Spring is definitely here and finally, May is here. I debated the theme for this month’s doodle challenge and I almost went with flowers, but then I got a little craving. So the theme for the May Doodle Challenge is all things food! Yay for food doodles!
If you follow me on Instagram you’re probably familiar with Oodles of Doodles Challenge. You don’t have to be on Instagram to join us in the challenge! Check out doodle a day prompts below and join us this month! You can do this challenge in your bullet journal or use our free doodle printable to play along!

MAY DOODLE CHALLENGE
Doodling is a great way to relax and take your mind off things that might be eating at you. Whether you consider yourself an artist or you’re just getting started drawing, working on doodles is the perfect thing to do!
You don’t have to be “great at drawing” to doodle. You just have to take a deep breath, relax, and let yourself be creative! I know I always feel better after I take a little break to be creative in some way.
DOODLE A DAY FREE PRINTABLE FOR MAY
Many of us do our daily doodle in our bullet journals. You can set your doodling up any way that you want! I sketch a grid layout in a separate notebook from my daily journal. It’s a simple layout and I like the way it looks when it’s complete.
But the best part of doodle challenges is that you can take the drawing prompts and do what works best for you! Whether you use a grid or you just randomly place your doodles on a page for the month, your creativity is really your only limit!
You can use your bullet journal, our free printable page, or even do digital doodles! It’s really a challenge for everyone, no matter what style you prefer!
The same goes for your doodling supplies. You can use everything from a sketch pencil to colored pencils, markers, pens, or even crayons! This month I got some brand new Flair pens that I plan to use! I’ve been a huge fan of Flair pens since my days teaching in the classroom. I still can’t resist them!
If you’re a fan of using printables in your journal or you just want to have separate pages for your doodles, I’ve created a FREE printable page for the May Oodles of Doodles challenge!
It includes a box for each day of the challenge with the prompts already written in for you! All you have to do is your daily doodle! And if you’re on Instagram, use the hashtag #oodlesofdoodles and tag me @the.petite.planner to share a photo of your doodle!
