Can you believe that the new school year is upon us!? Soon the big yellow bus will be hauling all the kiddos off to class and the 2014-2015 school year madness will officially commence. Lucky for you, the fabulous girls at Elizabeth Joan Designs recruited some amazing bloggers for a Back To School Blog Hop filled with all sorts of neat ideas to kick off your school year with ease. You won’t want to miss any of the awesome projects we have for you so be sure to visit each of the links listed at the end. Let’s get this party started, shall we?
With school comes homework and why not set the kids up for success with a homework caddy full of all the essentials? They can take it from the kitchen table, to the living room or anywhere they feel like studying. Even outside!
I used this cute metal crate from Garden Ridge to place all of my things in.
I added a “homework” sign to the front by cutting an old Halloween sign into a rectangle and painting it with chalkboard paint. Then I drilled holes in each corner, threaded some thin jute rope through and tied it to the basket.
To make the caddy a bit easier to carry, I added some handles by tying two strands of jute rope to the metal basket.
Now all that was left to do was add my supplies and we are ready to rock!
I added some pencils, crayons, markers, colored pencils, glue and glue sticks, scissors, a few folders, some books and a yummy snack. I placed them in some mesh pencil holders that I got from the dollar store. The cylindrical metal bin is from H&M online.
Alrighty! Now that you’re ready to take on that homework, be sure to check out the rest of the Back To School Blog Hop projects below. You can click on each image or the blog names below to get to each project.
