This year, I’ve been teaming up with Staples to help your families go back to school with confidence! In case you missed it, you might want to read my Staples store shopping trip and the Scan my List feature I’ve written about this summer.
It’s possible as you’re reading this that your kids are headed back to school within the week, or perhaps they’ve already started. Given that, I’m guessing that many of you have completed (or are close to completing) your school shopping for this season. But before this shopping season ends, I want to encourage you to consider a final element you might have overlooked: your kids’ homework spaces!
I know my kids do best when they have an organized, well-stocked space to do their homework in. This space can also serve for art projects and other learning activities outside of school. Today I want to talk about how I shopped at Staples to create homework spaces for my kids. I hope it will inspire you to do the same!
Tip #1: Identify your homework spaces and clear them up.
After years of using the kitchen counter, we finally decided to give our kids their own desk spaces in their room. We felt it was important that they each have quiet, dedicated spaces to learn, work, and create. Of course, not everyone has this option. Whatever the case – identify where in your house will be the designated homework space, and aim to keep it clear of clutter.
