Drawing Prompt: Railroad Tracks
Our toddlers went through a train obsessed phase and while I wanted to support their interest, I also felt that they should occasionally diverge their play away from the train table. This drawing prompt is one activity we did to bring our train enthusiasm to a different medium.
To create this simple drawing prompt, take a stack of white paper. Use a sharpie or black marker to draw a simple train track pattern across the bottom. Place the papers in a basket near some drawing implements. Make them visible in your art area or wherever you typically create. When my son first saw the paper he ran to get his Thomas train to drive back and forth. However, soon he became interested in the colored pencils and drew swirls across the tracks and declared it a "red engine."
