THE BUS GAME (play it today)

When I was in art school my friends and I rode the bus everywhere and took every opportunity we had to create. One of our favorite “creations” was the bus game. It’s easy and fun to play. It can be themed, have a goal, or just be random. The surface can be a piece of paper or a chalkboard or even a placemat. Create a party mural with a roll of craft paper. You don’t have to be great at drawing, just rely on your imagination.

two or more players
paper or something to draw on
pencil, pen, crayons, paint…mix it up

Pick a starter, that person starts to draw an object on the paper (don’t finish it completely) the next person has to add to the object touching or connecting a line to it, then the next person and so on…

Many, many masterpieces were born with this game. Oh, and you don’t have to be on a bus, just not on your phone.
