Keep it light and bright. Everyone works better in a space that is cheery and brightly lit.
I bet you heard this from your mom – “A place for everything and everything in its place”. Well, it’s true – most every adult that I know is much more productive when working in an organized spot. Kids are no different.
Pegboard is awesome. Period. It can be cut to any size, painted any color, stenciled or framed. The availability of pegboard supplies makes it a great choice for organizing around a homework area.
With that in mind – work to eliminate clutter. The clutter control solutions don’t have to be expensive – the dollar stores carry lots of storage options. Or you could even cover cardboard boxes that you have lying around with pretty wrapping paper.
Install hooks nearby to keep backpacks within easy reach. Make the space extra special with a board and batten treatment that includes a chalkboard area for personalization.
Paint inexpensive wood crates to hang on the wall instead of expensive bookcases. The interior of the wood crates can be brightened up with scrapbook paper.
Clean and simple. Who wouldn’t want to work in this streamlined, yet attractive homework station?
Every child of every age is proud of their work. Giving them a special place to display their projects is one of the best ways to show them that you’e proud too.
