Organize School Supplies with this simple DIY Art Caddy
As a type A, organization loving, homeschool mom, this project was a fun one for me! I needed a super simple way to organize school supplies and keep them portable at the same time.
You are seriously going to love this art caddy, you guys!
This Carry All Caddy makes the absolute best art caddy for homeschooling! I have 3 kiddos, so naturally I bought 3 caddies, embroidering each one with a child’s first initial.
My boys both got blue polka dots, while my daughter got pink (shown below).
We have a small art area in our homeschool room, where we store the art caddies when they aren’t in use.
However, when any one of my children get to a point in their day where they need their markers or glue, they simply head over to the homeschool art area and pick up their art bin that has all their organized homeschool supplies in one easy place.
We have found that the outside pocket works perfect for a pair of scissors and a single glue stick.
How to Organize School Supplies in Your New Art Caddy
You could easily toss markers and crayons in your art caddy with no dividers, but that would be utter chaos.
With just a few extra steps, you can create the organized art caddy of your dreams!
After a little searching for just the right thing, I stumbled upon these super cheap cups. They were exactly the right fit for creating a functional and organized art caddy!
Using this method, even my five year old can keep her homeschool art bin organized on her very own. I consider this a huge win, cause my daughter is very independent and loves to do things on her own.
Organized Art Bins = A More Organized Homeschool Room
If getting organized is something you truly desire for your homeschool, but staying there can sometimes be difficult for you. Creating an art bin is definitely a great starter project!
It’s also a super simple way to encourage your kids to keep their supplies tidy on a daily basis!
I absolutely love having an organized homeschool room (and house for that matter) and teaching children how to organize their own homeschool supplies is a great first step.
I included my kids in the entire process of making their art bins, what they wanted to put in them, the colors/embroidery we chose – all of it!
It was a fun little homeschool project for us, and their art caddies are organized to this day.
