Try our Touch Drawing Challenge 


This activity is inspired by Elspeth Owen's love for collecting naturally found things like sticks, cobwebs and stones. 


  1. Collect as many different naturally made things as you can find in and around your home. 

  2. Fold a piece of paper into four to fit more drawings on

  3. Ask someone to place one of your found objects in your hand held behind your back.

  4. With the other hand try and draw it by how it feels in your hand (without peeking!) 

  5. How will you draw sharp, smooth, heavy, squidgy or light things differently?

  6. Compare the objects with your drawings.  Do they look different?

  7. Swap with your partner
