Crafty kids love to work with all sorts of loose materials, from popsicle sticks to googly-eye buttons. Keep these small supplies in clear plastic containers, which you can get in bulk at the party section of the supermarket. You can also save old takeaway containers for this purpose.

Often used for shoes or scarves, hanging organizers are also great for keeping school supplies in order. Just print a few labels or let your kids make their own—we’re sure they’ll have fun organizing their own stuff!

Make homework more enjoyable with a rolling cart.

There’s no saying where small kids will get struck by a creative idea, so let them make art anywhere they please by putting all their art materials in a storage cart. When they’re done, simply ask them to roll the cart back to its designated spot. Talk about easy cleanup! You can get a similar rolling caddy like this at Furniture Source.

Kikay moms, you probably have one of these lying around if you recently KonMari’d your lipstick collection. Use the lippie slots for slim highlighters of tubes of paint, and the wider niches for post-its or erasers. There’s no limit to what you or your little one can do—so use your imagination for a more organized homework station this school year! For a similar acryclic holder, try SM Home.
