Having this tote with pencils, markers, erasers, scissors and more that I can set on the kitchen table for the kids helps a lot. Plus it means they’re not carrying their pencil boxes to and from school everyday. It’s so simple to put this together… stop by your local dollar store and grab one of these inexpensive shower totes. I got these cups on clearance for 50-cents a piece and use them to hold pencils, markers and colored pencils. The smallest spot is perfect for holding erasers. Tuck in a couple of highlighters, a box of crayons, kid scissors and gluesticks. You can make this suit your family however you like by adding other things like a ruler, tape, Sharpies, etc.
I hope you give this homework caddy a try! What tips do you have for making back to school – and homework especially – easier?
