Getting Creative with Doodle Roll {#Giveaway}

There’s nothing else that my boys love more than drawing…well, maybe drawing the outline of their cars! Oh, and cutting the paper after being drawn on, throw the pieces up in the air, and run away as if nothing happened…my boys love messes, the bigger the better!

As a person who claims herself to be creative, I am always looking for ways to expand my boys’ creativity and imagination. To me, creativity and imagination is as important as going outside to play. I always keep my eyes out for anything creative related, from toys to activities and crafts. This is how I came upon Doodle Roll, a portable activity kit that will make life on the go easier!!


Doodle Roll

Doodle Roll sent us one of their rolls to review and the moment my oldest son saw it he immediately wanted to use it. There is no paper, flat or rolled, that can escape him! He is getting to the age where he has more motor control, which makes drawing even funner than it has ever been.


Doodle Roll

After I gave the boys the go to draw, A. immediately started drawing circles all over the paper. J., monkey say monkey do, decided to follow suit and tried to draw circles…he did great, but they looked more like an oval doodle, but still great for a 2 year old!


Doodle Roll

Doodle Roll is so long, 30 feet, that both my boys can draw on the roll at the same time without fighting…that is until J. decides to go draw where his brother is…then craziness breaks loose and fights start.

It is great seeing their creativity  and imagination at work. A. gets so serious and makes a cute little pout. J. gets serious too, but he gets easily distracted so he’ll draw for a couple of minutes, then roll on his tummy, walk away, and the n he’ll come back and draw for a few minutes, and then he’ll be gone for the rest fo the day. He still has a short attention span…oh well.

What makes Doodle Roll so awesome?

Simply the fact that Doodle Roll offers 30ft of creative fun and millions of laughs is what makes it so awesome! Plus, if you turn your Doodle Roll around you have 30 more ft of imagination!

I also like the idea of using the paper as a banner in my office! A. and J. decided to fill all 30 ft with circles!

I love to display my boys’ art….I have it in my room, office, fridge, kitchen…and I would have it all over my house if I could! There’s nothing better than the art of your children proudly displayed at home for everyone to see!

    My son doesn’t draw yet since he’s just 1 year old but I’m planning to teach him to use a crayon soon!

    I keep some of my son’s drawings, but not all. I try to remember to date them and then save at least one from every month.

    I have six kiddos 4-13 in age and have kept quite a few “works of art” over the years. Coloring, drawing, painting is a fav in our home. The Doodle Roll is clever! Thanks for the giveaway!

    I keep the some of them, not all. I like when they’re of our dog.

    I don’t keep them, but I do reuse them in a variety of ways (as gift cards, wrapping paper, etc.)

    I keep some and take digital pictures of the kids holding others and then recycle

    We keep a folder of the best artwork. My favorite is a colorful very hungry caterpillar!

    We don’t have children, but our niece likes to send us home with picures when we visit her.
