Easter Writing Station

Our writing station sits on a shelf near the table in the playroom. Providing a variety of interesting writing materials encourages Julia to explore writing. She loves to use the blank paper and envelopes to write letters to friends and family. Changing the materials occasionally keeps the writing station fresh and exciting.
The writing station holds various materials to encourage the girls to write. Books with blank pages, envelopes, blank paper, an letter/sound chart, a clipboard, and cards with family names are always available. Other materials change to reflect the current season or area of study. Here is a glimpse of what is currently in our writing station.
A letter/sound chart that I downloaded from Hubbard's Cupboard.
Family names written on cards.
A booklet of Easter words and pictures that I downloaded from Kidssoup. I would like to create another word booklet that reflects the spiritual meaning of Easter with words such as Jesus, tomb, resurrected, etc.
Here is Julia writing a flip book. This type of book is good for labeling pictures.

Here is Julia's completed flip book.
Here Julia is writing in a blank book. This type of book encourages Julia to write sentences or stories.


  1. Love it, even though it will be after Easter when the writing center post is scheduled, I am going to snag this one to feature!

  2. Love your site! You have lots of great ideas!

  3. I just love this! I hope you'll post other writing centers and ideas ~ I am going to work on something for my daughter.

  4. What a great idea. I could totally do this!

  5. So fun!!! Meara loves to write and draw. She has so many notebooks with words and pictures that she has wrote and drawn. This is a perfect idea...I can't wait to put this together for her! Thanks for sharing. Are you going to homeschool your oldest in kindergarten?

  6. Heather,
    We have enrolled Julia to start kindergarten in our neighborhood school this fall. I have considered homeschooling but I am really impressed with the school. Later I may decide that public school is not the right place for my kids but for now we'll give it a try.
