World's Largest Doodle*

Sometimes it’s the simple things that are the most awesome. Ben Nelson applied as a Maker with the name D.I.Y. Dad and Friends and wanted to have something at Maker Faire titled “World’s Largest Doodle*” and it turned out amazing.

Ben’s got a great write-up on his blog about it. In a 20’x20′ booth he covered the floor with paper and provided 800 crayons for kids and adults to have some fun making drawings, doodles, art, or whatever.

The one suggestion we had for Ben’s project was to point a time lapse camera at it, so we could see it fill in over time, and he did just that. Here’s a video from the first day.

*Disclaimer: As Ben notes, this may not be the “World’s Largest Doodle” but it is the largest Doodle we’ve had at Maker Faire Milwaukee. Of course there’s always next year. 🙂
