Both boys usually carry out their notebooks when we head out. These are useful during waiting times or meal times, where they busy themselves doodling, or filling the pages with stickers. And since Junior J is quite the squirrel when it comes to picking up and keeping little findings from nature (like leaves or flowers), we've also started keeping these things inside his notebook.
Thing is, it's rather annoying to have him stuff his notebook with leaves, only to have them go flying around in the frenzy when he drops his notebook, or when the wind gets to the pages. So we've taken to carrying small rolls of washi tape (you could try winding some around a piece of card or an ice cream stick too!) which we use to secure his stuff after he picks them up. It helps to make the page look prettier too, I think!
What do you use washi tape for? (For more ideas, you can check out our Pinterest board on washi here.)
