Scribble game

This is a 'game' we play; someone scribbles something, and the other person tries to make a face out of the scribble. I had forgotten about this until Sean recently came up to me to ask me to play. By this, it usually mean he scribbles and I've gotta draw.

So this...
 

...becomes this.


This...
 

...turns to this.


And the boys love it when I turn this...


...into drawings like this, nostril hair and all.

I was a big-time doodler in school. Was always soooo bored in class so a friend and I would play this scribble game. Also doodled so much that by year-end I would spend all my time erasing doodles from my borrowed textbooks. My friends always pity the student who takes over my books the next year.

I think the next student who takes over your books could have been the great cartoonist!!!! Copy from you mah ;)

You are such an artist. If I had an art teacher like you....
You know, I've been confronted by so many art topics since one of friends posted on art appreciation... Don't mean to copy in posts here ok...

So fun your game... I can copy it, right??;) Not that I can draw well.

Lilian said...

I invented this game I used to play with L-A and Andre, we take turns to scribble something on a piece of paper but since no one else knows what the other person is thinking, we could all be attempting to turn the scribbles into a different picture. Always gives us lots of laughs and we've been amazed by the "art" we manage to produce - towards the end, we almost always get in synch and produce something really nice! Try it!

Lilian said...

That's cute! Show us some of your art lah. Reminds me of what we like to play; we take turns to tell a story, each saying 3 words only. Eg, I go "Once upon a...", then Brian goes, "time, there was...", and Sean goes, "a princess and...", my turn, "she was very..." and so on.

But the two of them always spoil the game by trying to insert a tortoise character in the story, and I'm always killing it off. It always ends up with me huffing that we're gonna stop playing if they continue putting Mary (the tortoise of course) in the story and them laughing their heads off like hyenas.

This is too funny! I'm a gonna copy for sure!! Your picture of that woman is lovely! I have not artistic genein me, so luckily, sounds like all it entails is putting two eyes somewhere .. That, I can manage, hehe!

Lilian said...

Okay then, I expect all of you to post your 'art' pieces up next week, that's your project-of-the-week! haha. Make sure there's lots of curly, nostril hair!

Babypowder said...

Hmmm.. ideas.. ideas..

Keep them coming, babeeeeeeeee!!! :) For this first time ignorant and super boring mommy who sings the ABC, DO RAY MEE and INCY WINCY SPIDER song for her son every day..

Lilian said...

Yo Wendeebabeee, baby 6 months old and now you can start surfing again? hehe. Miss you lah.

You're doing great lah, keep up the singing. Don't forget One two buckle my shoe, Ten little indians, This Old man, This little piggy, that Once I caught a fish alive song and of course, Pat-a-cake is a perennial favourite.

Blog more, we lurve looking at your well-fed tubby baby. He's so funny!

Babypowder said...

Hee.. ya.. I actually also do sing those songs except.. 10 little indians. Aiyo.. racist song lah.. haha..

I've been diligently reading your blog.. just never really quite left a comment.

Will try and blog more.. getting lazy. Jialat..

Lilian said...

Wahhhh...I sang that when I was in kindergarten, it's one of the best songs for learning 1-10.

If that's racist, then cannot say 9-10, a big FAT hen, cos that's making fun of the Horizontally Gifted (or is it Challenged?). Also, cannot sing This Old Man, not nice to Senior Citizens. And in Pat-a-cake, why Baker's Man, not Woman? Baa Baa Black Sheep will have to be Baanned too :P

bACk in GERMANY said...

Heehee... to be politically correct, I used to sing,
"One little two little three little baby boys..." when B was young. Then when K was young, it was little baby girls lah... :)

Aiyoh... Lilian... 9 and 10 and that's the end lah!!! Or let's start again! In fact, my dad was the one who introduced big fat hen to my kids.

Oh Wen... enjoy the singing... somehow we sing so much less now. Kind of missing that... we always make up silly songs, esp with the Wheels on the Bus.

Lilian said...

LOL!! I think I must be the most politically incorrect mummy rhymer...Indian boys...Big Fat Hen...all part of my repertoire.

"One little two little three little baby boys..." just doesn't feel the same lah. What's wrong with singing about Indian boys anyway? I still find it very strange.

For Big Fat Hen, that's the best part of the rhyme, the climax!

Adults really do complicate things. I'm sure you've heard what some say Jack & Jill is really about? Load of BS.

My grandkids are gonna get Indian boys and big fat hens, the heck with political correctness!

bACk in GERMANY said...

Truth be told... after having sung Indian boys for like about 100th time, "little baby boys" was a welcome change. I also constantly vary the lyrics just for rhyming sake... otherwise too boring for me to keep singing the song.

I used to say things like Humpty Dumpty sat on a ball... and then my kids would go, no... not ball, it's wall, and then we'd laugh!

Lilian said...

Now who's the creative one! Your kids must have a lot of fun with you, Cindy.
