Giveaway: Writing Caddy from Playful Learning

This giveaway has ended. Check back on Saturday, December 4 for the winner!

Welcome to Simple Living Media’s Home for the Holidays! We’ve got 25 giveaways across the entire network this week to give you plenty of chances to win a great gift, just in time for the holidays.

Today I’m giving away a Writing Caddy from Playful Learning.

This sweet caddy is practical–holding all your child’s art and writing supplies in one place. But it is also beautiful, inspiring your little one to sit down and create more often.

Valued at $128, this caddy is the perfect present for the budding author or artist in your life.

Learn more about this inspiring gift and how to win it.

When I first pulled the writing caddy out of its delivery box, I honestly let out a little squeal of delight. It is well-crafted and lovely, and my mind could already envision my six-year-old excitedly opening it on Christmas morning.

The caddy measures 10 inches square by 10 inches wide, and comes with several movable dividers that you can alter to fit your child’s writing needs. Organizational enthusiasts like myself will love that feature! I dislike toys and supplies that have multiple small parts, which often end up all over the table in a mess. But this writing station keeps everything together.

The sturdy handle makes it easy to carry upstairs and back down again without spilling–my son does much of his creating upstairs during rest time, so I know our caddy will be trekked up and down often.

Check out all the writing goodness that comes ready to stock your writing caddy (pictured above):

  • 20 Color Grip Markers
  • 12 Metallic Colored EcoPencils
  • 20 Junior Grip Triangular Colored Pencils
  • Grip Set (pencil, eraser and pencil sharpener)
  • 742 Alphabet Stickers
  • 16 Colored Crayon Rocks
  • 8 Blank Cards and Envelopes
  • Alphabet Stamps
  • Multi-Colored Ink Pad
  • Alphabet Chart by Handwriting Without Tears

These are high-quality supplies, not the cheap version that will break within a week of use.

The Playful Learning website was created by educator Mariah Bruehl, a mother of two young girls who wanted to translate her professional experience as a teacher to her time at home as a parent. Playful Learning owns a brick and mortar store in Sag Harbor, New York and also makes some of her favorite items available for online purchase.

Do your children love kits assembled in cute cases or bags? If so, they’ll adore the Playful Learning botanist’s kit, sewing kit, and tool kit. You can even purchase an empty caddy for your own projects or order a complete writing center for your home.

The writing caddy from Playful Learning is an heirloom piece–one you and your child will enjoy for years. Made from the highest quality materials, it would make a wonderful gift for the little writer in your life.

One Simple Homeschool reader will win your own Writing Caddy from Playful Learning!

There are many more things we want to explore such as tie dye, knitting, so on. Right now, he is into creating the pretend journey with tools of crayons, color papers, strings, hand-made puppets, whatever he could think of. His little brother is following in his steps. The Writing Caddy would definitely come in handy for them (and yes, I admit it would help keep art supplies organized!) Thanks for sharing.

  62. I’ve seen this caddy and I think it is fantastic. My daughter is definitely a budding artist. She draws all day long. She loves to do anything artsy (it’s definitely hereditary 😉 ).

  63. I tweeted!

  64. My daughter will be three in a couple of months, but she thinks she’s thirty. She loves to do everything I do, so she makes lots of lists, with a pen, and is so proud of them! She colors a lot, and all of her creations go on the refrigerator door–she puts them up herself :-) I love to watch her grow.

  78. I have 2 budding artists. My middle son is 7 and has told us since he was 2 that he wants to be an artist when he grows up. He is constantly drawing, painting, and creating. His latest projects are illustrated letters to his friends. My 3 year old loves to paint. Some days he will paint 20 pieces of paper. This would be a great present for them. Thanks for the chance to win.

  79. My 6 year old just told me that when she turns 18, she’s going to be an artist. She loves to draw and oftentimes the first thing she does in the morning is sit at the kitchen table and draw – she’s really into drawing dollhouse-style houses at the moment.

  80. Oh yes! I have an artist under my roof. She loves painting and drawing. This would make such a delightful Christmas gift. Thank you so much for the opportunity.

