Good topic! Here's a few I've done:

Blow Paint Bugs- Fluorescent paint blown on to paper in blobs. Black Sharpie
details added to the bodies.

Peace Doves- Look at Picasso's doves. Draw a dove using black marker on white
paper. Add some lines radiating out from the dove. Fill in each area with
pattern, leaving the dove white.

DRAW!- I write a sentence a the bottom of their paper & they illustrate it-
black Sharpies and then colored pencil. Ex: My Messy Bedroom, Help! I'm Caught
In A Video Game!, Princess Peony and Her Pet Frog Herman, Inside My stomach
After Lunch, etc. (I have a huge list I made up) Kinda like the Anti-Coloring

Mistake Paintings- Read the book "A Big Mistake" by Lenore Rinder about a girl
who turns a blob of paint into a picture of a circus. They make a mistake on
their paper, then trade with a neighbor, who must turn the mistake into
