Welcome to Day 25 of the Doodle Day May challenge! If you are new to this challenge, it is quite simple, spend a few minutes each day in May to doodle. You can create your doodle on a computer, in a sketchpad, on a napkin, post it, pancake, or wherever else you can. You don't need a lot of time - just take a few minutes. I post a prompt each day but you don't have to use it. Once you have created a doodle. post it to our Facebook Group page if you are ready to share. If you want to catch up on previous prompts, they are all listed below.

Now, for today...
Today's doodle prompt is SQUARE.

What do you see in your mind when you think of a square? You can doodle something that is normally square shape like a table, picture frame, or pillow or something that isn't normally square shape like an animal, person, meatball...You can use a square as an element in your doodle or as the main focus. You can draw a square and fill it with Zentangles or make a square-ish font, or hat or anything else on the previous prompt list above. Enjoy letting your mind wander and turn a square into whatever you want. You can also create an abstract design of squares of different sizes on the page, just let your pencil go - a page of squares can be very relaxing.

Have fun!
