Twenty-eight kindergarten (15 boys and 13 girls) and 20 first-grade (12 boys and 8 girls) children drew 4 pictures of either the Easter bunny or the Easter basket prior to Easter and 2 pictures of the same symbol after Easter. Height and width measures were obtained for each drawing and correlation matrices were constructed individually for age, sex, ordinal position, and symbol – bunny vs. basket. Patterns of change in the drawings as a function of these variables were examined and the correlations in drawing measures were assessed. The results supported the naturally-motivated expectancy hypothesis and suggested some neglected sources of variability in children’s drawings of Easter symbols.
