This year I wanted to super organized before schools starts. Homework is a struggle in our house. This year I have a 4th grader and 2nd grader. I always say that my kids don't have homework. I have homework. I thought I already put in my years of homework? No one told me I would have homework while my kids are in school. Well, since the homework isn't going away I thought I would be extra prepared this year. So, I did a little research and came up with a simple homework caddy. Each day after school my kids can grab it off the dining room hutch and get to work.
Homework essentials are scissors, sharpened pencils with erasers, glue sticks, ruler, tape, stapler, and Elmer's glue. Everything they need is here. So easy to grab and get to work. The grey caddy was purchased at Target for around $3.50 and the buckets were in the $1 bins at Target (don't you just LOVE those $1 bins - you never know what you might find in there.) Happy homework days!
