Ugly Christmas Sweater Art Game
You will design an ugly sweater by rolling the die and collecting the different patterns required to create it. First, trace the sweater onto another sheet of heavy white drawing paper. Then, roll the die to select the neckline and draw it. Next, roll to determine which festive motif you’ll add to the chest area. Draw it big! Lastly, roll three more times to select cheerful words and patterns that can be added anywhere else in the design. Repeat them as much as you like.
Using washable markers, outline everything. Be sure to outline large areas where they meet parts of the design. Dip a small brush in water and carefully smudge it in the marker lines to paint in the shapes. If you need to neatly add more “paint” to larger areas, smudge some marker on a scrap piece of paper and use that as a paint palette. Allow each area to dry slightly before moving on to a neighboring area of the design.
When dry, cut it out. If you’re short on time, design directly onto the print out from page 4 and color with dry media such as markers, crayons, and colored pencils.
And that’s how you play this ugly sweater art game!
Simply print out the game and picture directions back-to-back, give them dice, and watch them have fun creating their own ugly Christmas sweater. Once completed, use the writing prompts to connect literacy to your lesson.
