Worksheet for Early Finishers

Worksheet for Early Finishers
This is from my TPT shop: Art Sub Lessons.  It is a quick art project for early finishers but it would work well for a sub. There are three worksheets included. One worksheet has a LEG0 figure lightly drawn in and students create their own characteristics over it. Another is the same worksheet but the character is drawn darkly. The last worksheet is a full page character with nothing else. Students may create characters from stories, movies, sports, hobbies or their own imaginations. There are sample body features that they may use or they may invent those too. There are teacher samples included so that you don't have to spend the time to do it yourself! 

Some teachers have told me that it works well as a jumping off place for a writing assignment.
