Doodle Games Activity Book by Joe Rhatigan, illustrations by Anthony Owsley
We’ve loved this book, particularly because it facilitates a fun parent-child time. JJ and dad so far love The Mutant Game (players give each other weird mutant animal combos to draw), Doodle Dare Circles (draw as many things as you can using only circles), and Squiggle Masterpieces (squiggles that become something wonderful).
Get moving with this hilarious, fast-paced game. Call out the the actions shown on the card (such as high-five and pound it) and if you match with another player, you both do the action. SO FUN!!
