Paper Towel Doodles

We're easing back into this Monday, ever so simply, with oodles of doodles. This is a project for all doodlers  --- big and small.

Continue below for paper towel-doodle-ideas...

Color in a pattern pretty enough to frame or use patterned paper toweling to make dot-to-dots for the smallest of artists. With these, it's simple to respond to "more" by placing two dots to connect on sheet after sheet for endless toddler dot to dot mazes. It's great for fine motor skills, concentration and problem solving.  
I'm a doodler but, I hadn't seen this pattern in our paper toweling until I found our daughter uncovering the most beautiful doodle pattern that looked quilted. For bigger doodles, have your artists find their own patterns, just because.  Since these had a quilt like quality to them, we framed one by sewing it on to heavy card stock + slipped it into a frame. Why not use this artwork as origami paper or... to personalize doll bedding.  I'd love to see what your household doodlers come up with! 

If you're new to willowday, I like to share super simple projects or printables on "Making Mondays." What can be easier than a project using household objects. Add you and create away! Happy Monday Making!

  1. I LOVE THIS PROJECT! There I said it loudly! It's really amazing WillowDay!

    1. Thank you so much, Ana! I can't wait to see what you do with it. It was actually my daughter who one day came to me with this amazing patterned paper -- I was so blown away by it, we framed it immediately. I also wish I had thought of it when the kids were tiny -- perfect for endless dot to dots ... drawn journeys, etc. Thanks so much!

  2. Bingo! I know what We 're going to do this weekend! Thanks Gina :)

    1. It's so very nice to hear from you Tiku Tiku! I'd love to see what you do! My warmest to you and your family.


Thank you!
