The two year old loves to draw...
... but she can be a bit indiscriminate when it comes to with what and on what.
The last thing I want to do is discourage her creative exploration (even if it is with baked beans on my kitchen work surface) but if I can encourage an activity that she enjoys that also means I won't have to scrub colourful ink splodges out of my living room rug, then that is a wining solution.
The Tomy Aquadoodle Desk retails at £29.99.
The doodling surface is double sided giving two choices of colour and fits into a recess in the desk top. There is also a nice little recess to house the Aquadoodle pen when not in use.
The pen is simply filled with water and mess free doodling can commence.
I don't expect the Aquadoodle Desk to completely take the place of traditional drawing materials (or her more experimental choice of art working) but it is a very handy, instantly accessible, mess free outlet for her creative urges.
The doodles do not last for very long. They disappear leaving a clean surface ready for more mess free fun!
