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.
