Right up there with eating and playing on their list of favorite things to do, my daughters love to color. Anything from a coloring book to a blank piece of paper to a scrap of junk mail that they find in a pile to be recycled is scooped up and decorated with crayons, markers, pencils or pens.
Therefore, we have had instances in the past where I have wished that I had art supplies with me to keep them busy while we're waiting for an appointment or at a restaurant or when I have to spend half an hour standing there convincing the bank that they were the ones who lost our mortgage payment, not me (which, when they called later to admit that they had found it, would it have been that hard to include an apology?).
Now, instead of trying to figure out how to pack up a stack of loose items and hoping that they don't all end up spread throughout a bag or scattered in the car, I know that I can simply grab a Doodle Roll and be ready for just about anything.
Created by a husband and wife team following their vision to invent a way for children to expand and express their creativity and imaginations, the Doodle Roll Activity Kit is the epitome of portable fun.
Limitless on the possibilities and uses, the Doodle Roll is a safe, useful and fun product that is either 4" wide and 15' long or 6" wide and 30' long and extremely easy to use. By having a roll of wound-up paper contained in one end and four or eight crayons (depending on the size Roll) neatly packaged in the other, there is no wait for children to be able to enjoy this clever creation.
Simply pull the paper out through the edging...
...and it is held in place for kids to have access to begin their creative play. All that is left is to pop open the crayon holder and they are ready to go!
As well as being just right to pull out anytime and anywhere due to the compact, travel-friendly packaging, the addition of the E-Z tear edges on the Doodle Roll are a really great idea. With hardly any effort, you are able to rip off a masterpiece and be ready to get started on the next one.
Designed for ages 3 - 8, we have used both Doodle Rolls multiple times and have had excellent results! Whether shared with friends, while traveling (the small Doodle Roll was great for Big Sister E on the recent airplane ride that we took), or just used at home, the convenience and fun has been evident every time.
Made in an environmentally and socially responsible way in the USA, Doodle Rolls are just the thing to feed a child’s imagination on the go. The separate compartments and ability to tear off a finished drawing or re-roll it back in for later are innovative and able to keep all little artists' attention for plenty of time.
Retailing for only $3.99 for the 4" and $4.99 for the 6", small hands won't have a problem opening and closing a Doodle Roll and kids are able to easily clean up afterward. A great idea to have handy in a purse, diaper bag or in the car, the Doodle Roll would also make a nice non-candy addition to an Easter basket this spring.
And, thanks to the generosity of Doodle Roll, one lucky person will be ready for all kinds of games, scribbling and fun as well, because...
One lucky person will win a 4" and a 6" Doodle Roll!
