How to Make a Homework Station
Start by grabbing your empty basket. This handy basket features compartments perfect for storing school supplies. And the handle makes it easy to carry from place to place, allowing your kids to easily transport their school supplies to any room of the house.
To help keep the school supplies organized inside the basket, add some paper cups to each compartment. This will make it simpler to store smaller items, like pencils and markers. It’s also a good idea to leave a little space open on one side to store bigger items, like bottles of glue.
Now it’s time to start decorating your basket. Wrap a piece of ribbon around the outside of the basket and secure it in place with a little bit of glue. Then, print out the homework station label on heavy cardstock and cut it out around the outer border. Glue the label on the front of the basket.
