Scribble Picnic – Fill in the Blank

Did you ever play "Pin the Tail on the Donkey"? It was a common game at birthday parties when I was in grade school. It was also the first thing I thought of upon seeing this prompt for the "Fill in the Blank" theme of this week's Scribble Picnic(You can see at least a dozen other takes on the theme here.)
I just did  a couple of initial sketches along the "Pin the Tail on the Donkey" line of thinking.
They didn't go any further, so instead I went with several dozen "pins" and multiple colors to come up with this.

Though at this point I prefer to stick with paper and pencil, I think this would have worked well for me to try on a computer program. Will I ever? We'll see!

    Your colored sketch is charming.

  10. I think we tell our age group by admitting we played Pin the Tail on the Donkey ... too bad the kids today don't enjoy such games. Both of your pictures take me back to those younger years. Times were good in those days :)

    1. :-) Glad I could bring back some good memories! I actually had some VBS kids play a variation of the game not too long ago–with tape instead of a pin!

  14. We played the game at many birthday parties when I was young. And actually, I had some VBS kids playing a version of it–using tape instead of pins–not too long ago. Thanks, Serena!
