we'll be starting up our homeschool year next week and i've been getting a few little things ready for the kids! even though we school at home, i wanted them to each have their own pouch for pencils, scissors, glue, etc. they're responsible for getting out their notebooks and pencils in the morning and this makes it easy for them to keep track of their own things (and we're kinda at that age where sharing scissors and glue with their 3 year old sister is not their fave). i found these colorful zipper pouches at ikea for a couple dollars each and stitched some felt letters on to personalize them a bit. so cute! the kids love them and are already sneaking off with them to draw!
