This summer, I am in the process of organizing a Homework Zone for my oldest who is starting kindergarten! You can read about part: 1 and part:2 here and here!
Papers, papers and more papers! My children haven't even started grade school yet, and we already have a paper situation. My children come home from preschool, church, etc. with oodles and oodles of beautiful masterpieces that they are oh so proud of. We display their artwork on their individual bulletin boards for a little while, but then, what to do with all of their favorite masterpieces after that?!?
I found the perfect solution over at Jen's blog at iheartorganizing! If you haven't checked out her blog-you should! It is amazing! She has some awesome organizing ideas!
I purchased theses file boxes through amazon, however, you can purchase file boxes similar to these from many office supply stores. I bought one for each one of my children in a different color.
I bought a couple of boxes of hanging files...
Also, a box of these file folders...
Then, in Pages, I created these labels!
Next, I placed the labels on the file folders, and then just placed them inside of the hanging files like this!
And look! There is plenty of space to to grow! That makes this proud mom very happy!
I am very excited about our new schoolwork file boxes! There is plenty of room to store all their hard earned work! It will make preserving their schoolwork so much easier! I hope that these boxes will be something my children and I will be able to cherish for years to come!
There you have it, a smart and simple solution to organizing schoolwork!
Would love to hear from you! How do you organize your children's schoolwork?
