Art in the Dark

Art In The Dark is one of the silly games and a fun kids game.


2 or more players
Ages: 6 and up
Need pencils (or crayons) and paper


Begin by turning the lights out. An adult then starts telling a story.

The kids have to draw, in the dark, what the adult asks them to draw.

This is a lot of fun for the kids to do! Since they can't see, you can expect some pretty funny pieces of art to come about.

Example, an adult says, "There was once a rabbit named Randy. Draw Randy." The kids then draw a rabbit on their papers.

The story continues, "Randy had a friend named John, who was a horse. Draw John." The kids then draw a horse.

"Randy and John liked to play in the lake. Draw the lake." The kids draw a lake.

"They like playing with Tommy, a turtle, when they are at the lake. Draw Tommy". And the kids draw a turtle.

"The turtle had a friend named Buddy. Buddy was a bird". The kids then draw a bird.

"Buddy had a nice birdhouse that his family lived in". They draw the bird's house.

Try to keep the story to 5 or 10 minutes. It's not easy to draw in the dark!

After the story is finished, the lights are turned on. The kids show each other their drawings.

If you want to name a winner, each player can vote on a picture that best shows the story.

Players cannot vote for their own drawing!

The End

Or, make every kid a winner and give each one a small prize.

Get ready for a lot of laughs with this activity!

A rabbit may look like a snowman! A lake may look like a rock!

A turtle may look like a dinosaur!
