Back-to-school is less than a month away in my area, and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a LITTLE excited! I’ve loved all of the free time I’ve had with my kiddos, but I kind of long for the hours of silence! My kids have always been pretty good about doing their homework, when I started them! This year, I’m determined to make my kids great at self-starting, and I think these DIY homework stations will provide my kids with just the homework-starting inspiration I was looking for!
Simply Organized has a great homework station for you, especially if you are short on space! This homework station fits easily into any nook and cranny of the home.
If you would rather that your kids do their homework at the kitchen table, where they are easily supervised, try making these homework pouches from Scissors and Spatulas. They can be attached to the back of any chair, and they’re completely adorable.
Over the door shoe organizers are great for virtually anything–even homework stations! Store any supplies your kids might need in a hanging shoe organizer. It’s so easy to keep track of things when you know where everything is! Idea from A Bowl Full of Lemons.
What kid wouldn’t like working at this homework station from Mom 4 Real? It comes complete with a rotating tabletop, a cork board, and a chalkboard where they can scribble down a few notes!
Give your old wooden crates a completely new fate with this DIY project from Uncommon Designs. Paint them whichever color you’d like!
This DIY homework station from Classy Clutter is my favorite project featured in this post. If possible, use old desks in your homework station. It will create a “school-like” atmosphere and allow your kids to focus better.
Cleaning caddies make excellent homework stations! Pop on over to Must Have Mom to see how she incorporated these into her own home.
If you have a set of old cribs laying around, I Know the Plans I Have For You has the perfect project: turn them into a homework station! I love when you can reuse big pieces of furniture like this!
The colors in this DIY homework station from Live Craft Eat are enough to motivate ME to do my non-existent homework. You can print all of the items for this project on her website!
Finally, we have a awesome DIY project from Landeluu. She turns an unused closet into a great space for doing school work! The bright colors make another great impact here as well!
