One post was not enough for the power of blank paper and crayons! So here is part 2!
Blank paper and crayons are multifaceted, unlimited, and some of the most effective tools for an early learning environment. Place them everywhere! Add scissors, tape, glue, and really anything else to add to their power! Watch children transform them into signs for block creations, lists for pretend play, paper airplanes to fly across the room (yes - that is encouraged), and, saving the best of last, original stories! The best part about all these experiences? They are child-led, child-chosen, and child-created.
