Most of us are familiar with the Magnadoodle and possible with the Aquadoodle. I have a special fondness for the Aquadoodle Wall Mat. I've written before about the benefits of using a chalkboard or paper mounted on the wall to strengthen hands, arms, cross body lines, and help your child with pre-writing skills. We've been using the Aquadoodle to connect dots, practice drawing vertical and horizontal lines, and drawing shapes. It's a great place for preschoolers to practice writing their name or letters since it's very easy cleanup (none is pretty easy, right?).
And since it just uses water, no worries about spills. And mounting? Wall putty...super easy to move from location to location without leaving marks on the wall. Looking for an activity for kids while you are making dinner? You can use paintbrushes and water, or even let them "fingerpaint" with water minus the mess of paint.
I found mine at Target, but I also saw that AsSeenOnTV.com is offering a free Travel Doodle and pens when you buy the Wall Aquadoodle.
Hip-Hip-Hooray for another successfully spent dollar. :)
