Megan is getting into artsy things so we are breaking out some fun materials. One of the new things we have been trying out are TaDoodles markers. We've used the TaDoodles crayons before but this was a first for marker use. I have to say - not my favorite thing. Consider this my own personal product review... They are cute and Megan loves them. They are "chunky" so that little hands can grip them (they say they are good for 18+ months). My issue.... if you don't hold them just right, then you don't mark on the paper. I love that they don't have caps and don't dry out.... BUT, it's hard to teach a child that you have to hold them a certain way to use them.
At any rate - we had fun making doodles together. But for anyone out there thinking about getting some -just know they aren't as easy to use as they might seem. They are fun, but it takes a lot of work to help them learn how to use them.
