Our new blackboard…

Sam and I went to a toy shop and they had this for the little ones to play with…

I couldn’t stop thinking about how much Sam had enjoyed it, so…

We cleared the space and got ourselves ready:

We left it overnight to allow the paint to dry thoroughly.

Then, in the morning, Sam and Jeremy had fun!:

Doodle Doug fun

We found this Doodle Doug in a charity shop for £1. Today we decided to see what it could do…

 

It’s pretty cool! You could make larger sheets to use for wrapping paper. Or for fantastic backgrounds to paintings. Or…

…a frog and a turtle! Of course!

Will come back to the Doodle Doug again soon I think…
