Bananagrams and Other Adventures in Yellow

Where on earth did *that* week go?

So, here we are, back doing our sketches for Sketch Tuesday. This week’s assignment to sketch something yellow.

I chose Bananagrams. If you haven’t discovered this game, I highly recommend it, as you will see from my journalling:


8 year old Waif once again chose to draw one of his soft toys. I think he has done a great job drawing yellow doggy. I especially like the way his ear drapes over his leg:

And cool teenager Gman went with a host of characters from The Simpsons:

    Love the bananagrams and all things yellow! I love your blog of art creation. My 5 year old daughter is very creative and loves to paint, draw and sculpt. We love to do recycled art projects too. I will be following along to see what you’re up to and would love if you checked out my blog of kid’s projects etc! Take good care,

    Lots of ‘Yellow’ goodness here! 🙂 I have seen the banana game and wondered what it was like, and now I know. It is one I will get for the family.

  3. That’s a great sketch for an 8 yr old. He really has got the proportions and movement just right.

    We saw that game in the store my 4 yr old insisted it was filled with candy it was a good time to point out the importance of learning how to read.

      🙂 Bananas are goooood! I have recently started baking them with orange juice, coconut cream & spices and think they are the best thing ever!

    I have never heard of Banagrams, is it for adults too? Love the yellow stuff! Super fun! Is this a link up or something that you do on your own?

    • vivjm says:

      Hi Adrienne. We do the sketches for a thing called Sketch Tuesday over at Harmony Fine Arts – it’s for homeschooled kids and their families, but there’s no reason why you shouldn’t check out the prompts each time I guess.
      Bananagrams is not just for kids at all – if you like word games like Scrabble, you would enjoy this too I think.

I will reply to comments here on the blog, so please check back if you are looking for a response! I love hearing from you x
