Craft Tip: Marker Block


Our preschoolers love to draw with markers but so often lose or
forget to replace the caps. We created a simple marker caddy which
has worked well for us.

Using a block of wood at least 3 1/2 inches thick, we drilled
holes so each hole snuggly held a marker cap. We secured the caps
in the holes with a small amount of craft glue. We then placed the
marker in the corresponding cap. When markers dry out, we change
the cap and marker.

Children use the markers and replace them in the correct cap.
There’s no reason for children to lose tops, markers seem to last
longer, and children learn to match the color of the marker with
its top.
