My kids are prolific artists - drawing, playdough, anything, they create constantly. I have noticed, though, that they often stick to the same topics. I tried this activity, where they are given a title and must create a work of art with that title.
My 3 year old ignored the title completely and made a pizza, but the two older boys loved the nonsense titles and set to work with enthusiasm. It turned into a session of Speed Art, with them creating like crazy and then asking for their next title.
Another way to play would be to get every child to use the same title, and see the different interpretations.
