Learning to write with Aqua Doodle
My lil one is now 21 months old and he is learning to write .. on the wall .. on the cushions .. on his hands and feet .. on the floor .. on his grandma's legs ... everywhere!
We started off with pencils and paper, then upgraded to pens cos the pencils easily breaks off with lil one handling it so rough. The headache with pens is that .. you know lah .. cannot be rubbed off! So we have lines drawn all over grandma's house!
Hubby spotted this really cool toy for him to learn to write. Its called the Aqua Doodle! I normally do not allow hubby to buy anything expensive (by my standards la .. cos I am an alcheapo mommie mah) but this one - I must say is a GOOD BUY! Well done hubby! I simply love it.
Its basically a mat that can only be drawn using a marker filled with just water. After scribbling or drawing, the image dries off by itself in a minute or two and the mat is all clear again for new scribbling!
Lil one has been busy with this toy since we got it for him two weeks ago from Jusco. But of course having "lil monster" as a nickname has its reason ... my lil one decided to test out the marker in his mouth and realised that it has got water .. and since then, he would try to put the marker in his mouth and suck the water out like as if its his Barney water tumbler! Headache!
