This month I am counting down the weeks until my book is officially released all over the place. I decided to share with you 1 project a week for 4 weeks (that is 4 projects, in case you are mathematically challenged.)

Each project will correspond with a different chapter in the book. Bonus question: How many chapters in the book?

This first project is a simple drawing game that I named, Geometry Trees, or Geometrees. Doesn’t that sound lovely? It is! And it’s easy beyond belief. Good for kids, good for you.

Grab a black Sharpie and white card stock, plus some extra markers if you are in a coloring mood.

Step 1: Draw a straight line about a quarter of the way up the page.
Step 2: Start drawing straight lines out to represent branches. Don’t plan too much where they go, just fill up the page with your tree.

Step 3: Close up some or most of your tree with lines- basically your tree is turning into a bunch of small geometric shapes, thus the fabulous name.

Step 4: Color them in if you so desire. This is your chance to make your own coloring page, instead of coloring in someone else’s artwork.

    • Awsome! what a great art; going to try it

      • Great to hear! I’d love to see it!

  2. Hi! Do you do custom artwork that I could use for a coloring program with kids, and maybe adults too? I love how fun and unique this is! Thanks!

    • I haven’t done custom work like this before, but I’d love to hear what you are looking for- jeanette (at) craftwhack (dot) com

  3. I have three littles…they loved it! I even joined in. (My oldest is about to be nine, my middle is seven, and my baby is three and a half.)

    • I am so so so excited to hear when kids enjoy these projects! Especially different ages. I love to come up with projects that kids enjoy, but that parents find themselves wanting to try as well.

  4. I think I need to try this too…

    • I hope you do! It’s quite relaxing, and it’s the sort of thing where you end up coming up with new drawing ideas to try.

      • New ideas are something I do need, and that’s a fact!

  5. This would make a very interesting quilt!

    • Ooh- that’s a really cool idea!

  6. I´m in! (and waiting for your book being released!) 😉
    Love from Austria,
    Maren

    • Oh, thanks so much for sharing. These are beautiful pieces!

  7. I loved this artwork and used it in my Jr. High classroom. I expanded the idea and “branched out” to include line, color, and shape with the four seasons. Thank you for the inspiration. 🙂

  8. Oh, goodness. Blogging can be a dangerous sport. 🙂 I hope they liked the drawing project!