  86. My two year old daugther is our budding artist/future architect. Her favorite medium is crayon and marker on paper, chalkboard, whiteboard, walls, floor, her legs, her brother’s legs….

  88. My 4 soon to be 5 year old loves to draw and write. She just learned how to write her name and is so excited. She also loves to paint, glue, and create with whatever she can get her hands on. She is great at thinking outside the box!

    he wakes until his eyes shut in sleep. Comics , adventure, narrations of our read alouds and our real life adventures all end up in his books!

  93. My little guy isn’t quite at the stage where he’s creating, but I’m looking forward to it when we get there!

  103. My 9 year old son is our artist. He is often found with drawing pencils in hand drawing another picture….he’s pretty good too!!

  104. My oldest hated writing until we started homeschooling her. She has a learning disability that makes it hard for her to read, and then write to show her comprehension which is what was required of her at school. When we brought her home, we moved to a more oral program for her. Suddenly it gave her an opportunity to just enjoy the times when she was asked to write. She is writing a “chapter book” at the moment and it isn’t uncommon anymore to see her with paper and pencil in hand as she just writes things down. This is a fantastic giveaway. I hope Canadians are eligible so I can win a writing kit…if not, thanks for the links so I can go shopping!

  105. My son loves to draw pictures about anything concerning soccer! Also the Harry Potter theme is one of his favorite things to draw.

  133. I began ‘journaling’ with my son when he was barely 4 years old, now at age 5 he loves his journal time w/ his mommy, and I LOVE to see him express himself through his pictures and descriptions. As a mom w/ a chronic illness, it is a wonderful way to be able to spend fun time together and make memories. :)

  134. My little one loves to draw all the time all over. I set up a table and a chalk board in the kitchen and then one in her room. Would be great to have a caddy to easily move her stuff from room to room!

He LOVES writing letters to family members and making his own greeting cards. We usually get a card or two daily from him. What I am most proud of though, is his love of making his own homemade gospel tracts. My boys have a scripture on their wall and he frequently goes alone to his room to copy that verse on pieces of paper to hand out. He hands them out when we have playdates at the park and he handed them out with a piece of candy on Oct 31st. I am so proud of my budding artist and can’t wait to watch how God will use his desire to draw and write for His glory!

  139. My eldest son is the artist in the family. His drawings always tell a great story!

  154. I think I’ve got a storyteller, who could certainly become a writer!

  155. My son loves to do any kind of “craft” that involves colouring and cutting. Lately he has been cutting up shapes and mailing them to his grandparents.

  156. My son is our budding artist. He’s almost three now, and over the past several weeks his scribbles have been progressing from being completely wild and crazy to more controlled circles and lines. The other day he drew something that looked vaguely like a high-top sneaker, then proudly announced that he made a steam engine! This art box and supplies would be greatly appreciated by my little man!

  261. I tweeted! Username @erinsday on Twitter. This is a great idea!

  262. I do have a budding artist! He is taking art lessons and really enjoys those however his most favorite thing to do is to go to his private ‘studio’ (a place he made for himself in the garage!) and create — drawings, paintings, sculptures. He also loves to write stories. Currently he is very interested in movie making and screen writing. He writes a screen play then he story boards it. Next he puts together costumes and sets. Finally he rounds up his brothers and the neighborhood kids to film — sets, costumes and all! The end result is really entertaining!

  271. Both my daughters love to paint/color/draw anything… as long as there are bright colors involved!

We’re trying to increase his desire to color, draw, write, etc. I gave him a Toy Story pencil bag with markers, crayons and colored pencils in it and that has helped some. Maybe this delightful station would help too!

    My baby is too small to even hold a crayon, but I would have LOVED this as a child. I’m hoping she follows in my footsteps and makes lots of creative, sweet drawings for us to hang on the fridge!

  332. My youngest loves to draw comic strips.

  334. My son is never without colored pencils, coloring books, and paper! This caddy would be so useful to help him keep everything together! I tweeted too!

