If you’re looking to add a little organization in your school and homework days, put together a little homework caddy. It’s a great way to get your kids ready for school and keep them organized all school year long.
While you’re picking up all the school supplies your kiddos need for the school year, pick up a couple extra boxes of pencils and markers and make a little homework caddy. I’ve found that keeping homework supplies in a caddy makes homework time a little easier to start and finish. My kids come home from school, have a snack, and start in on the homework. We try to get everything done right away while we’re already at the kitchen table and having a tote-able homework caddy helps us stay organized and efficient. This year I tweaked the caddy and system and thought you might want to see what I put together.
I started with two of my favorite organizing products – a cutlery caddy (from Target, in the seasonal outside entertaining section) and Ball canning jars. I love having the jars in the caddy because a jar can be removed and brought somewhere else for a project and it just plain looks cute.
Then I just loaded it up with the supplies that my kids seem to use on a nightly basis for homework and crafting – markers, pencils, erasers, glue, Post-Its, and scissors.
