Day #89 Water Doodles

Something that I pull out quite regularly for Boo to play with is our ‘Aqua Doodle’.  It’s a fab activity for when you want to let your little one be creative and messy, but don’t want to deal with the actual ‘mess’.

Izzy is only just getting into holding pens and paintbrushes, so has never really had a play with our ‘doodle mat’ – no time like the present! 🙂

Boo is now able to fill his own ‘doodle pen’ with water which is quite useful since a lot of the time he will sit and doodle, and then also suck the water from the pen!

Izzy was very intrigued with her pen and kept making big swirls across the mat.  I loved that even when she decided to draw all over herself, there was no stress for me as it’s just water.

When the mat was covered we simply left it out to dry and our ‘canvas’ magically erased ready for next time…

    • Hi Catherine. The mat is called an ‘Aqua Doodle’ and we bought ours from (it is the ‘rainbow’ one) but you can get them in most toy stores and some supermarkets – they usually have a pen included but you can also buy additional ones too. Thanks Sara x
