Last year, when KCD did a doodle tour during the school holidays, we played Bird Bingo, a game I created after seeing so many birds in Brisbane. Now you can play the game in your neighborhood! Here’s a US version I’m introducing as a FREE printable download. More versions will be available in the future. Click on the image below to download the card.
Word of warning: Spotting birds requires patience, and it will be challenging to spot all of the birds in one session, unless you take this game to a bird sanctuary or zoo.
Play Variation: See how many of each bird you can spot, and see who can find the most.

Copenhagen-based HuskMitNavn’s inventive use of paper makes his drawings come alive. As you can see below, the artist transforms a piece of paper from a flat sheet to a dimensional canvas by folding, crumpling, tearing, and rolling. It’s an imaginative way to integrate the page into the piece of art. Take a look:
I like his sense of humor and playful approach to drawing. See more of the artist’s work here.
Take a sheet of paper and fold a corner. What do you see? A kite? A cliff? A hat? What if you roll a piece of paper into a cone? Can you imagine it as a tunnel or is it a spyglass or can of soda? Or try tearing tiny holes into it; can you picture a snowstorm or is it bits of apple that a caterpillar is eating? Experiment with combining pages together, or folding one sheet and passing it to a partner to see what he/she comes up with! I bet they will surprise you. There are infinite possibilities! Happy doodling!
During our Drawing Tour, our favorite warm-up game was “Squiggly Sketching.”
For 2 or more players
pen or pencil
To play, close your eyes as you draw a line on a blank sheet of paper. Then pass the page to another person so that they can add to the doodle.
