I think these Tomy Aquadoodle drawing mats are absolute genius.
You can forget about having to cover the walls and floor (and everything else for that matter) with newspaper, getting all the paints out only for your child to get bored after five minutes and decide they don't want to do painting anymore.
If you have a Tomy Aquadoodle mat then you just need to get the mat out, fill up the 'magic' pen with water and your young Picasso can doodle away to their heart's content whilst they create artistic masterpieces.
The water in the pen will reveal hidden numbers, shapes, letters and pictures too and as the water dries the images fade, leaving a new blank canvas to draw on all over again.
This Tomy Aquadoodle Classic mat comes with two magic pens and two stencils and is available for free in-store collection at your nearest Tesco, or home delivery if you want to spend an extra £5 (although quite why you would when there's a Tesco every 100 yards, I don't know!).
