Over a year ago, I wrote about the drawing game Doodle-O. A commenter there named Mike said visual examples would be great. I agree. Today was a snow day for my kids, and we played this morning. Here are two rounds to illustrate:

My six-year-old gave me this abstract design (although in portrait orientation):

Abstract design to be completed: circle, triangle, two lines, and a squiggle

I turned it into a pickup truck with some people in the back:

My twelve-year-old gave this design to me, but I was stumped, so I handed it off to my six-year-old:

Abstract design to be completed: circle chopped into by a long wedge

Without hesitation, he quickly turned it into a giant taking the top off a house:

Finished doodle: A giant taking the top off a house

Haha, that house looks so scared.

That's a good idea to pass time. Might use that trick to entertain myself when I find myself in large queues. Thanks!
