Creativity 521 #112 - Fun toddler activities {Review & Giveaway of Fiddle & Doodle}

Posted by ~Summer~ on June 21, 2017
in ,

With a toddler that sticks to me nearly every second of the day, it's been really tough trying to find time to sit down for a nice art and craft session with the kids. He tends to destroy, or eats, everything he sees so it's a challenge trying to stop him from ruining our moment or getting all the toxic in his tummy. That also means I'm guilty as charged and haven't really exposed this little one to as much art and craft as his sisters did when they were his age.

So, I really needed a surge of motivation this month and was on the lookout for new materials and activities to enthrall the kids and was very excited when Fiddle & Doodle sent over their products - the Dabber Dot Markers starter kit and the Match & earn Puzzles.

In today's Creativity 521, I'll be sharing more about how they have provided us with hours of fun and for those who are interested to win a set, there will be a giveaway at the end of the post too!

See how colourful and vibrant everything looks? The kids were thrilled even once they laid their eyes on these new materials and couldn't wait to start exploring more!



Dabber Dot Markers Starter Kit

If you are wondering what dot markers are, they are basically markers with big, round sponge tip applicators that make perfect dots. You can dab, dot, mix, blend or layer them to create your very own masterpiece and the best thing is dot markers can provide lots of colourful fun but are generally easy to clean up.

The Dabber Dot Markers come in a box of 8 vibrant colours - Red, Blue, Yellow, Orange, Pink, Green, Brown, Purple. They are ergonomically designed for little hands and are easy to hold, paint and draw. Even though it is stated that the markers are suitable for children aged 3 and above, the 18-month-old toddler can also grip them really well and he is very excited that he can make colourful dots so easily! Well, we just have to make sure that he doesn't swallow them, right? Anyway, parents with curious little ones will feel more assured knowing that Dabber Dot Markers have been lab-tested and certified toxic free by a toxicologist.

Inside the starter kit, besides the markers, you can also find an activity pad with over 30 activity sheets including alphabets, numbers and colouring fun. The 4-year-old was delighted with the pad because not only was she able to use the dot markers to form letters, she could also practise her letter recognition, phonics and learn to spell new words too.


So while the toddler was happy to be just dotting away on a piece of blank paper, it was the little sister who enjoyed the activity sheets most and had fun making her own rainbow coloured alphabets. While they both had lots of fun, we also realised that they eventually stained their hands pretty much with the markers and this took a while to wash off too. Oh well, it was still very worthwhile for the much needed and long awaited art session for the kids.

Match & Learn Puzzles

Even though puzzles might be far too challenging for the 1-year-old now, the two sisters definitely enjoy trying to solve all kinds of puzzles. The Match & Learn Puzzles consist of the 26 alphabets and each puzzle set has the uppercase alphabet, matching lowercase alphabet and the picture of an object/animal that begins with the corresponding letter.




For the preschooler who is learning her alphabet, has difficulty differentiating her 'b's from 'd's and is keen to try to spell new words, these puzzles intrigue her and is a good way for her to strengthen her foundation while playing and having fun at the same time. For the primary preschooler, while the puzzles are way too easy for her, she still enjoys fishing for the right piece from the sea of puzzles and have a nice, bonding session with her littler sister.


I believe it's always best to learn through fun, don't you think so? I'm glad that both the dot markers and puzzles are providing the kids with lots of educational fun, teaching them about spelling and alphabets while helping to improve their dexterity and hand-eye coordination.

Hopefully, this will spur us on to keep our creative sessions going because as tough as it is getting to be, I really hope to keep up with the Creativity 521 series.
