Do you remember Etch a Sketch? If you spent many happy hours drawing pictures on the screen then magically removing them using the plastic slider, you’ll relish the opportunity to relive your childhood on Etch a Sketch Day.

The Etch a Sketch toys are still readily available, so it’s a chance to invest in one and get sketching. If you prefer, taking time to do any sort of drawing or painting will be a good way of marking Etch a Sketch Day.

This day is all about creativity, so undertaking anything which involves a pencil, pen or brush is appropriate. Why not have an Etch a Sketch competition with friends or colleagues, or give everyone a thirty-second limit to produce a work of art?

With so many choices for having fun whilst also creating something original and wonderful, it’s no wonder that Etch a Sketch Day is so widely celebrated.
