Make your own portable writing center

writing center

Oh darn, my step by step is on my lost camera…… WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, it’s super simple.  Get a metal box (for sturdiness), newspaper, and mod podge.

Tear the newspaper into little bitty squares.  Mod podge it all over.  I wrote a letter for the top modeling proper letter writing form.

I added a frequently written words cards.  It included things like people they write to, things they talk about a lot, and extra space to add more words.

I also included clearance stationary I’ve been picking up at Michael’s.  I wait until it’s in the 50 cents or less bin for a pack of 6-8.  They care more about quantity than quality.  I plan to eventually add in some address stickers and real stamps to let them mail cards to their grandparents.

And now they’re running around writing letters.

  1. Letter writing is becoming a “lost art” due to email, ya know? Which is very sad- at least your kiddos will keep the “art” alive!

    (Oh, I had a dream last night that I came to your house and hung out with you, and a couple other bloggers and their kiddos. Then all our kiddos were ring bearers and flower girls in a wedding…What did I EAT before I went to bed?)

  2. I think this is a super idea! If you wanted to link it up at Look! What We Did! (lookwhatwedid-homeschool.blogspot.com), we'd welcome it 🙂
