At Adinvita Private School in Odessa, TX, creativity and innovation take center stage during their annual Entrepreneur Day. The event, held this year at MKA Special Occasions, allowed prekindergarten through eighth-grade students to showcase their entrepreneurial spirit and business ideas. Among the many impressive projects, two young sisters, Penelope and Persephone Nunez, co-founders of Doodle Bunnies, stood out for their dedication, teamwork, and ingenuity.
Seven-year-old Penelope, a first grader at Adinvita, designed an original coloring book featuring her artwork that an experienced graphic designer polished for print production. The final product included various engaging activities, such as a Mad Lib, crossword puzzle, word search, connect the dots, tic-tac-toe, and a doodle yourself page. Penelope’s coloring book, printed professionally, came to life with her inspiring quote, “Art is like a rainbow. It’s for everyone to enjoy and share! You don’t have to be a grown-up or a famous painter to make beautiful art. So, grab your colors, and let’s make the world our canvas together!”
Meanwhile, Persephone, a five-year-old kindergartner, repurposed old and new crayons into custom-shaped Doodle Crayons, including letters, 3D animals, bunnies, robots, and unicorns. The crayons were soaked, unwrapped, broken, and baked at 275 degrees before being molded into unique shapes. Persephone’s project, which garnered over $300 in pre-orders before the event, was inspired by her belief that “every crayon has a story, and every doodle is a world waiting to be explored!”
Although they worked on separate projects, the Nunez sisters supported each other and offered package deals, including a discounted coloring book with a minimum order of Doodle Crayons. Penelope also included small samples of Doodle Crayons with each full-priced Doodle Bunnies Coloring Book purchase.
Linda Subia, the school’s founder, and Amanda Tijerina, co-founder, emphasized the importance of Young Entrepreneur Day in fostering creativity, innovation, and problem-solving skills. They highlighted how students like Penelope and Persephone learned to adapt to challenges while creating their projects and how the event encouraged collaboration between parents and their children.
Adinvita Private School’s focus on individual learning and hands-on experiences, rather than state tests, makes it an ideal choice for parents seeking a unique and enriching educational environment for their children. The success of young entrepreneurs like Penelope and Persephone Nunez at the Entrepreneur Day is a testament to the school’s dedication to fostering creativity and empowering students to pursue their passions.
