Circles Creativity Challenge  

Week 1

You may allow more time if needed. 



3rd-5th Grade:  

Please complete the 30 Circle Page 

Set a timer for 30 minutes.  

You may allow more time if needed.  


 The purpose of this creativity challenge is to help students think outside the box.  



 12 or 30 Circles Recording Sheet 


 Pencil, Colored Pencils, Crayons or Markers    



 The goal of this challenge is to have your child turn as many circles as possible into recognizable objects in the time allowed. Before   students begin, explain to them that the focus is not on the skill of the drawings. Rather, students should be more concerned with   getting as many ideas generated as possible. Please click on the link below to print your child's circle page, set the timer and go. If   more time is needed, please note where your child was when their alloted time was up.



Please email me your work and feel free to email me if you have any questions: [email protected]
