Next, we will see some ideas of crafts to organize the study area of children and encourage them to make the most of their time.
Ideas to organize the study area
Recycled boxes to have everything in order
The boxes are the perfect solution to have everything in order. The idea is to recover some boxes of different sizes and recycle them to convert them into an extra storage space. They can be cardboard boxes, tin boxes, fiber boxes or any other material.
The shapes can also be different , since each one will be ideal for storing something. Boxes square, round, rectangular, with or without lid will serve to keep folders, pencils, magazines and all kinds of work materials.
You can cover these boxes with beautiful papers of different colors and put together a corner of boxes to better organize the study area of children. You can also add ribbons, pasted photos or paint them to make them more decorative.
A wall organizer
An organizer with pockets that can be hung on the wall is an excellent way to organize the study area of children, especially if we do not have much space.
To make this organizer you need a medium balsa board, EVA rubber of any color, thread, a white cord, a sewing machine and glue.
The first thing to do is cut eight rectangles of EVA rubber. Then the rectangles are sewn together in pairs, leaving one side of 26 cm free to form pockets . Glue (or silicone) is applied to fix the pockets to the wooden board.
Finally, two holes are made in the board with the help of a drill and pass the white cord through the holes. Just hang the board to the wall and ready. E n pockets can hold pencils, brushes, scissors and all kinds of materials.
Cans decorated to organize pencils
To organize the pencils you can use recycled cans . It will be enough to wash them well and cover them with attractive fabrics and colored ribbons. They can be glued together and even fixed to the wall. These cans will allow you to organize the pencils to find them quickly and they will be spectacular in the study area of the children.
Cereal boxes as separators
The boxes of cereals can become excellent separadores to place them in the shelving . Inside you can put magazines, notebooks and papers of all kinds,helping us to classify and maintain orderly space.
To convert cereal boxes into separators, it is enough to cut them partially diagonally and cover them with colored paper . You can use wrapping paper or any other type of paper that is attractive and colorful. The ideal is to use different colors and motives so that the children’s study area looks more cheerful.
Glass jars for small items
Glass jars can become containers for small desktop objects that are always lost. Clips, rubbers, staples, etc. They will always be at hand and organized. Let’s not forget that good organization means better use of large and small objects.
To recycle these jars, the first thing to do is wash them thoroughly with hot water. Then we can choose some plastic animals and stick them on the covers. Once the glue has dried well and the figures have fixed well to the lids, we paint the lids and the animals with spray paint.
All these crafts are an excellent way to organize the study area of children in a simple, different and also very cheap way. They also help us give a new life to objects that would otherwise end up in the trash.
