Back to School - Creating a Homework Station

For the last two years, it was only Connor who had homework during the school year.  Now that the twins are headed off to kindergarten (sniff, sniff), I decided to create a homework station that would allow them to have all of their supplies ready and available.  We had already been using a shoe organizer in our closet off the kitchen for miscellaneous items, such as hats and gloves in the winter, and sunglasses and baseball hats in the summer.  By moving those things to a different spot, I had plenty of space for our homework supplies.

The first three bags are the kids' markers for art
The bottom two bags hold pencils, erasers, crayons
and a glue stick for each twin

Misc markers, rules,
And art supplies for when homework is done
and they just want to create something!

Art supplies, extra markers (Keith got a great deal at Meijer!)
Stamps, envelopes, return address labels,
Connor's box with his school pencils and crayons


  1. Awesome. We have a dining table! Ethan wants a homework area after seeing your pictures.

  2. Where did you end up setting it up? I can't believe school is starting already...I need to get organized!