  335. My little one is almost two but one of her favorite things is coloring and painting and playing with playdoh. We are constantly on the look out for new craft activities.

  336. Both of my daughters are budding artists. They love to draw and create things. My oldest wants to sew. The sewing kit is really cute!

  337. Great giveaway! My daughter loves to draw and write. She loves to copy words off anything. Recently, energizer from a battery, memory from a memory game. Not bad for a 5 year old.

  338. My son loves to draw everyone in the family as a super hero or a space alien. He can also give quite a good narrative to go along with the picture!

  339. My 11 year old is our budding artist. He enjoys drawing pictures of space creatures and castles.

  340. My daughter would LOVE that! She spends hours writing, drawing and coloring. It’s a gorgeous product.

  341. My son loves to color, cut, glue, cut, cut, cut, glue, create! An artist in the making! My daughter is the writer, and is having fun learning cursive so her writing is also “pretty”.

  342. I tweeted (mama2three)

  343. My daughter enjoys various types of art! As does my son! What an awesome giveaway to any child to spark more interest in enjoying art!

  344. My kids and I all participated in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) this year, so you can see I’ve got more than one budding author here! My daughter is also an artist right down to her bones. She loves to draw and paint, but nothing is safe from her artistic bent…including her bedposts (they are now people) or the recycling (ships, dolls, houses, etc..) We need this caddy!

  345. Our six year old daughter carries her colored pencils around in a zip-loc as if they might take off without her were she to set them down. Right now she’s into drawing what happening in her world–a firework display, our cat and dog eating, her brother with his blanket. Anything. The caddy, though, is beautiful. I can’t imagine anyone being disappointed to win this!

    My girls are pretty young yet, but they do love scribbling (I mean “coloring”) and this looks like a beautiful way to keep their stuff organized.

  348. Oh goodness, this would make my daughter incredibly happy! If I could post a picture of her art work I would, she just recently turned 4 and already she can draw people that look like people (including the right number of fingers and toes) and she draws dogs pretty well too. She loves to draw, and will spend hours coloring, drawing and writing. She can write just about anything if I tell her the words to write. She would adore this for her little desk area I made!

  349. This is beautiful! I have one of each, a writer and an artist. My 4 year old isn’t much for drawing, but adores writing and copying letters.

    My 2 year old will color on every piece of paper he can get his hands on!

  350. What a great way to organize creative supplies! My son loves to write stories and illustate them.

  351. Our daughter is a budding author and illustrator. She loves drawing a picture that goes with a story.

  352. My youngest loves to draw and write. She leaves cute post-it notes all over of butterflies, rainbows, hearts and love notes. She would love to have an art caddy of her own.

  353. My 9 yr old son is an amazing artist. He loves to draw…especially characters from tv or games.

  358. My daughter loves creating anything. Right now, her current favorite activity is painting.

  359. I tweeted!

  360. all of my kids love to draw. My daughter asked for a calligraphy set and an interior design tracing set where you can design different rooms using some stencils. Last year we gave her a beautiful wooden easel and she loved it. The boys like to draw or color. Lately they’ve been taking out the full size coloring pads and coloring in Wall E, Cars and Thomas pictures – good cold day activities inside!

  361. from the time my little Karinna could hold any sort of drawing utensil, she has been an artist. She is now 6 and has not stopped, drawing coloring or writing since. She has always said that she wants to be an artist, and one Sunday she even sold her work at Church, making $2.95 on her various drawings. (we decided not to tell her that Jesus isn’t into making money off people in his house…we’ll save that for if it starts becoming a habit/problem.) This is such a generous giveaway. What an amazing treat.

    p.s.- ironically as I was typing this up, there was a squeak of the bedroom door, and out she came with a container of crayons and a coloring book. ha! I love this girl.

  362. My daughter has been studying Monet in 1st grade and has been doing painting inspired by his haystacks and poplars.

    We need exactly this type of caddy for our craft table.

  369. Christina P says:

    My son is still in the scribbling phase, but I hope to nourish the scribbling into something more substantial!

