The School Bag is one of my secret weapons for too-cold-to-play-outside days, and I’ve had to pull it out a lot lately! Fortunately it holds its charm well!
The bag consists of a few dry-erase place mats for practicing addition (number writing for my kids) and handwriting, as well as workbooks and flash cards. All three kids love to take the bag, pick an activity, and “play school”. I don’t check their work or supervise them, but both Johnny and Emma have learned to write their letters from the school bag, and it consistently keeps them busy for at least half an hour – giving me time to start dinner, fold laundry, or even blog! =)
