kids drawingThis is a super "getting to know you" game for parties, camps and drama groups.

You will need a pencil and a piece of paper for each player.

To start, everyone should find a partner.  It's best if you choose someone you don't know (or don't know well).  Each pair should choose who is going first.  This is Person 1 and the other partner is Person 2 in each pair.

Person 1 then has one minute to interview Person 2, and find out as much as possible in that time.

At the end of one minute, Person 1 then has two minutes to write Person 2's name on the piece of paper, and then draw a picture of Person 2 showing as many things as possible that were learnt in the interview. 

For example: Person 2 might say that she loves music, walking in the rain and that she has two cats and a dog.

Person 1's drawing could show a girl with musical notes around her, wearing an umbrella and gumboots, and surrounded by her pets.

After two minutes, swap around so now Person 2 interviews Person 1 and draws the portrait.

Once all the Person 2's have finished drawing, all players should take turns in getting up and presenting their pictures to the group.  Each should introduce the person in the picture to the group.

Here's a quick summary of how the game goes:

1.  Form pairs.

2.  Person 1 interviews Person 2 for 1 minute.

3.  Person 1 draws a picture of Person 2 for 2 minutes.

4.  Person 2 interviews Person 1 for 1 minute.

5.  Person 2 draws a picture of Person 1 for 2 minutes.

7.  All players present their drawings one at a time to the group.

The completed portraits of each player can be a fun memento to take home!
