Draw the missing half of a vehicle to make the picture complete! These drawing prompts are good for introducing the concept of symmetry and basic geometric shapes to all transportation enthusiasts.
After Anselm’s enthusiasm for our insect drawing prompts, the next theme didn’t require much contemplation. Vehicles. Transportation. Things that go. Our son is enthusiastic about all of those. “Car” was one of his first words, and his interest has only grown and expanded, first to construction vehicles and more recently to space exploration vehicles and robotics.
Benefits of “Missing Half” Drawing Prompts
While the “missing half” drawing prompts don’t directly foster imagination, they’re great for developing a variety of other skills like:
- Understanding bilateral symmetry
- Matching colours
- Fine motor writing & drawing skills.
Vehicles are, as a rule, pretty geometric; so, while working on these prompts, my son is learning to name many basic shapes (circle, triangle, rectangle), as well as count different parts, choose the right colours, and so on. Most importantly, he really enjoys playing with these printables. They serve as challenge for his drawing endeavours, and what kid doesn’t like a little challenge?
The hot air balloon is probably the most challenging picture. Just look at all the colours!
In the pictures, you will find ten vehicles – a car, a truck, a race car, a bulldozer, a tram, a bicycle, a hot air balloon, an airplane, a rocket, and a UFO.
