What do your children draw at school? DS1 (6 years old) draws game, after game, after game, and a friends little girl (also 6) tends to draw people, her family etc. I just  find it fascinating how they draw such different things, I don't think I have ever seen DS1 draw people/family unless specifically told to.

Both of my girls tend to draw people and people doing things. The older one (just turned 7) will also draw animals, landscapes, flowers and designs for things. She went through a maps stage for a while too.

DS draws treasure maps and factories.....he has done A couple of our family, but that's because it's a topic they are doing at school

My eldest draws charcters from TV shows or treasure maps, or pretend computers

My middle child draws houses

My youngest always draws people eating doughnuts. I have no idea as we don't even buy doughnuts as I hate them. Every single picture though has a person eating a doughnut. People probably think we live on them laughing2.gif

DS6 draws about Star Wars. He does an awesome R2D2  biggrin.gif

DS5 is more a fan of colouring books than drawing.

DS1 age 7 (with ASD) draws Angry Birds, Angry Birds, Angry Birds, Lightning McQueen/Cars and the occasional Buzz Lightyear.

DS2 age 4 is currently into rainbows, so much so I think he may have been a unicorn or leprechaun in a previous life. laughing2.gif

My oldest has always been more of an abstract artist original.gif  She like patterns, colours.
DD2 will be more likely to draw scenes - people, animals, houses etc etc.
DD3 will usually do people, but not as big into drawing or colouring as the other two are.

DS5 draws all sorts of things. His family, submarines, animals, maps of his school, trees, houses and skylanders.

His pictures have improved a lot in the last couple of months.

How do you draw a game?

Dd2, who is almost 6, draws the most interesting things. This morning she drew a sequence of a bird hatching from an egg, flying for the first time out of the tree, sitting on a branch, fallining out of the tree and hurting its wing, and then eating honey from a beehive on the ground. Last week she drew a pair of giraffes, an eagle, a couple of long neck dinosaurs and a butterfly hanging around a tree. All very random things but usually animals.

it looks sort of like a map with little traps here and there, and then I get the commentary about how you play it, what trap does what when you land on it, and on and on it goes lol.

My nearly 4 year old just does squiggles still. He went through a phase ages ago where he did faces, but no more...

Should I be worried???!!

DD was always drawing horses from before she started school. She is now 17 and works full time for a racehorse trainer.

DS only ever drew cars or motorbikes and now, at 14, races motorcross almost every weekend.

The message here: be careful what they draw when they are little because that could be what they are destined to do later in life. Sorry Xena, looks like a Donut King franchise for you.

Miss 6 draws herself, her friends, princesses, fairies, unicorns, castles, rainbows, aliens, space ships, Jupiter, Mars, the moon, the life cycle of a butterfly, a lot of it comes from the topic at school.

Miss 4 draws people, flowers, butterflies, lions,'skellingtons' spiders and rainbows

My 6 year old granddaughter will draw anything in front of her but themed choice seems to be mostly princesses.

wallofdodo my DD and DS2 are almost 4 and still only do squiggles, I am hoping school next year gets them into drawing real pictures.

DS11 is totally obsessed with 'steampunk' and draws lots of mechanical animals at the moment.
DS3 draws an Olympic picture every.single.day. Apparently the Olympics had a big impression on him!

My sons principle mentioned something about this, she has been at the same school for decades and swears that most kids will end up doing something the were obsessed about when in the 1st few years of school.

DS1 5 years old high functioning ASD- houses mostly, caravans for a while, planes for a while, likes Halloween scenes so pumpkins, witches monsters, robots, the coolest submarine, underwater ocean scenes (octonaughts phase), rainbows for awhile, stick figure family every now and then. not into colouring.

DS2 4 years old, squiggles, if your lucky and M's (the start of his name) apparently he drew a camel at kindy, it looked like circles and a few squiggles and one pic of himself that kind of looked like a person but he isnt interested, he is a real boyish boy, all physical stuff for him.
