When you have a child who wakes up every morning and the first thing she wants to do is get her arts and crafts on, you have to have some sort of system in place for the girl. Now when my girls were toddlers, I did NOT give them full range of the glitter glue (after they painted my white office bookcase lavender) because I am no longer a moron. I may be blonde, but I pay close to $10 for that box of bleach and I learn from my mistakes.
Art SuppliesNow the munchkins are in grade school, having their art supplies accessible near a table with good lighting and flooring that is easy to clean is perfecto! If only I could wrap them and the room in a tarp, and not have the neighbors call the police again on us (I joke a bit…about the police; I’m standing firm about desiring the tarp).
I am not going to boast and say that my system is clean or in anyway organized because my chillen don’t roll that way – after all they are extremely creative. The youngest believes in the draw and drop method, but we are working on that because she is really afraid my head might explode.
I do have a what I feel is the perfect fix for the ugliest, yet functional art supply system around; so I’d like to share my masterpiece with you:
*DRUM ROLL, DR. SCHOLL** (I always love a man who can play the drums with his feet!)
