Come to the OKIDO Monster Arcade at Doodle Bar!

OKIDO is delighted to announce their involvement in The Big Draw this October. Come on down to the Doodle Bar and take part in the wackiest, craziest, Monster Arcade you have ever seen. The arcade games are suitable for children of all ages and young-at-heart-adults alike. This is a family friendly afternoon!

Also on hand will be the current issue of OKIDO plus back issues to buy and lots of print sheets from the printers to create and play with.

Okido Monster Arcade

Pin the Bone on the Skeleton

Players pin the correct monster bones onto the monster skeleton!

Electric Poo

‘Draw’ with the metal hoop through the monster’s body to trace where the monster’s poo should go!

Draw the senses

Draw what your senses would see, hear, taste, touch and feel and pin them into the correct place on the monster!

Shadow Drawing

Have your profile drawn by an Okido human using a torch and a pen then turn your face into a crazy Okido monster!

Throw the Organs into the Body

Rummage through the monsters organs and toss them into the correct place on the monster’s body!

Spin the Wheel

Spin the monster’s wheel to discover your monster super powers!

Make Yourself a Monster

Draw a monster in chalk and then pop your head through the hole to become an Okido monster yourself!

We’ll also have original doodle artwork by the Okido artists on the Doodle Bar walls for Wandsworth Open House, and our customers will be welcome to add their own touch! Drawing activities for children will be available using uncut Okido magazine pages fresh from the printers, and prints from Okido artists and magazines will be on sale.

Well Kneaded will be serving up organic firebread from 1pm on the beach – both kids and adult sizes available!

This event is free and all are welcome!
