Whether you’re coloring with the kids or coloring by yourself, it seems like markers and their caps can get lost so easily. They roll away into all of the hidden nooks and crannies of your home, then your marker dries out, and you’ve got to buy a whole new pack just to get the missing color.
Kindergarten teacher Theresa Besenhofer came up with the perfect solution.
“Things in my kindergarten classroom that just make sense. You tape the markers together,” Besenhofer said.
The teacher taped all the caps from a set of Crayola markers together, so they were one unit.
With the marker caps all connected, they’re much more difficult to lose, and it’s easier to keep the set together.
“Keep your sanity. Tape the markers,” Besenhofer added.
“I love this, and I’m not even a teacher,” one person commented.
“Very smart idea,” another said.
“I did this for my daughter. You have saved me so much in lost or dry makers,” a user wrote.
