How can I keep my child’s arts and craft supplies organised?

You love to let your child be creative so you provide him with all the art supplies to do so. The problem is that storing these supplies so they are organised and accessible to your child is difficult. So, how can you store your little artist’s tools of the trade?

Shelving that your child can reach, such as low book cases or shelves attached low on the wall are a great way to start. You can purchase clear plastic containers that fit the shelves and label the front of the container with the contents. If your child does not yet read, you can cut out a picture from a magazine of crayons and glue it to the front of the container.

Another great way to organise art supplies is to use a hanging shoe holder. Each pocket can be designated to hold one type of item. You can decorate the front of the organiser by gluing on one of the items that goes in each pocket or lettering each pocket for the contents such as “B” for brushes. Don’t forget to hang the organizer in a place that is close to the art station and make sure it is hung low enough so your child can get to all the pockets.
