Doodle Town

 It's been a LONG while since I've shared a "doodle town" because honestly it's been a hot minute since I've drawn new doodles for my own kids.  Darn you, growing up!!!  I had someone email me about these last week which had me thinking it may be time to reshare this oldie but goodie post for those of y'all who never saw it in the first place and/or whose kids are now at great ages for it.  I have always LOVED making these for my own kids and hope that y'all find as much enjoyment in them as my kids have!

HAPPY Thursday, friends!!!

For years and years my kids have been big fans of making "doodle towns".  Pretty much - they describe/request buildings and places, I doodle them out on big paper, they color and decorate them and then we make a town.  So fun, simple and I love how their little imaginations come to life.

Even when their imaginations ask for a Whataburger :)

Sometimes I pull the images out of my own imagination and sometimes (when they ask for things like a waterpark!) I use clipart, book illustrations, stickers, etc. as a guide.

I love seeing the colors they choose and little things they add onto the pictures...

... and especially love it when they line them all up to make one big town. 

We draw all of these using the big roll of art paper and the roll holder from IKEA.  They're cheaper in the store, but if you're not close to one you can find them on Amazon as well.

If you're looking for some inspiration or just a quick and easy project I drew 8 different buildings that you can print off as many times as you like (on regular 8.5 x 11" paper), and then your kids can lay them all together and make any kind of town they want.  

I left some of the signs with purposeful blanks so you (or your kids) can decide what kind of store they want, what they want to name the school, etc. 

I printed a few copies out for my own kids and I'm thinking watercolors would be fun on them as well.

The download is totally free and a teeny tiny token of my appreciation for y'all reading and following along.  I can't wait to see what your kids create.  I'd love it if you'd email me a pic of their creation(s) and/or post a pic on Instagram with the hashtag #momfessionalsdoodletown 

PS - you can find Christmas doodle town printables HERE
