It’s time to get creative and have fun with your family! Pull out your pencils and create a hilarious monster by drawing only half each. See who can make the most ridiculous creature.
This activity is a great one to do together as a family.
Ideal for: Lower Primary, Upper Primary Ages 5 – 12
- chill time (meditation/mindfulness)
- be creative (art and craft)
Time required: 10 minutes for one drawing

This is a fun activity for encouraging kids to socialise politely and positively with others. Take the pressure off creating a ‘good’ artwork (because you can’t predict what your partner is going to draw), and focus on having a laugh with others.

- Coloured pencils and pens
- White paper (A4)
Learning@Home from Cool Australia
Learning@Home resources are designed for parents and teachers to use with children in the home environment. They can be used as stand-alone activities or built into existing curriculum-aligned learning programs. Our Learning@Home series includes two types of resources. The first are fun and challenging real-world activities for all ages, the second are self-directed lessons for upper primary and secondary students. These lessons support independent learning in remote or school settings.
Cool Australia’s curriculum team continually reviews and refines our resources to be in line with changes to the Australian Curriculum.
