Take a look at the incomplete figures pictured. What do you see? Choose one of these, or have someone create a figure for you. Set a timer for five minutes, let your imagination go wild and see what you can create.
What story can you tell? Can you create something unusual? Uncommon? Humorous? Does your drawing tell a story? Have two family members use the same figure and see how their final products differ. Tell stories based on your creations!
