I would like to apologize now for the high quality pictures in this post! LOL
Every afternoon, my kids groan when I announce that it is homework time! Then the questions begin...
**Where is my pencil? This one isn't sharpened!
**Who took the glue stick? I need it for my project.
**Mom, I can't find my crayons!
Does this happen to you?
I took some unused rectangle Ziploc containers and turned them into homework boxes.
Each school age child has their own.
For my 3 boys, who are in Elementary school, there boxes include:pencils, crayons, glue stick, scissors, eraser, pencil sharpener.
My daughter requires a bit more. Hers includes all the same items as the boys and a calculator, ruler, highlighters, pens and extra paper.
They are all labeled with each child's name so they can grab their own box.
It has made homework time much less painful (: At least for me!
It is also nice for when Dad is in charge and may not know where something is!
