This super pack of 50 double-sided wipe-clean cards comes with its own pen and is a great activity for car journeys, doodling about in queues or just the kitchen table. Young children can follow the prompts of the picture whilst the older children can follow written prompts. Best of all you can wipe clean and doodle all over again.

Holiday Doodle Cards
I gave a set of Holiday and Monster Doodle cards to my 2 nephews, aged 5 and 7 to use on a recent camping trip. I had always thought they looked good, but the proof of the pudding was definitely getting the boys to have a go. They loved them, when they woke at 'silly O'clock' instead of wanting go out on their bikes, they sat and doodled for almost an hour! Halfway through the day, they sat and doodled! What's more, the adults doodled, the teenagers (aged 16-19) doodled and so did the Grandparents, so an all round hit! If you need more than 1 pen, then my advice is buy more than 1 pack!! they can be mixed up in the box and it really doesn't matter at all!

Excellent Idea. The children really loved them. In fact buying another pack as back up! Agree with other review that 2 pens would be a ideal, but in the mean time have popped into a stationers and purchased a suitable pen.

holiday doodles review
These were a great buy and my boys spent ages "doodling" on them. The fact they can be wiped and re-used was brilliant. The only downside is that there is only 1 pen which caused arguments and it did run out quickly.
