Comic Strip Capers

Comic Strip Capers craft

Hand-drawn comics tickle funny bones and promote literacy. Kids build organization skills and boost brain power as they illustrate their cartoon strip.

  • 1.

    Cut one or two sheets of white paper in half lengthwise with Crayola® Scissors. Make one long strip by taping the pieces together with clear adhesive tape.

  • 2.

    With Crayola Washable Crayons and a ruler, divide the paper into even sections with vertical lines. These are the frames for your comic strip.

  • 3.

    Imagine your comic strip characters and theme. Organize the sequence of events for your story. Plan the pictures for each frame.

  • 4.

    Draw and color the pictures for your comic strip in order in the frames. Write words for dialogue, or ask an adult to help.

  • 5.

    Tell your story to your friends by pointing to each picture and explaining the action. Draw sequels to your comic strip to keep the story going!
