Carpet doodling was an unexpected activity that came out of some free play.
Henry and I scored a bunch of old utensils and cookie cutters from my great-grandmother’s house. They’ve been in a bucket around the house and played with nearly every day.
As we were playing one day, we discovered that they could make marks, or doodles, in the carpet rugs!
This lead to some exploration.
The cookie cutters made the best doodles in the carpet.
Hearts, circles, ovals, and school bells (Henry told me what the bell was even).
Lots of flowers (excuse me, Henry says they’re clouds).
(It was hard to get a photo of the doodles that were made.)
Henry tried some of the utensils.
Some made their mark, others did not.
After doodling, the marks had to be erased.
This was best done with the backhoe.
But other utensils were tried, as well.
Here’s a monkey doodle I made.
