Ideas for Sketchbook Drawing in the Winter

  1. Snowy Adventures: Illustrate children engaged in winter activities like building snowmen, sledding down hills, or catching snowflakes with their tongues. Capture the joy and wonder of these winter adventures.
  2. Penguin Slide: Draw a snowy landscape with a family of penguins sliding down an icy hill.
  3. Winter Fashion: Design stylish winter outfits, complete with cozy coats, hats, scarves, and mittens. Get creative with patterns and colors to make your fashion sketches stand out.
  4. Winter Sports Action: Capture the energy and excitement of winter sports like skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, or even snowball fights. Show dynamic poses and movements in your drawings.
  5. Winter Wildlife: Draw animals that are associated with winter, like majestic deer, playful squirrels, or rabbits leaving footprints in the snow.
  6. Winter Birds: Draw a group of birds perched on snow-covered branches. Add hats and scarves to keep them extra warm.
  7. Cozy Winter Scenes: Illustrate a warm and inviting winter scene, such as a crackling fireplace with stockings hanging above it or a peaceful cabin nestled in a snowy landscape.
  8. Frosty Patterns: Create intricate patterns inspired by frost and ice. Experiment with different shapes and designs to depict the delicate formations found in winter.

This is just the start! I have 5 more ideas that I’d love to share with you in a format that will make it easy to use with your students.

themselves, relax, let loose their imaginations, and capture memories.
