Oodles of Doodles Markers can be used just as you would any other marker, but what makes them special is the ability to draw or write on smooth surfaces and wipe them off when you are done! This creates new opportunities to create and personalize. One of the most practical uses of these markers is to write your name on glasses at a party. I am definitely going to leave them out for guests to personalize their glasses at our next gathering!
They are also great for leaving messages on your mirrors, whether it be "I Love You," or "Good Luck," or a silly smile with arms and hands like I drew for my family that says "Make Someone Smile Today." My children can't read yet, so the silly drawing made them laugh, and my toddler went up to it and said, "Hug!"
My morning cup of coffee also took on a new personality when I used these markers to draw on my mug. You may surprise somebody in your home with a greeting, or just give yourself some extra encouragement when you need it. I hope you enjoy these two videos with coffee cup drawings that also show how the markers wipe off with a damp cloth:
When paired with a piece of acrylic (some picture frames come with plastic windows, or you can order a piece of acrylic here, or a glass window would work), the Oodles of Doodles Markers can be used as an educational tool. I created a paper with the alphabet printed on it for my son to practice tracing. See the photos below of him tracing the letters and then proudly showing off his work. He also often asks me how to draw things, so I created some simplified drawings for him to trace and understand how his drawings can be made up of simple shapes like rectangles, circles, lines, etc... This proved to work well. Immediately after he traced the drawing of the lion, he drew a lion by himself on paper - these markers work like a normal marker would on paper, too.
Once we finished practicing writing and drawing, we used the acrylic to draw funny faces! See the links in the text for where to purchase Oodles of Doodles Markers!
