Download: Week 1 Archive
When I heard my niece and nephews (triplets, age 6) are going to be home for the next 6 weeks, I had to do something to help my sister pass the days a little easier.
So, every weekday from March 16, 2020 until April 24, 2020 I’m drawing a new creature for my niece and nephews (and anyone else) to download, print and color.
Please feel free to share this with your friends and family. I hope it brings some joy!
- Baby Dragon Castle
Some say dragons live in caves and horde their treasure. People also believe dragons breathe fire and shouldn’t be messed with. But, look at this cute little friend. How dangerous could this baby dragon be?
And what about the castle? It must be a fun and magical place if a baby dragon lives there. Your artists could draw the castle where this little friend lives.
- Chillin’ Cheetah
Sometimes cheetahs run fast and sometimes they chill out. But when they do run, they can run very fast. We’re talking 58 mph (93.3 km/h) and some have been recorded at speeds of up to 75 mph (120.7 km/h). That’s as fast as a car on the freeway!
Right now, this cheetah is just chillin’ because it’s Friday! Have a great weekend and see you all on Monday.
- Robot Circus
While the word “circus” originates in ancient Rome, the creation of what we think of as a circus is attributed to Philip Astley. He began performing with horses in 1768 along the Thames River in London. That’s 250 years ago!
The first flying trapeze act was created by Frenchman, Jules Léotard in 1859. Mr. Léotard would wear very tight clothing while performing and that’s why we often call tights and gymnast onezies, leotards!
What circus act would your artists like to perform?
- Bloop Blorp
The oceans on Earth are very deep. In fact, the deepest point is called the Challenger Deep in the Pacific Ocean’s Mariana Trench. It is 36,070 ft (10,994 meters) below the surface of the ocean. Now, that’s seriously deep.
I love to imagine what kinds of undiscovered creatures might live in those depths. Like this Bloop Blorp, for example. Why not ask your artists to draw an imaginary deep sea creature of their own!
- Gorilla Family
Tuesdays mornings are tough days regardless of what’s happening in the world. I mean, sure, you beat Monday already. But, tomorrow is Wednesday. Yuck. Then, there’s still two more days until Saturday. Maybe we should throw out the calendar and everyday is just a new day to sit in the grass and smile. Anyway, baby Gorillas are cute. It’s an undeniable fact.
- Visiting Robot
If a robot visited your house, what would be the first thing you asked? I would ask: What size shoes do you wear? Do robots wear shoes? Do you prefer sandals? Maybe it’s just me who is interested in robot footwear.
What if you went to the park and met a friendly monster with one horn? What games would you play? Maybe soccer or tennis? Or, maybe just chill in the grass and stare at clouds? I’ve heard monsters like to do that.
There are over 200 species of Chameleon, almost half of which live only on the island of Madagascar. Most Chameleons can change the color of their skin using two layers of skin. One layer with pigments and another layer containing crystals that change the reflection of light, which changes the color of the skin. What color is this Chameleon?
- Robots like flowers?
This robot is really getting a buzz from picking flowers. What kinds of flowers grow on other planets? Would they be red? Or purple? Or sparkly?
Stegophants are an ancient, mythical creature. Part Elephant and part Stegosaurus, Stegophants were silly and playful. Try to imagine the sound a Stegophant would make.
Did you know giraffes are the tallest land animal, reaching heights of 18 feet (5.5 meters)? That’s almost as tall as a two story house!
