If there's one thing to dread with the start of the new school year, it's the battle with your kids over nightly homework. Getting kids to sit down and do their homework is one of the hardest parts of our job as parents. The same is true for our high school and college students as well, only you have less control over their habits.
One sure way to get little ones or big kids alike excited about homework is to create a comfortable and creative study space/workspace dedicated especially to them. Whether in-home or dorm, I have gathered up some of the most useful, practical, and fun items to help you create the most inspiring workstation around.
These must-have essentials work in abundant spaces as well as tight quarters. Your reading nook will be inspirational and functional, but most importantly, it will be a destination your kids will love! Let’s check them out!
Let’s start with the MUST-HAVES and MUST NOT HAVES:
Next, let’s explore desk org essentials:
For youngsters, avoid distracting hunts for colored pencils by putting together a supply caddy packed with the basics: pencils, erasers, crayons, markers, highlighters, glue, white-out, scissors, etc. It can be placed on the workstation desk or it can be stored in a cabinet or drawer. The divided turntable can be used with, or instead, of the portable caddy. You can’t go wrong with either, so maybe you want both?
mDESIGN TIP - create a routine for homework time. Start by having them pick out a fun lamp for their desk, then, each day at the same time, ask your son or daughter to pull out the supply caddy and turn on the desk lamp. This simple routine every day will help manage your child’s expectations each day and will allow them to settle into the task at hand.
For dormers, make the best use of the space you have.
In most cases, you are restricted to working with the furniture that the university provides you, as well as having to accommodate a roommate’s preferences. But don’t let that discourage you–view it as a reason to get creative. If all else fails, head over to your local coffee shop and create your own portable study space.
Although going back to school means doing homework, it doesn’t have to be a drag. Now is the perfect time to design a space that is personalized for your child, making it perfect for their needs…and I know they will love it!
