Doodle Washington D.C.
Our price: $11.95
Draw colorful flags in front of the embassies, doodle a sculpture for the National Gallery Sculpture Garden, draw plants for the Botanic Garden, and put lights on the National Christmas Tree. With these prompts and many more, Doodle Washington D.C. will encourage your child to imagine life in the U.S. national capital. Some doodles are specific to Washington D.C., such as doodling a horse for General Grant’s statue, while others are universally fun, like decorating the cupcakes with lots of colors. But all of the doodles will inspire your child’s creativity and imagination.
Doodle Washington D.C. is refreshingly innocent and child-friendly. However, families who do not celebrate Halloween may prefer to skip a page or two.

review by Momz in the Know
”I like that children can complete the pages in this book independently and then the completed pages can be used as springboard to further discuss the topics with a parent or other adult. This activity book is a fun way to introduce students in lower grades to geography and history.”Read the Review
This is a fun doodle book to incorporate into art each week. My daughter is not familiar with washington d.c. yet but still enjoys doodling what the instructions suggest with little help from me.
I think Doodle Washington D.C. looks like fun no matter what age you are. Unfortunately, my daughter just scribbles the bare minimum on each page, and doesn't seem terribly interested. I am hoping over the years if we keep giving her opportunities to draw, she will eventually put more effort into it. The Washington D.C. topic is timely because we have been following the politics closely this year. She likes to hear about and draw things she recognizes.
This book is interesting, but a little to advanced for my 1st grader. He does not understand fully what DC is yet, so its hard to draw about a place he does not know about.
Here I thought it was going to be a coloring book but it is filled with lots of activities along the way while learning about the US capital.
This is a nice break up for my 1st grader. I love how you can turn a fun drawing into a history lesson.
