School is back in session which means we've stocked up on school supplies for both at school and at home. When my son is in school, his desire to color and do crafts at home increases because he's used to doing them 3 days a week at school. We've always kept his art supplies in a basket, but we've broken so many crayons and ended up with dried out markers because the lids would come off. I started thinking of better ways to store his supplies and instead of buying a plastic caddy from the store, I decided to make one myself.
This is so simple to make and only needs a few supplies:
-Empty plastic container cut down to about 2" tall (I used a wipe container)
-Toilet paper roll
After cutting down your plastic container to size, you can start covering it and the toilet paper roll in Washi tape. I really wanted some animals on the Washi tape, but my Nugget insisted on the rainbow print one.
Put hot glue around the edge of one side of the toilet paper roll.
Stick it down into the center of the larger plastic container and hold it down for a minute to ensure it stays put.
That's it! Add your supplies and the caddy is finished. This honestly took almost no time to make and it's such a cute way to store school or art supplies.
Happy Back to School!
