I can’t believe it’s almost time for kids to go back to school. It’s JULY! My son’s first day of school is August 1st (WHY???). I recently went shopping for all of the back to school supplies and I grabbed a few extras to restock our homework basket.
I created the homework basket a few years ago when my son started kindergarten. When he was assigned homework we’d gather at dining room table or around the island in the kitchen. We would collect all of required supplies and move around as needed.
I found a quick and simple way to keep all homework supplies within arm’s reach; the homework basket. I picked up the basket from Dollar Tree and the supplies can come from anywhere. I included the following items in our homework basket:
- colored pencils
- a sharpie
- index cards (color & plain)
- glue sticks
- pencil sharpener
- construction paper
- any assignments from teachers
