Fun pictures around the outside are easy to copy, ideal for creative inspiration. Kids can also trace letter and number shapes inside the edges of the mat, learning to copy basic writing strokes. Fill the Aquadoodle pen with water, run the nib over the mat and see your drawings appear like magic in colour! Once the water has dried, drawings fade away, ready to start all over again! No mess, no ink, no stains! Suitable for ages 18 months and over. Mess free, colourful, creative fun! Kids will enjoy hours of fun with the water filled pen revealing colours and shapes on the Aquadoodle mats, then watching their doodles magically fade away to start all over again! The portable mats mean that this creative fun can be had anywhere!
