Today we are sharing the best ideas to organize kids craft supplies. Arts and crafts are a great way for children to express their creativity. Unfortunately the supplies required and the resulting artwork can undermine your desire to declutter and organize. Check out these tools to tame the clutter
How to Organize Kids Craft Supplies
When it comes to kid-related clutter, craft supplies top the list of culprits! If you are not careful they can start to take over your house.
It’s important to keep kids craft supplies organized in order to:
Allow materials to be easily accessed when creativity strikes
Help children avoid overwhelm or frustration because they can’t find something they are looking for
Assist them in making choices when they can clearly see what is available
Quickly see what needs to be replaced or was not put away
As a lover of all things simple, I tend to believe that less is more when it comes to purchasing craft supplies for at home use.
Personally, I recommend that you create of list of 5-7 essentials and limit it to those until they are gone. If you like more variety, then you can switch it up when one supply runs out.
The removable and washable bins are perfect to keep your kiddos craft supplies neat and tidy. The different colors make it easy for even the youngest crafters to sort items and put them back where they belong.
If you like the idea of a storage case, but need something a little more "heavy duty" this one with adjustable compartments and latches is sure to keep all the beads, pom poms and paints neat and tidy.
While traditionally used for toys, this storage system is perfect for craft supplies. This is actually what I use in my classroom to store all sort of materials like construction paper, glue, scissors, yarn, stickers etc. The open bins make it easy for kids to clean up quickly.
