Equipment Needed: paper, colored pencils/markers

Activity Description:

1. Have everyone start out with their own sheet of paper and write their name on the back.
On the front of the sheet of paper, draw a simple shape or maybe an activity (something
you like to do).
2. After a minute, everyone will pass their paper in one direction; either all to the left or all
to the right. No one should be talking so that no hints are given about anyone’s drawing.
3. When you get passed a new sheet of paper, you have to think of what the original person
was trying to depict so you can add to the drawing.
4. You will keep passing around everyone’s papers, with only one minute to draw each
time, until you get your paper back. This ends the loop and you can see what your peers
added to your original drawing!

Interaction Pattern:
This activity has an aggregate interaction pattern. Everyone is working on the drawing in
front of them, while in company with peers who are doing the same thing, but no interaction is
taking place. I think this activity is great because even if you aren’t a great artist, you can still
contribute to the drawing in any way you can. You can also participate without fear of someone
noticing your drawing skills, because everyone is focused on their own drawing and no one will
know what you contributed at the end. It’s a great activity for any age and it is very cool to see
everyone’s finished drawings at the end! It’s similar to “whisper down the lane” in that you are
starting your drawing one way, and by the end, it could end up completely different.


1. Depending on the level of injury, different adaptations may need to be used. For someone
with a C1-C4 level of injury, they will most likely not have use of their hands/arms. An
easel can be used to help hold up the paper and they can hold the marker in their mouth to
be able to draw that way. Increased time for drawing might also be helpful.
2. With a C5-C8 level of injury, the use of their arms/hands varies. Having them draw with
their mouths might still be a good option, or if they have a little more control over their
hands, you could use a finger grip/support tool to help them hold the marker in their
hand. Increased drawing time might still be helpful.
