At school my class all made animal drawings. We had printed pictures of animals such as the frog, snake and toucan. I chose the owl. We copied those pictures. (We didn’t trace, we just looked at the animal that was printed.) Mine was the last one done, but it turned out really well so I decided to put it on this blog. My favorite part of my owl is the feather on the left ear. If I drew another owl or other bird I would probably do the feathers this way. I really liked the way they turned out.
I drew this when I was in second grade. It was for an art show at my school. There were three choices for the theme. One was “Believe.” That’s what I chose. The title of my picture is “Believe It.” I believe in unicorns and that’s why I drew a unicorn in my picture. I won a water bottle and a little tag that my school calls a dog tag. They had an assembly where you could see all of the things that people did: pictures, dances, photos. There was even one person that wrote a song on the piano.
My brother got a game for Christmas called Super Mario Kart. It has a person named Princess Peach. Once I just wanted to draw something. And I had been drawing some other pictures with one person who looked just like this:
So I drew one picture of the person closer up and decided to call her Princess Peach. I got the idea from my brother’s Super Mario Kart game.
I like to make pictures of fairy tale things. Dragons are sometimes in fairy tale stories, so I drew a picture of a girl flying with dragons in the sky. Dragons are one of my favorite fairy tale animals. On the bottom of my picture I drew a little house and a little guy. The guy is looking up at the dragons and the girl with his hands up in the air like he’s surprised. I like to put lots of details into my pictures. The house and the guy were the little details that I put in my picture.
I like under water animals. I also like under water fairy tale characters like mermaids. One night in bed while I was supposed to be sleeping I was drawing, because I love to draw. I was thinking about mermaids that night so I drew a picture of mermaids with their pets next to their underwater treasure.
I made a game where two people play. This is how you play. You each get an angel, a princes, a giraffe, a wolf, a hammer man, a pirate, and an army card.
Each player has an army. When somebody’s army gets hurt then you draw a little space with pencil on the red line.
You roll the dice. Whoever gets the lowest number draws a space on the line on the army card.
The giraffe can reach to the treasure on the game board. It can also fight. When it gets hurt you fill a little pencil mark in the little red stripe.
A pirate is a good warrior to have on your team. A pirate is strong and smart. When it gets hurt you fill a little pencil mark in the stripe.
The wolf is fierce. It also has a stripe that when it gets hurt you put a pencil mark in the stripe.
A hammer man is a man with a hammer. It can hit people with the hammer. The hammer man is strong. You fill in a pencil mark on the stripe when it gets hurt.
A princess is very strong and very very smart. As you can see it has a stripe too that you fill a little pencil mark in on it whenever it gets hurt.
An angel is the best warrior you can have. You fill in a little pencil mark in the line when it gets hurt as well.
Then you make a game board that has the word treasure up in one of the top corners. Then remember roll the dice, whoever gets the lowest number gets a mark on the game piece that is fighting and on the army card. The giraffes have a long neck that can reach to the treasure on any one of your turns, but only one time can each team reach up with their giraffe to get the treasure. When you get the treasure you can erase any of the pencil marks you put on your army card or your army guys. Now you are ready to play. Have fun.
