Cave Paintings

Cave Paintings game

Cave Paintings is a fun drawing game for the whole family.  Each player must draw six objects in 30 seconds in a cave man style.  Using your drawing slab and gripping your pen in your fist as you race against the timer.  We’ve been playing it this weekend and it’s a lot of fun.  It would make a great gift for a family at Christmas time.  It’s available from Argos, Smyths Toys and other toy retailers.
