School is starting a week later than usual this year, but it's crunch time! I want to get everything organized and ready for the first day of school. Between planning a combined birthday party, celebrating Liam's 2nd Birthday, and going on vacation, I don't have that much time to complete my Back to School projects!
The first project on my list was setting up our Homework Caddy for the upcoming school year!
I put together a simple Homework Caddy for the second half of the past school year, and it was a game changer! I really wish I did it years ago. Everything we needed to do homework or draw pictures was within easy reach!
Our Homework Caddy has been sitting on our kitchen counter for months (and being used daily!), but it was time to update it a bit and get it ready for the upcoming school year. It's such a simple project that makes a big difference! A big bonus? Everything is on sale right now!!!
Here's what you need:
- Caddy ($3-Target Dollar Spot)
- Pencil Holders ($1 each-Target Dollar Spot)
- Mini Bucket ($1-Target Dollar Spot)
- Safety Scissors
- Pencil Sharpener
- Glue Stick
- Crayons (we use the Crayola Twistable Crayons)
- Colored Pencils (Erasable are best!)
- Markers (Do you have toddlers? Choose washable!)
No further instructions are really needed! Put the markers, crayons, and colored pencils in the pencil holders. Put the pencils, pencil sharpener, glue stick, ruler, and scissors in the mini bucket (or additional pencil holder if you want to keep it uniform). I opted for a mini bucket with a chalkboard label because it was larger and could hold several items.
When you have everything sorted out and organized, put the holders into the caddy. Now everything can be easily carried to the homework spot!
Homework (times three!!!) can be stressful, but it definitely helps to have everything we need within reach!
Our Homework Caddy is officially finished and ready for the start of the 2015-2016 school year!
