Tuesday Teach Them This: Double Doodle (Fun Activity)

Double Doodle……..

Who knew?

I never heard of it before but it sure does look interesting enough to try and teach my children to do this.

When I was young my Dad was *unique* (that’s a good word to use for it.) 

But he would make me do *unique* things like………

Say my alphabets backwards

Count change back correctly and

Write with both hands…………

at FIVE and SIX years old.

And if I didn’t do any of those correctly…….I’d be in big trouble.

Well needless to say I became ambidextrous. Having the ability to write with both hands…..well……………….

Today while teaching my 4 year old how to write (he is a true left handy) I found that my skills were much needed. I could actually understand from his perspective as I had to write with my left hand today to teach him the proper way to hold his pencil and slant his paper.

At any rate………..

Double Doodle is something like that. Drawing with both hands at the same time – symmetrically!

I think it will be a great challenge to teach your children to do this. It actually will be strongly working both sides of their brains. Give it a try.
