A recent article in the Wall Street Journal spoke to the power of the doodle, and how doodling has been shown help people stay focused, grasp new concepts and retain information. Drawing and doodling can help people learn in new ways, and our new Brainfood Doodle Mat series supports this idea in more than one way.
Brainfood Doodle Mats: Animals and Brainfood Doodle Mats: Vehicles both contain 50 tear-off placemats, filled with fun facts and trivia, along with space and encouragement to doodle about the given subject. These placemats are the perfect answer for that crazy “witching hour,” when parents are trying to prepare dinner and kids are tired, hungry and looking for something to do.
To promote the launch of these new mats, we’re offering a free download from each: the Gecko page from Brainfood Doodle Mats: Animals and the Space Shuttle page from Brainfood Doodle Mats: Vehicles. Get them here:
