Fun Activity:

Can you create a piece of doodle art? All you need is a piece of paper and some drawing materials (markers, pencil crayons etc). Simple draw some squiggly lines on the paper and fill in the blank spaces with colours. Can you take this one step further and find a hidden monster or critter in your doodle? Doodling is great as you never know what might develop!
