Something to do when you are iced in for several days

Stumble Upon Toolbar

We did this a lot when I was little and we have been doing it for the past couple of days because there was bad weather and we couldn't go outside. It's called Pack-It- All-In and it's really fun. What you do is you try to fit everything on the list on one piece of paper. The catch is, it has to be in an actual scene and not just in a line. Here are some ideas:

Africa Pack-It-All-In (I wrote this one):

2 lions, 1 zebra, 2 antelope, 2 baboons, 2 trees, 1 warthog, 1 warthog den, 4 meerkats, 1 cheetah, 1 giraffe, 1 river, 3 hippos, 3 termite mounds, 2 hyenas, 1 ostrich.

Neighborhood Pack-It-All-In (My mom wrote this one):

1 house, 1 sidewalk, 4 trees, 12 birds, 1 cat, 3 kids, 8 flowers, 5 clouds, 2 dogs, 1 hill, 1 car, 1 bike.
Here's a picture of my drawing:

Farm Pack-It-All-In:

1 barn, 1 cat, 1 dog, 1 big pond, 3 pigs, 2 cows, 3 horses, 5 kids, 5 ducks, 1 mommy, 1 daddy, 1 sky, (my almost 7-year-old sister wrote this up to here, then my mom took over,) 8 flowers, 1 apple tree, 1 garden, 1 hoe, 1 rake.
Here's my drawing for this Pack-It-All-In:

Have fun!


*Note from Connie: This works for me on bad weather days. Go to Rocks in my Dryer for more "Works for Me" ideas.

This is a great idea for me since my son is usually asking me what he should draw.

Thanks for sharing. :o)
