These free printable Winter directed drawing pages are perfect for kids that want to learn how to draw or need a little help being creative. Your kids are going to love drawing penguins, polar bears, snowmen, mittens, and so many more adorable winter-themed characters and objects!
Use free printable winter directed drawing pages to encourage the development of fine motor skills, imagination, and creative thinking.
Encourage your kids to think outside the box and be as creative as possible. Invent stories about your favorite winter drawings. Young children can tell their stories aloud or draw them in winter “comics.” Older children can practice their handwriting skills by writing out their winter themed stories to share.
They’re an especially great tool for distance learning this year! Don’t forget to sit down and draw with your students and before you know it you’ll all be drawing mittens and hot cocoa together. You may even notice that children who were reluctant to participate before are suddenly involved and building confidence.
Give students fun writing prompts to help them create stories using their drawings. Ask children to tell a story about the snowman they just drew where he has magical powers. Encourage kids to practice writing instructions for making the best hot cocoa ever.
Get Creative with Directed Drawing Worksheets This Winter
Beyond creative writing, you can turn these winter directed drawing printables into some exciting process art projects too. I love process art for kids because it’s all about the process of creation, not the finished product. Process art encourages kids to be creative and explore different techniques and materials.
I love the idea of using the directed drawing pages for sweaters to have an ugly sweater contest. Tell your students to create the craziest sweaters they can think of using lots of different materials: glitter, yarn, finger paint, dry pasta, etc. With older children, you can have them design ugly sweaters that say something about themselves. For example, a child who loves video games might want to decorate their sweater to look like a favorite game character.
Directed Drawing Pages are Perfect for Distance Learning
Directed drawing pages are a really fun and simple way for children to learn to draw because these printables break each winter character or object down to simple steps kids can follow easily. Creating their own winter drawings easily is a big confidence booster. These free printable winter directed drawing worksheets will help shy kids get engaged in the lesson.
