Back to School Days are almost around the corner and to help my kiddos stay on top of their school work and be ready for the new year I made this Back to School Homework Station.
I love the fact that you can put everything they need to do their homework on the side of the fridge.
The best part about this project is that my kids love it!
We do homework in the kitchen so I thought what better place to have a School Station than right here where the action happens.
My favorite part of the back to School Station is the calendar.
I love multifunction things, this calendar is not just a calendar…it is a magnet and white board as well.
I have a step by step tutorial for you over here. I thought to add to the station things that the kids use all the time.
The number one question in my house during school days is:
Where is a pencil?
Number two: Have you seen a sharpener?
I think for the first time I can say I know where everything is!
I went magnet and hot glue crazy.
My goal was to add to the station the basic things that my little savages use everyday during school.
A ruler, scissors, tape, glue, punch holders, erasers, sticky notes, and even a box full of crayons and colored pencils.
I used Washi Tape to give all the items a more personal look.
Here you have the crayon box on the fridge…
I even had space to add their back to school charts.
We loved them last year and we are ready to use them again as soon as school starts.
You can find the tutorial here.
So are you ready to get organized and make this new School Year smooth and clutter free?
Make your own station, have fun with the colors you choose.
Make it a place that your kids would love and that you would appreciate.

So many great and fun ideas!
Where did you get the calendar?
I made it. There is a link to the tutorial on the post.
I love this! Where did you get the cassette tape note tabs?
I got them at WalMart last year.
Love this and used it as inspiration for a similar project I will be sharing soon. Would it be ok to share your image with a link back to this post for my inspiration?
Very cool. While we don’t do back to school like most I could use a command center. Maybe on the inside of a closet so it’s not in our tiny kitchen. Now I’m really brainstorming. Thanks Desiree for all the fabulous ideas- as always. 🙂
I love this! I have this blank wall next to my desk in dining room.. that’s where we do most of everything! Thanks!
Awesome. I love any well-done organizational tool and you have really scored on that one! My little guy is not old enough for this yet but my sister’s three kids wouldreally love it…possible aunt present in the works!
OMG!!! This is so perfect. We do homework in the kitchen as well. This is just what I needed. Thank you so much for sharing…
You are very welcome! Thank you so much for the visit..
I’m pretty sure the heavens opened and the angels sang as I came across your idea this morning… after once again, missing a teacher conference yesterday 😛 I love, love, love, love, love it!!! One question though, where do i get the vinyl for this project?
WOW. This makes my heart go pitter-pat. I’m SO getting rid of the junk on the side of my fridge and setting this up! Genius!
Molly, it is the best thing I have ever done!
Fabulous ideas, Desiree!! I love it. I also wanted to let you know I shared this on my blog today: http://www.vixenmade.com/2012/08/preparing-for-back-to-school.html