  370. This is a beautiful way to keep my son’s art supplies organized. He is just a toddler, but can spend hours drawing shapes with markers. He especially likes drawing stop signs.

  371. We sure do have a little artist in our family! He is 6 years old and absolutely loves to draw with his imagination. It is his way to calm down and enjoy his little ‘get away’! I am glad he found his talent so young b/c he can draw things with such detail that we, as adults, can easily overlook. For instance, he drew a beautiful house and inside this house was a little boy waving hello; and 2 kids in the garage b/c the garage door was 1/2 way down and all you saw were the feet! Creative, huh?? I am in awe. A real talent given by God. Please enter me in to win, he’d LOVE this for Christmas (esp. since Christmas will be hard for us this year.) Thanks so much and God bless, Mary @ CHeerios

  374. I have three budding artists really – three girls that I home school. My oldest has gotten very into pastels and watercolors in the last few months. I love to see the details that she is learning to add as she gets older. My middle daughter loves to draw and her newest skill is wanting to fill the whole paper with color. So if she draws a picture of them playing outside before the picture is finished it is filled with sky and clouds and birds as well. My youngest just wants to keep up with the older two so whatever they are doing she is trying to do as well. It is so fun to watch…now if I just had a great place to display it ALL!

  375. My 10 year old daughter loves to write. She probably has 12 stories going on at any one time. She just finished a novel for National Novel Writing Month. She would totally dig this caddy! Such a cool gift! Thanks!

  376. we have multiple budding artists. i love watching their unique styles develop. my son is a story teller in his work and my daughter does very neat detail drawing.

I’m super creative and love to craft, and her daddy is a graphic designer and drum builder… it’s in her genes! If nothing else, this would make a fabulous gift for a friend’s little one I know. :)

  386. This would be awesome to keep all of the art supplies together. This would be great for when our baby gets a little older!

  391. My 5 year old daughter loves to write. Her favorite thing is to have a notebook in her hand at all times so she can write down things that she wants to remember. She does this completely on her own, and particularly likes to do it when reading books…an awesome practice that I hope continues so willingly!

  392. My son loves to color, paint with fingerpaints and watercolor. At 3, he’s very interested in markers, but I don’t think I am! :) We bought him a stamp set for Christmas and I’m excited to see how much he enjoys working with it as well. The art tote looks amazing, definitely a step up from what I’m currently using – ziplocks!

  451. Oh goodness, what a wonderful giveaway! My son, 4 yrs old, just drew his first picture all by himself. Though we usually prompt him, he took it upon himself to create a beautiful picture of his family. Mama, Daddy, himself, and little sister, with a kitty and a doggie addition we don’t have yet in our family. :) He even signed it with his name. An artist after my own heart.

  452. I tweeted this awesome giveaway @lynnepatti!! Thanks!!!

  453. Both of kids spend hours each week coloring with crayons and markers.

  454. What a fantastic giveaway! Thanks for posting it and please enter me in it.

    • Sorry, sorry, sorry!! I didn’t read the instructions carefully enough! So here is both my answer to the question and my comment that I tweeted about the giveaway. My twitter handle is @fiddler42

      My answer is this–I have three children. The eldest is a reluctant artist who is just now starting to come into his own–he’s enjoying experimenting with different techniques via Drawing for the Artistically Undiscovered (by Quentin Blake, illustrator of the Roald Dahl books). My middle child is happiest when doing art and could draw animals until the cows come home. And my youngest is all about the details, and loves drawing pictures of his family the most.

  455. Do you have a budding artist or writer in your family? What does he or she enjoy creating most?

    YES! I have two actually ;). My daughter is 4 and is just now learning to write. She mostly enjoys writing her name, but she’s starting to ask me to write out other words for her to copy and practice. As far as creating, she’s particularly fond of cutting and pasting in decopage (sp?) style. She adds buttons, ribbon, paper and often colors with crayon on her creations. My son is 2 and just plain loves to scribble. On Everything.

