Drawing and Writing Caddy
I bought this utensil caddy as an impulse buy for my little one's birthday party this past spring. After the party was over I was going to put it away, knowing it would probably not get much use... but as it sat on our kitchen table I remembered being inspired by a beautiful Writing Caddy on the blog Playful Learning.
So I filled the utensil caddy with some basic drawing and writing tools and ever since, the little one has used it non-stop. It has visited the coffee table, the kitchen table and even our patio table. The time she spends drawing and practicing her letters has increased greatly. And she is loving her independence!
Some materials I've included:
Paper, in basic white, as well as other colors and in an array of sizes
A small notebook
Thin and thick markers
Hole Puncher (much loved item after this activity)
The possibilities are endless!
So, if you have a utensil caddy laying around, or if you find one on sale in these futile summer days, give it a try!
