Sweet Little Homework Caddy

School Supply Caddy

It’s funny how you can see a simple clever solution floating around Pinterest, one you’ve probably pinned 15 times, and then never do it. Well I’m finally going to do it. I’m going to assemble a simple little homework caddy, and if you have kids, you should do it with me!

It takes 5 minutes. So why haven’t I done it before now? It solves SO many little school day annoyances. You know how it plays out…


You begin to actually wonder if the dog really IS eating the homework, and the homework supplies…didn’t you just stock up 2 weeks ago?

 

You and your child spend 30 minutes searching for a single pencil, and the glue she just used yesterday. You begin to actually wonder if the dog really IS eating the homework, and the homework supplies…didn’t you just stock up 2 weeks ago? It’s like someone is playing a mean magic trick where they make all homework supplies disappear into thin air. What is going on??

Cute Homework Caddy

That’s why I love this simple little solution floating around Pinterest. A homework (or craft) caddy is a great way to avoid these little frustrations, and teach order to the little ones. You bring it out when needed, but be sure you are the one to put the caddy away after each use. This allows you to see when items need to be re-stocked, or if something wasn’t put back in the caddy. It is an opportunity to train young kids to put things back in place and clean up after themselves, while still monitoring how well they are learning this habit…as they start to show consistency with putting things back in the caddy, you can extend the responsibility of putting the caddy away to your child.

Remember, with any “simple” solution, the real work is in the change of habit. Don’t neglect that important attribute, or it won’t really become a solution.

      It is a grey Walmart caddy that I spray painted this pretty color! :) Then I sealed it with a high gloss lacquer spray paint. <3 the power of paint! 😀
