Pick and Draw {Review}

My husband is always making up silly drawing games for us to play. They usually involve teamwork and zany characters, and always bring lots of laughs. So when Rich Davis asked me if I wanted to review Pick and Draw (and offer a game to my readers), I said yes! I'd seen reviews of this last year and knew it would be a hit in our home!

I mentioned in my Day in the Life post on Tuesday that I was able to sneak in a review item this week. . .  and this is it! We tied this into our row in such a fun way! We used Pick and Draw to create the faces on Roy G. Biv - a colorful haired character that helps us remember the colors of the rainbow.  The kids had been begging me to play, so they were excited to say the least! 

Plus, "The aim of the game is to draw a cartoon face!" so I thought this would be a fun way to introduce the game to my little ones. 

To play, you simply draw the shape on the card. Click here to try it! We drew a nose, eyes, mouth and ears. . . and glued on our hair. 

I let the kids choose the cards on their own - they wanted to see them all before deciding.  Then they drew their funny faces - one step at a time as I read the drawing tips from the cards. 

We got a little creative with the hair too. =)

Meet Roy G. Biv.

Roy is good at helping us remember the colors of the rainbow. ;-) 

Of course, I had to get my husband and older boys in on this fun and easy drawing game too. 

So, we had a family game night! 

First, we played where we all had our own cards dealt to us. 

This was fun for seeing some just some of the 60,000 possibilities in this game. 

Then we played using the same cards for everyone ~ to see how creative and different we could be! 

Then we played "Pop" style ~ we EACH had to draw ONE facial feature on the same card - after we drew one feature, we passed the card to the next person. 

This was silly fun, especially after we gave Dylan a hard time for making the nose so big. Jordan had to get creative when placing the mouth, and I love the guy we all came up with! 

Hoping to create and document more fun family memories, I used my blank Project Life cards to play so that I can stick them in my album with photos from our game night. =) 

This really is a fun drawing game that makes learning to draw cartoon faces so easy! 

The boys said they had a lot of fun, but knowing that they are competitive, I wondered if this game would hold their interest for long. We all thought of ways to make this more competitive. . . and it was hard. No one loses when you play this game!
