My girls love to draw or just get creative any way they can. I enjoy knowing I can find activities that keep them busy and out of trouble. Therefore I was curious to see how well they would do at a busy restaurant with the Doodle Roll.

Our Thoughts on Doodle Roll
My husband and I decided we were due for a family dinner out. So, we loaded up the kids and set out to eat one Friday night. Once we finally found a restaurant that could sit us all together in under 25 minutes, the girls pulled out the Doodle Rolls. JJ was given the 6″ roll and immediately began opening it. She and her brother took a minute before realizing how simple the concept actually was. The paper on the roll actually feeds through the container that holds it and there is a opening over the crayon portion of the item. I set up Princess with her 4″ roll and the girls were soon drawing away.
As a mom, I thought the fact that the roll and, more importantly, the crayons stayed in the plastic container was ingenious! We are constantly chasing crayons underneath the table when we go out and it was nice having them contained. And, as if just to test the durability of its plastic casing, somehow both girls dropped their Doodle Roll underneath the table. But, rather than having a ream of paper strewn across the floor, they were able to get down and grab the plastic casing and get back to drawing.
The Doodle Roll was successful at keeping the girls entertained before our dinner arrived and they liked having an easy clean up. Once our food arrived we simply rolled the paper back into the casing, put the crayons away and closed the lid, and put the rolls away for later. Quick and easy!
