We have been through various organizing solutions for markers and crayons, many in fact. We’ve tried individual cases by child but those always ended up all over the house. I thought those would work well for taking with us to restaurants, etc. but we have a small case of crayons and markers in our Let’s GO bag (future post 😉 ), so it was overkill. I have seen caddies before too but they were always too deep for crayons, kiddo scissors, etc. I started seeing picnic caddies used and thought, genius. I had yet to come across any styles I liked until yesterday when shopping Hobby Lobby for some St. Patty’s days treats. And then there, right before my eyes, were their Spring picnic caddies in a rainbow of colors. With a 40% off coupon, BOOM, it came in right around $10. Woo-hoo!! It holds ALL our markers (which are a lot) and more! We do have some crayon overflow but those are stored up high (recycling one of the individual boys cases to store them) and I will refill the basket with them as the ones out break. AND it has a handy handle, which makes it easy for carrying between rooms. LOVE. I also whipped up this cute little label to add onto it (c’mon everything needs a label 🙂 ). You can scroll down and Save As the image at the end if you would like a label too!
A fun little label if you would like 🙂
