Gyrograph

It's spinny.

A rectangular tray has a two inch depression which snugly fits a standard sheet of foolscap.
The four corners of the tray each house a spinning top and a toothed zip strap to spin the tops up to maximum speed.

When released, the tops race towards one another to ricochet madly off of each other.

The point upon which each top spins is one of many small replaceable ball point gel pens or felt markers.

No two doodles created by the kids will ever be the same.

       Can we add more tops once the first four are going? Oh, can we, can we? Pretty please?!+

       I'm afraid that that would voilate the laws of gyravity.   

       Nothing to do with rendering Greek Sandwiches, then?

       It works! Nice link Mr. Kito.   

       No actual Gyros were eaten in the making of this idea.   

       Next: citygraph: shoes with pens.
