Kadoodle Kids Inspires Imagination & Creativity

Craft kits are a great way to keep your kids busy while inspiring creativity. Kadoodle Kids just debuted their new product line comprised of four specially themed kits that let kids design masks for themselves and their toys. Featuring markers, glitter pens, pouches and paint stampers, the kits are the perfect way to spark imagination and artistic play for children in the age of COVID.

“Kadoodle Kids lets children’s imaginations shine,” said Jodi Okun, a seasoned retailer. “It’s a creative outlet for kids. Easy art projects they can complete on their own or with a parent.”

Now available for sale at, the series includes the holiday-themed “Color a Mask Chanukah Kit,” which comes with two dreidels, and “Color a Mask Christmas Kit,” featuring a mini-stocking mask holder. Also available are “Doll/ Stuffie and Me” kits, available in unicorn or dinosaur sets. Created by three mothers, Kadoodle Kids offers fun, educational and tactile experiences that get them away from phone, computer and television screens for hours.

“It’s a great opportunity for them to put down their phones and gadgets and go back to playing,” said Lyss Stern, an entrepreneur who lives in NYC with her husband and three kids. “Kadoodle Kids’ masks allow children to use their brains, creativity, fine motor skills and express their emotions through decoration and design. Plus, as kids get more engrossed in playing with the kits, mom and dad get a rest and peace of mind that their children are engaged in something meaningful.”

The mask kits make the perfect gifts for kids this holiday season. Both holiday kits, available in toddler, child and tween sizes, are on sale for $19.99 while “Doll/ Stuffie & Me” kits, available in toddler and child sizes, are $29.99. Additional masks can be purchased for $8.

Pam Mandell, a mom of two and speech language pathologist with 20 years of experience working with kids: “Children need an outlet to let their imaginations roam free without pressure from the outside world … where they can be comfortable in being themselves and complete art activities on their own. These projects will enable children to believe in themselves and their own abilities and build confidence for the future.”

Providing children with activities that allow for creativity and self-expression during the pandemic is especially important to the women, who have witnessed first-hand the effects of shutdowns and social distancing. Kids are away from their friends, familiar routines, daily exercise and dependent on computers and phones for human contact outside the home. “Kadoodle Kids brings them happiness in a very unsettling time,” says Stern.
