Equipment needed: three colored felt pens for each team, masking tape, sheets of newspaper.

Divide boys into six or eight-man teams. In front of each team, a large piece of newspaper is hung on a wall with masking tape. Pens are placed on a chair, or on the floor, beside each team's paper. Line up teams about 10' away. They are told to illustrate a well-known story or TV show; or Christmas, New Year's, or Easter.

On signal, the first player in each team dashes to the wall picks up a pen, draws a specific part: head, hat, ears, face, body, etc. Or each member may be told what part to draw. Then he puts down the pen, runs back, touches the next boy. Each member adds one more part to the picture. The first team to finish wins recognition for speed, but special recognition is given for the picture that is the best team effort.