  456. We have one of each really – our oldest loves writing books – mostly about spies and Star Wars. Our youngest could sit and draw all day – he loves to draw people but especially pirates. This caddy is amazing – so much better than our rinky dink plastic one! Thanks!

  457. My girl (3.5) LOVES to create art and has recently started showing interest in writing and is often making “lists” and gets so excited when she (accidently?) writes an actual letter. I know she would be over the moon with this writing center! Thanks for the opportunity! :)

  458. I have one budding artist (wants to be a fashion designer) and one budding writer!

  459. What a great caddy! My 3 kids would love it – and so would I. No more little bins of crayons or markers, or colored pencils that get left here and there – all of it together, in one simple place — that can’t accidentally get pushed under the bed!

  460. My nearly 4 year old loves to create. It’s hard to identify what exactly she’s making, it’s more abstract haha. She would love this!

  461. My little guy is just learning to draw and print his letters. It is so sweet! He’d love this.

  462. My daughter, who is 9 years old, loves to draw, paint, and write. She frequently takes a clipboard, paper, markers or pencils and goes out on our farm to sketch what she sees. During the summer, she wrote a very long chapter book with lots of illustrations. She did beautiful work with different art mediums on a study about the moon and its phases along with her own poetry and comments.

    My son, who is 7 years old, loves to illustrate his stories with markers. His writing is just blossoming along with his drawing. He enjoys looking through the “Come Look With Me” books on art that we have.

    My youngest daughter, who is 5 years old, spends just about every free moment drawing, coloring, painting or playing with playdough.

    The writing caddy looks beautifully designed and very functional. For whoever wins it, may it be an inspiration for hours and hours of imagination, creativity and joy.

  463. I have THREE budding artists in the family! This would be great!

  464. We have two :) One loves drawing dragons (a la Cressida Cowell) and the other is in a pirate stage right now. This caddy looks fantastic!! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

Books and art – that’s what they do all day! (Also run around being maniacs…) This would really be a wonderful addition to our homeschool art arsenal!

  474. Yes….my 22-month old son is learning his colors and has just recently taken an interest in coloring with crayons! (Although he still tries to sneak in the occasional taste! Yuck!)

  475. What a great art caddy! This would definitely inspire my little girl to create more! Plus, it’s just gorgeous.

    Lori :)

  483. This is amazing! Both of my kids would love this! My 3 year old daughter loves to “write” letters and use as many colors as she can on a paper. My 6 year old son truly considers himself an artist… he is now into different mediums (his words!), using pastels, paints, markers, pencils, etc. Our art stuff is all stored in one place- which is of course not where it is usually used. This would be perfect!

  484. My son loves to write and also loves supplies. This would be perfect!

  485. I am in the process of setting up a writing/art area for my 5yo son whom I am homeschooling. He needs a bit of encouragement in both of those areas and this caddy is so beautiful and functional, I know it would help.

  486. All 3 of my girls spend hours drawing. They don’t care much for coloring books, but enjoy being free to draw detailed pictures of fairies, princesses, and even a Viking or two! :-) They prefer colored pencils, but unfortunately, we have been stuck with very low quality colored pencils, that break all to easily. Thank you for offering this giveaway!

  487. My daughter who is almost 5. She loves anything to do with art. She is always coloring, drawing and making pictures. She is also starting to make up her own songs. Coloring/drawing is her get away and comfort.

  488. I have a young budding artist. She enjoys doing portraits of our family and writing notes to her grandparents and cousins.

  489. My little artist is just starting out, we are learning to hold the crayon without eating it and color on the paper. :) But I love that this caddy would grow with him as his skills develop.

  490. Okay, I tweeted! It would be sooooo wonderful to win.

  491. What a nice looking caddy! I’ve got two girls ages 9 and 4 that love to spend hours coloring and doodling…

  492. Meranda Huffman says:

    What a fantastic giveaway, both my son and daughter are very creative although my daughter is the one who is an extremely talented artist, she loves to draw, write stories, and create!

