Words are just another way for us to express what we see. Combine your word skills with your artistic ability to paint a better -- more literal -- picture of what you see. This word game brings the creativity of crafts and language together for a fun activity.

What You'll Need:

  • Blank paper
  • Markers
  • Crayons
  • Colored pencils

Some words seem more powerful than their quiet cousins. "Big" seems small when compared to "enormous." "Wet" seems a little dry when held up next to "drenched."

Pick your favorite powerful word, and carefully draw it in large block letters on a blank piece of paper. Then decorate the block letters with pictures and designs that help illustrate just what this blockbuster word means.
