This Scarecrow Drawing Game is the perfect way to practice prewriting and drawing skills while also working on answering questions and direction-following!
If you are looking for a fine motor activity with a fall theme, we’ve got you covered! Our new scarecrow drawing game has kids answering questions about themselves to complete the drawing of a scarecrow. No artistic talents necessary!
The best part about this activity, is that it allows kids to practice pre-writing strokes in a fun way meaning that they get the added bonus of developmental skill building through play.
What you’ll need:
This template contains two versions of the “key” for filling in the details of the scarecrow – one with pre-written questions and one with blanks to write in your own!
-Crayons or markers
What to do:
To complete the drawing game, kids one question at a time. Their individual answer determines what each feature of their scarecrow will look like. For example, the question of “are you a girl or a boy” dictates if the eyes that they draw on the scarecrow will be circles or X’s. Complete all nine questions to cover all parts of the scarecrow from the hat to the patches!
For Virtual Sessions:
Pull the free PDF up and screenshare the question page during your virtual session. Have kids use a blank piece of paper to follow your directions to draw a scarecrow (a simple stick person works!). Then, read the questions to the child and have them add the features/colors to their scarecrow according to their answers. Here’s a great video demonstrating how to use this activity during a virtual session!
Skill areas addressed:
We can bet that no two scarecrows will turn out the same! Give it a try and send us a picture of your favorite kiddo’s Scarecrow Drawing!
