids to create artwork from lines, shapes and squiggles. This fun indoor game gives kids a creative way to play with friends.

What You'll Need:
  • Paper
  • Pen or pencil

An artist can see a sunset in a line, a face in a circle, or a mountain in a squiggle on a page. What do you see?

Art is twice as fun when you share the pencil! The rules are simple.

Step 1: Player One draws a line, squiggle, or simple shape on a piece of paper. As soon as you lift your pencil, it's the next player's turn.

Step 2: Player Two takes the paper and adds another line, squiggle, or shape, trying to turn the art into a picture.

Don't tell the other person what you are trying to draw. That might spoil some of the surprise. What you think is going to be a seagull might turn out to be a sunflower! See how long you can keep adding lines to your artwork. When you decide that your masterpiece is finished, start a new picture.

Making art with a friend can be a great tag-team activity. Continue reading for another relay race game.
