Wow, that is great that she can write her name. I have to work on that with Eliza. She probably could do it if I taught her.

Drew loves writing, that is what got him on the reading thing. He can write his full name and everyone in the family. He likes to copy words out of books. We use a whiteboard, the penultimate iPad app or these amazing chalkboards.
We almost always have these chalkboards on our coffee table. I have a big dish in the center with the huge bucket of chalk I bought at Ikea. Sidewalk chalk buckets would be cool too. Both kids draw and color on them often.

One thing Brandon really loves are his magazines. We get Highlights High Five (which is a version of highlights for preschool-age children) and National Geographic for Little Kids. They have great stories and activities for him to do and he gets so excited when the mail comes. My mom actually bought him a subscription to Highlights Hidden Pictures because he loves it so much so now we get tons of magazines, lol.
