“I can’t find a pencil.” “Where are my crayons?” “I need glue!” “The pencil I found isn’t sharpened, and there’s NO ERASER!”
If I have to hear my kids complain about homework supplies one more time, I might lose my mind. It gets old real fast. Something needed to be done, so I made them a homework caddy. – A one stop work station that can go anywhere with the kids around the house.

Every single writing utensil, art supply, sharpener, ruler, etc, will now be in one spot.
Recently, we started tackling the summer work packets, which prompted me to make this caddy a bit earlier than the beginning of the school year. My kids can pull it off the desk shelf and have everything in front of them without the crying and whining.
There really wasn’t much to it. I was out shopping for back to school stuff, anyways.
Obviously, you can customize the caddies to suit your child’s needs. My daughter doesn’t need markers, but my son does. He also needs a calculator this year, she doesn’t. And so on…
What you’ll need:
1 larger container to hold everything. I used a simple, white one.
Any type of smaller containers or jars will work to hold smaller items.
*I used ones very similar to these, but they were white, not clear.
As for the supplies themselves, I just used generic pencils, crayons, markers, scissors, etc. All the things the kids needed for their work.
