I have always kept writing supplies in a drawer for the kids, but when I saw the writing boxes that The Activity Mom created, I decided to put boxes together for the kids. No more fighting over envelopes and writing supplies!
Aiden’s box is decorated with his name and ABC stickers.
- envelopes from junk mail
- scrapes of paper
- sticky notes
- a washable marker
On Emily’s box I used stickers to add her name, the words writing box, friends, and family.
Inside her box is:
- an address book I printed for her (that already has the address of her friends and family members)
- fall stationary
- blank note cards to decorate
- some cute animal note cards
- return address labels
- post cards that I created with pictures from the countries we will be learning about
Every week, as part of her handwriting and spelling, she will send Mum-mum a post card from the country we are studying, telling her about something exciting we learned during the week.
Both of the kids have been busy writing! Emily has already gotten quite a few letters ready to mail to her friends. Aiden has used most of his sticky notes ~ posting letters of the alphabet all over the house!
