Sometimes we overburden children by expecting them to invent a story, plot, characters and dialogue from scratch.
By using their real life as fuel, children can focus on the humour and storytelling. You can make a comic book template for them
(or download one here), or they can make their own. They can then make a comic showing the peculiar life of their household.
The Beano is a great source of inspiration. Its website contains lots of comic strip examples
Draw With Rob
When the Coronavirus pandemic quarantine period began in Spring/Summer 2020, I realised that lots of people were going to find themselves at home with their children for several weeks/months looking for things to do. So I decided to post a draw-along video every Tuesday and Thursday at 10am BST that parents could watch with their kids and, hopefully, make some nice pictures. Here they all are.
