Not everyone has the ability to create Disney quality masterpieces when it comes to drawing characters, but everyone can have a go!

I’ve created some bits and pieces that you can use to get some inspiration for a character or cartoon for your ministry. You can even print these out and use them as an activity with the kids- I did this recently with a group of primary school kids who all LOVED the activity and were very creative!

It doesn’t matter if you’re great at drawing or if you’ve never tried- just have a go at copying these drawings to get your skills up- try mixing and matching different expressions, eyes, etc to create something new and unique.

    Awesome character examples! This is sure to stir the creativity in any child. Great for kids who aren’t confident at drawing and inspiring for kids who want to take it further.

    I’ve actually used these at a few schools and found that the kids really get inspired and excited to draw their own characters, even for the kids that usually avoid drawing. Thanks for your feedback!

    I wonder if I can use these images in videos to my YouTube Channel without copyright problems!
    I’ve done a video where I put in the background the first cartoons!
    I leave here the link to see!
    I’m doing another video where I will put these same cartoons and do not want to receive copyright notices, do I have your permission to use freely!
    I leave the link in stealth video for your work!
    Thank you!
