Back to school is upon us, and with that comes the often-excruciating evening homework grind. Convincing kids they have to sit down and focus on math “number sentences” and writing exercises after a summer of free-spirited play can be like taming wild antelopes. But we have a solution: a totally fun (and organized) homework station.
All it takes is a few engaging accoutrements for the kids (see unicorn tape dispenser and ice pop highlighters below, please) and some thoughtful planning implements for you (a pegboard and wall calendars) to keep everything and everyone on track. Throw in a desk and chair if you don’t have a dedicated space and, seriously, they might be asking their teachers why they can’t have more math to do at night!
