Family Drawing Time — Portraits

Wow!  This is my 100th post already!!
Want to know how your kids really see you?  Try a family portrait day!  Each member of the family takes turns drawing everyone else.  This makes for some interesting artwork, especially from the little ones.  
Here are some of Emily’s drawings:

From Left to Right:  Me (what is up with the hair??? And why am I so huge??), Mark holding Clara, and Emily (again, the hair thing…)

Mark at work (with his computer).  I am particularly fond of the keyboard detail.

My personal favorite — Emily holding Clara.

Does your family enjoy drawing together?  If so I would love to hear about it!  Leave us a comment and share your ideas with us!


  1. great drawings!

  2. Love the drawings and I think this is a very important activity to do as a family. My daughter is just starting to draw faces so soon we will be incorporating drawing time into our weeks if not even days!

  3. You're right, the "Emily holding Clara" one is the best.
