Welcome to the first week of Dig Deeper and Explore activities! This week is a monster drawing game that you can play by yourself or with others and a couple of video drawing lessons.
Roll a Monster Game
You will need:
<– this or download printable copy
pencil, crayon, or marker
1 dice (if you don’t have dice, use an online version, or cut 6 small squares of paper, label each a number 1-6, turn upside down, and mix up.)
Draw a large shape for the body of your monster on your paper.
Roll the dice (or choose one of your handmade numbers) and draw what that number says to add to the body.
Take turns if playing with someone else. Keep going until you want to stop.
