Today is all about creating a command center for your kids. We do not have a large desk or an office, so we need a mobile command center. I decided this year to house all the essential items for homework and projects in one container. Previously I had them on a shelf in a hallway closet. A sturdy cloth bin with handles sat unused in our playroom and was perfect for the job. I collected all the tools we need during the school year. I scrounged up a few random containers that were already in my house. Small tin buckets from the dollar bin, mason jars, and a paper ice cream bowl left over from Little Man’s birthday party.
Our command center now houses pencils, sharpies, highlighters, crayons, markers, white boards, dry erase markers, scissors, hole punches, paint brushes, glue, construction paper [white and colored], and note cards.
I am certain that our new command center will make homework a pleasurable and enjoyable experience for all. [Come on. A girl can hope! Anything is possible with a new school year. I am determined to remain positive.]
