Form drawings are exercises that help students gain better physical control of their hand movements to gain fine motor skills. These are similar to Zentangles and include things like running patterns (waves, etc). Drawing exercises like these get students into a meditative state and help with focus. In the Waldorf classroom, form drawings are a pre-curser to cursive writing. In your classroom, they could be used in a variety of ways: sketchbook actives, brain breaks, extension activities, or practice for fine motor skills.
