The kids and I had a very doodly March Break. We had several events planned and the doodle bots were the activity of choice. It's a good activity for mixed age groups and is always a lot of fun.
We held two workshops in Lombardy and Elgin for the Rideau Lakes Library. We were part of their Mighty Mini Makers! program. At each workshop we built some Electro-cards and made doodle bots as the paint was drying. The Electro-cards are always fun. Theme of the day was hockey nets. Libraries are our favourite places and we always love being asked to come work in one. Kids love being encouraged to doodle and get creative in the library. In the words of one participant, this workshop was "AWESOME!".
Our next event was the Lanark Community Programs March Break day camp. We had loads of fun building doodle bots with both staff and campers. The campers showed great focus and engagement when working on their doodle bots. The Camp Director said it was the highlight of their week.
Our Maker Junior workshop was engaging, educational and fun for kids and adults. It was the highlight of our march break day camp.

Andrew had come up with some great games to play with the doodle bots once they were made. I really liked the Sumo inspired game. Very simple and fun to play!
Thanks to everyone who participated in our workshops. It is always a treat for us to meet with so many fun and creative people.
