Here’s a fun activity that allows you to write and draw at the same time! In this activity, instead of coloring in shapes or shading them, students will print and repeat words related to the picture to fill in the area.

Grades: 3-8

Materials: Paper and coloring materials


Draw a picture (outline only) of a cartoon character (Like one of the undercover kids!), still life scene, person or any idea the child has. Fill in the open area with printed words related to the object or letters of the alphabet. For example, if you draw an outline of an apple you can fill in the picture with the words: seeds, red, the letter “a”, etc.

Be sure to print in medium to large letters/words inside the outlines, or the project will take too long. Before you know it you will have a creative art project with both words and illustrations! Very cool!
