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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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. 🙂

  3. Just did this with my class. That ‘need a laugh?’ headline about sex went over well when I showed your example on the projector. Oops!
