Let me explain my afternoon. It’s a race to get everyone’s hands washed, snacks fed and homework done. Sometimes that turns into a mad search for a pencil that isn’t broken or a crayon that is the appropriate color for the directions. Since I have a hoarding issue when it comes to glass pickle jars, I use them for lots of stuff. They are great for organizing. I thought I could use them to organize a kind of homework caddy to keep everything easily accessible, I was right.
I gathered some shiny new pens, markers, colored pencils, crayons and pencils. Added a jar for some miscellaneous things like a pencil sharpener, glue stick, paper clips and erasers. Then I put all the jars in a wooden tray and that was that. Cute huh?
Now the kids have all they need in one spot which keeps things a little easier around here.
How do you get through homework?
