HELP! Which is better – DOODLE / CARTOONS or CARTOONING? Please comment with your thoughts! Starting in September I am going to lead projects in an after school program for children 2nd through 5th grade. Should I do funny stories encouraging children to finish them off doodling or should I teach step by step cartooning?

Doodling is such a carefree happy activity that I can’t make up my mind. Should I give them a choice?

This is BULLY BUSTER, one of my favorite Color and Write Story protagonists. I am going to try him out June 15th at TelHi. I have created a summer event for 2nd to 5th graders. I hope the children will find learning how to draw cartoon characters interesting. I will give them a felt tipped pen to draw over the guidelines. If it is a success, I will move on to working with them on their own characters. I will post the results. Fingers crossed!!

This is the second page of my BULLY BUSTER AND THE PUPPIES coloring story. On this page Bully Buster the dragon robot superhero confronts the meanie big bad dog who tries to steal from the puppies.

This is a story that you get to write by filling in the speech bubbles. As this is for children just beginning to write, I have filled in some of the speech bubbles. You can say any silly thing you wish with the rest of the speech bubbles and make the story your own. Download this and more coloring stories for free on my Bully Buster page.

I created the character Bully Buster after a nine year-old library visitor requested a story about a dragon robot. You can write in the bubbles and make the story your own.

This is the third page of my BULLY BUSTER AND THE CRAB coloring story. Bully Buster is a dragon robot super hero who flies around the world stopping bullies of any kind. In this story it is a huge bullying fish that definitely has evil actions on his mind. Bully Buster saves the crab and finds himself at a decorator crab decorating party. Who knew their appreciation would tickle so much?
