This month’s starter activity, taken from ComicsClub.blog’s September Comics Challenge, was to draw yourself as random things!
Continuing with the theme of random things, we then asked the children to select and draw two random things from this list of random categories:
- Something light
- Something heavy
- Something spiky
- Something round
- Something that needs to be plugged in
The children then had to find a way to link those two things in a story/comic. Should they combine the two objects to create an interesting character? Or should the story revolve around those two objects? Or should one object be the character and the other a tool?
