What are drawing prompts for kids?

Drawing prompts are creative suggestions that are designed to spark a child’s imagination and / or help them get through a creative block. They come in different forms, such as a word or phrase, or they can be an unfinished drawing that the child can complete. The prompts below are open ended, so your child can envision each scene and just roll with whatever comes to mind.

Also, if you’re trying to think of ways for how to keep a child occupied at a restaurant, drawing prompts have always worked well for our family. I always bring a little notepad and a box of crayons with me. They’ll start with a prompt and then it will turn into games of tic tac toe, and other games.
