You know that I’ve been prepping for summer, and part of that has included taking stock of our supply situation and making sure these are organized and as useful and accessible as possible. It’s really important to me that we’re continuing to learn – but I also want to spend as much time outside as possible. Having a way to use these materials outside is kind of a requirement, and I was struggling to come up with the best possible solution. Enter Ikea.
Wandering through Ikea, my eyes landed on this organizer tray and I immediately thought “what can I do with that?” I stared at it for a bit, walked away, came back – and then I saw the lid for it. Once I noticed that it had a flat top lid that could definitely be used as a writing surface I could envision all of the learning materials inside, and the rest was a no-brainer.
So what do we keep in this thing? Anything that might be needed for learning activities:
- Dry erase markers
- Glue sticks
- Pencil sharpeners
- Flash cards
- Learning games
I added a motivational quote on the lid as a reminder and can’t wait to keep the learning going, while we’re on the go!
