Idioms are phrases that say one thing but mean something else. They are a little like puzzles: try imagining a picture or a situation that the phrase suggests and then draw what you hear, not what the true meaning is.


  • White construction paper 
  • Pencil and eraser 
  • Crayons, colored pencils or colored markers 
  • Idioms printed on a sheet of paper and then each cut separately to be drawn by the students. Put in a container to draw from. 


  1. Draw an idiom slip out of the container. Take turns reading your idiom and make a guess what it means.
  2. Draw a picture depicting what the idiom says, not what it means.
  3. Color your picture. Glue the idiom to the bottom right corner of your project.
