Altered Clipboards


These altered clipboards were so much fun to create. Originally, these were supposed to be for organizing my children's school papers. However, I became inspired by the papers and decided that they will become part of Explorer/Discovery Kits for my boys which I will give to them as an Easter gift. We love the outdoors and exploring all the wonders of nature. I am hoping these kits will allow us to enjoy some family time together and they will be used as teaching tools, as well.

Bugs, worms, birds, and bees are a big deal around here. So, what better way to learn than with these, right? I've got big plans for these Explorer kits, these will be great on our nature walks. The clipboard will come in handy for many things from holding their maps and treasure lists, to providing a solid writing surface for them to write or draw their findings. I just couldn't resist sharing these cute clipboards with you. I left them rather plain because I know they will be getting plenty of use out of these. I will be posting more of what will be in our kits and the finished projects.

How do you promote learning in your home?? I always love to hear how others include creative ways to promote positive learning.


  1. They turned out so cute! How fun that you have kits for the kids! I need to find some fun activities to help my kids enjoy learning! They are really into crafting...painting, making little animals and such. I should work some educational ideas into their crafts! Thanks so much for linking!
