So many of us parents are now required to coordinate various schedules, activities and of course, help with homework. I've come up with some homework station inspiration for us all.
Setting up and creating an organized home with a separate work space for children aids parents in an effort to keep kids on track and maintain routine. It gives children an opportunity to look forward to being productive and maybe even look forward to getting their work done because they have a space to call their own!
Tips on creating the perfect homework station in your own home:
We've got a four-point plan to help you carve out a workspace for your kids.
- Create a separate work space for each child
- Invest in organizational supplies
- Make it cheerful
- Provide inspiration
Creating a work space for each child.
We love this look by Sand and Sisal. This organizational tip is perfect, especially if you have more than one child. This area provides ample room for a computer and enough desk space for children to write, draw and be creative.
The board on the back wall allows for children to decorate and showcase various talents and interests. This is also the perfect area to keep important papers, schedules, resources and school information.
Invest in organizational tools and supplies
Invest in a school tool organizer such as a supply carousel By having all materials and items that the kids need to complete their homework right at their fingertips will help them to maintain organization and be productive.
Mom 4 Real shows us that glue sticks, pencils, pens, markers, crayons, scissors and paper can be easily accessible in the supply carousel so there is never a moment wasted looking for the very materials that kids need to work with! Parents will also know when items need replenishing by using this kind of school tool organizer.
