Kids’ art can be messy but you can keep the mess less by knowing how to organise kids’ art supplies!
So, you’ve turned the house upside down just to find that one red crayon your kids have been wanting to use, only to find it underneath your bed. Familiar scenario? Yep, been there, done that.
So, if you’re tired of searching almost endlessly for your kids’ art supplies, we’ve got you covered. Forget about stepping on your kids’ pencils or crayons or glue sticks, here are the nifty ways to store and organise your kids’ art supplies — and you can even use containers and bins you already have in your house!
1. Stackable storage bins are always a life saver.
2. Using clear storage bins can let you see what’s inside it.
3. If you prefer using coloured ones, you may label it so you won’t have to open everything just to see what’s inside it.
4. You can also use one colour of the bin to make it look more neat. Just add labels to better organise it.
5. Organise crayons in small drawers by colour so your kids won’t have to scour every crayon just to find the colour that they want to use.
6. Clear jars can also put tiny things in order.
7. You can also paint it black for a more elegant look.
8. You can also use a cute caddy to organise your jars.
9. You can also customise your caddy, add some pockets on the outside for pens, crayons, or scissors.
10. Pails can be great organisers too! Just customise it by adding pockets along the sides for easy storage of small things.
11. You can also use the pail itself. Just add some division to keep each of the items in place.
12. You can also add small pails along with the other containers you’ve gathered for your adorable art cart.
13. Don’t throw away those cans yet! These are great for storing pencils, crayons, or other small art stuff.
14. Shoe organisers can be the perfect fit for wrapping papers too!
15. Use clear ones so it’s easier to see what’s inside each pocket.
16. Got tons of toiler rolls? Use it to organise kids’ art supplies inside a box!
17. Don’t you just hate yarns going all over the place? Well, a simple solution to keep it in one place is by using your laundry basket!
After all the organising has been done, wouldn’t it be nice to see all your kids’ artwork in one place? Set aside a certain area in your house where your kids can express themselves and focus on their artwork. Here are some adorable work stations you can get ideas from.
