But whether or not you have a desk with lots of storage space, you can still easily organize a great homework station for your kiddos – a free-standing version. As long as everything is in one place, easy to find/see and grab…you’re helping set your children up for successful homework habits in the coming school year.
Who knows, maybe they’ll even want to sit down after a long day at school to do even more homework. Ha! Wishful thinking, right? Nevertheless, making it look fun and giving them those creative tools….it’s a step in the right direction toward homework happiness.
As we get our home back to school ready (boys go back on Monday!), I organized a very simple free-standing homework station….
And it didn’t cost much! All I did was gather up homework supplies that were scattered throughout the house (office, kitchen, bedrooms) and group them together on this shelf that used to be in the garage…
Once we know about additional school supplies, I can adjust the station as needed to make sure everything the kids need for homework is right here.
I love it!…
Did your kids head back to school this week? If so, I hope you had an easy transition. I’m looking forward to getting back to some sort our routine…which will give me a little more time for projecting and blogging – yay!
