The school year may be in full swing, but it’s never too late to revamp the family’s homework routine! Setting aside a specific area in the house for homework is the first step to keeping the kids focused and your home organized! Even if you don’t have the space to create a special study room, these decorating tricks can help you maximize homework time anywhere in the house!
Be Ready with Extra Supplies
Limit distractions by having extra supplies readily available in a movable cart. You’ll keep wandering hands and feet from rummaging through drawers and searching the house for pencils, pens, tape, and anything else they may need to complete their work. It’s like having a mobile homework space!
Surround Them with Positivity
Sometimes all it takes is an extra dose of encouragement. When the math problems are tough and the chapters are long, help your student stay super-charged with positive wall quotes or wall décor that makes them feel like they can conquer the world…or at least their next test!
Hang a memo board to keep track of important due dates for the rest of the semester. You can also hang a basket to hold assignments that still need to be completed. That way, there’s no chance of something getting lost in the backpack abyss!
A Place for Everything
If you have room to set aside a special desk or table that’s just for homework, keep it organized and super stylish with desk accessories that make homework fun. That’s right—fun! Can you tell I was one of those kids that preferred reading over recess? Coordinating desk accessories help transform stress into style!