  493. Yes! I have two ;o) My son enjoys creating books and currently my daughter’s favorite medium is homemade play-dough, although they love any type of art!!

  494. I love this! My budding artists, love markers, charcoal, and pastels!

  495. What a fabulous giveaway! My son and daughter both love to draw and write. Currently my son’s favorite thing to draw and tell stories about are dragons. We’re setting up a drawing/writing desk in his room and this would be the perfect addition…

  496. Meranda Huffman says:

    I tweeted!

  497. Yes, my eldest daughter loves writing. She is 5 and has learned cursive, so now, everywhere in the home are little notes with sweet 5 year old cursive scrawled all over them. She loves writing letters to her family, especially on cards that she creates herself using stamps, stickers, markers, etc. It would be wonderful to win this caddy! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  498. My daughter is our budding artist, we even pushed back bedtime last night so she could finish her watercolor painting. This caddy would look so much nicer on our table than the plastic bins we have – I’d even leave it there during dinner.

  499. i have a budding 14yo writer….who is writing her first book. (: i had no idea she was doing it— until the last few months. and i also have a 6yo dd who LOVES! coloring things/creating new pieces of her art.

  500. My daughter — she loves making cards for friends and family.

  501. I have three buddy artists! My daughter loves to draw people, especially babies. My eldest son likes to draw comic book style characters and scenes. My youngest son loves to draw shapes, letters, and cars. My kids would love to have this!

  502. My daughter lives, breaths and dreams her art. That’s all she wants for Xmas – art supplies. Fingers crossed.

  503. My four year old is definitely a budding artist, he’s by far the happiest with a marker in his hand and a fresh stack of paper in front of him. It’s been this way since he was 2, and shows no signs of abating. His dad is an artist so it’s no great surprise. He’s currently fixated on drawing ships, rockets, and cats. It looks like a fab caddy, and would be better than the jam-jars he currently moves around full of markers and pencils!

  506. I have an aspiring artist in my house. My daughter is planning on going to art school but she has yet to settle on a medium.

  507. Pam in Missouri says:

    I absolutely love this caddy. It is a nice change of pace from plastic, which is useful but just not lovely.

    My daughter would be over the moon with it. She is definitely the artist in our house. She is always making happy little drawings. Her medium of choice is blue. She doesn’t much care if it is paint, marker, crayon, dough, etc just so long as it is blue.

  508. Our middle child would happily paint, draw and practise her letters all day long. She loves to share her creations with everyone.

  509. Yes…my daughter loves to color and paint…she loves to do anything craft related!

    We are also lucky to have a wonderful writer and storyteller that likes to turn her stories to song. We are well entertained at our house!

  512. My 7 year old daughter would love, LOVE, LOOOOOVE to find one of these caddies with her name on it (if she can get it away from her mom!) She is quite a prolific artist filling sketchbooks with drawings and paintings. She also loves fiber arts–sewing, crochet–and makes her own dolls and doll clothes. I’m turned off by the usual “craft kits” that seem so void of creativity, and prefer instead to give her the raw materials and see what she can do with them. This caddie is just the thing to help her fill another sketchbook! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  513. We are often inviting people over for meals and both our kids love making little invitations. I love this caddy!

  514. Monica Devine-Haley says:

    My 5 y.o. is PASSIONATE about drawing. He has already filled numerous sketch books and just blows me away with his enthusiasm and attention to detail. He wakes up every morning with an idea on his mind to create – and yes, we have pens, markers and pencils everywhere! They spill out of the clementine crate all day long as they are transported all over the house.

  515. My two year old already writes his name and loves practicing his letters. He asks to sit at the table and work all the time.

  516. My 2 year old is a budding artist, she loves to draw whatever comes to mind [everywhere!]. I love how she draws something, then tells me what it is – and though it looks nothing like the person or thing, it is so exciting to see her imagination blossom!

My four year old loves to draw things in nature and then tape the drawings to our walls. What a great giveaway! Thanks always for the inspiration!

  521. Katrina Conway says:

    My two year old would rather be painting and coloring than anything else in the world! Anytime my mom comes over, the first words out of her mouth are “Gigi, can we paint?”

