Blackboard paint tree slices for natural mark making on the go. Great outdoor mark making idea. Kiddies could do this before working in their sketchbook. A basket of these for children to take out and explore.
I like the planner on the desk, can take to work and bring home. Tell me who my clients are for the day, who I'm meeting and talking to etc, appointment times with clients and drafts for letters to give to my seceretary. Can come in handy and looks cute and matches my office colours theme.
