3 Must-Have Drawing Activities for Your Free Choice Center

drawing activities
“We all have activities available for students that finish projects early, and I just know you’ll want to add these three ideas to your bag of tricks. Instead of “free time,” I like to think of this time as “opportunity time.” These three drawing games will help students make the most of every minute they spend in your room. Watch the video below to learn more about the student-generated Drawing Barrel, the versatile Whatchamadrawit, and the humorous Luck of the Draw.”


What are your favorite drawing games?

How do you have students fill their “opportunity” time?

    Love these activities. I also use the Decide Now! app and created a wheel of choices they spin for the prompt.

      Holy moly! That app looks awesome!! Definitely going to be trying that out!

    Alecia- Can you tell us a little bit more about whatchmacallit and Luck of the draw?

    • Alecia Eggers

      Hi Jorena,

      Here’s a whole article I dedicated to Whatchamadrawit :) –

      Luck of the Draw prompts students to draw ideas provided on cards, but then students draw a second card to see the criteria the picture should be judged against. It’s usually pretty silly, like goofiest, or “most likely to end up hanging on a refrigerator”. So it’s never who’s is “best” – each new drawing prompt has a new criteria every time.

      Let me know if you have any more questions!

    My students LOVE Luck of the Draw (my friends and I do as well)! It is such a fun game!