  522. oh my goodness! This is so great! My son LOVES to draw, paint, create. His favorite thing to do is to dig through our recycled boxes and cut and tear them apart and make new things like rockets, puppets, jet packs for his action figures, etc… :) This would be perfect for him! Thanks.

  536. My four year old daughter is our new budding artist and writer. She has mastered all the letters to her name we are just working on putting them in the right order.

    What a neat concept! I love it! My two daughters could draw and color all day long! They both love to draw pictures of anything and everything!

  540. Both my sons really enjoy painting on our easel. I hang their work on the clothesline to dry and we get to admire it. My older son’s current dream job is to be an artist in Mexico (because art and Spanish are his two favorite subjects!). He’s seven.

    i do have a budding artist, or 3!! My girls love to draw themselves & our family…it’s fun to see the pictures my oldest drew when it was just her & then when her middle sister was born & then her baby sister.

You can tell who drew it just by the bodies & the hair they draw…they’re so unique in their shaping & sizing…truly treasured pieces of art in our house.

  645. One of my proudest everyday moments as a parent was when my little guy told me that he likes to use every color in the crayon bin – I felt the same! What a wonderful giveaway.

  671. Ana Thomson says:

    That caddy is the best I’ve seen so far. My toddler daughter loves using her watercolors and markers every afternoon and writes her own “books” which we staple together. This caddy would be keep her art cabinet organized and she could just pull it out as needed. Great giveaway!

As an artist and teacher myself I have had my boys creating from the very beginning. Thanks for the sweet giveaway.

Ethan is the builder and problem solver. He is constructing a tunnel and habitat for his Zhu Zhu pet. He recently made a cardboard pocket for a pair of scissors to protect them from his little brother’s hands. Aidan is all about dinosaurs. He can narrate quite a few greek myths too. He recently drew a stegosaurus with some impressive colors! This caddy will be great for my three children to tote around the house.

  677. My daughter loves to draw animals and flowers with crayons and colored pencils on paper or with chalk outside or even on a steamy shower door. :)

  678. my daughter loves to draw and carry her box of crayons from room to room. i think she’s very close to learning to write so this would be so handy on many fronts.

  744. I have a couple of aspiring artists in my home! My almost 4 year loves drawing animals and my 19 month old just loves scribbling with as many colors as he can fit on a page.

  745. #2 does nothing lately but draw draw draw. We’ve been thinking about getting him an art kit for Christmas- this is much better than anything we’ve looked at.

  746. My 4 1/2 year old had no interest in drawing or coloring or creating until this year. Now he loves it so much that we set up an art area in our family room. A day doesn’t go by without him coloring or drawing or creating some kind of art. Today, he wanted to make pop-up cards so we had to find instructions on the Internet. I love seeing his creativity bloom…and I love that his 2 year old sister is following in his foot steps.

She enjoys drawing and adding color with colored pencils. She currently loves fashion illustration, making mock-up catalog or magazine pages and designing floor plans. She also loves drawing silly creatures with quirky features and writing brief summaries about their personalities. It is a true delight to see the outpouring of creativity from this child!

  750. yes, they are really into creating their own comic strips…it’s so cute-

  751. My husband is a wonderful writer, so we’re hoping our kids follow in his footsteps! This caddy is beautiful and inspiring. :)

  752. My four year old is always making something. Her latest favourite is making little books. She draws the pictures and tells me what to write.

  753. My 2-year-old loves coloring, but he hasn’t gotten much past the scribbling stage yet.

  754. Our budding artist wont be born until February, but since both of his parents are artists, this would be a great thing for Mom and Dad to use on birth announcements and then hand down as he gets old enough to start doing his own artistic things.

He traced his own hand and turned it into a turkey, and then made an envelope for one grandma…….Another project that he did completely on his own was to make an envelope with a bug (mosquito) drawn on it, that he could use to collect money that his preschool was collecting in order to be able to purchase mosquito nets for people in other countries to protect them from malaria.
