 Scavenger Art by Lexi Rees

Scavenger hunts are fun.

Drawing is fun.

Put them together for ★ SCAVENGER ART ★

This unique art-based activity book includes 52 scavenger hunts designed to

✓ encourage curious minds

✓ spark creativity

✓ practise mindfulness

✓ develop drawing skills

Perfect for ages 6 to 12.

This is an inventive resource which will appeal to ages 6 plus. It encourages children to look at the world around them more closely and notice what they see. Each page is divided into a grid of 9 squares, so there are spaces for 9 drawings. The grids are grouped in categories, such as 'My House', People, Birds, Insects and Animals. 

    I think that the simple format will appeal to children. It is a very visual medium and encourages mindfulness and noticing what is in the moment. It takes a fun approach and should spark creativity and develop drawings skills. 

Cat and Mouse say: See it... draw it!
