Homework Central

Today the boys and I created fun homework stations as a get-ready-for-school activity. I saw the idea in Family Fun magazine this month, and knew it was perfect for my privacy-craving sons. I don't know about your kids, but my kids have always created their own barriers or cubicles at the table out of their notebooks and binders when they study. This is a perfect solution for them, and it was a cute way to get them organized, which both of my boys are big on.


To Office Depot we went, gasping at the flames still burning on the mountains, and holding our breath as we dashed for the store. Great deals today! Putting them together was fun and easy, and they now have something to make them look forward to doing their homework. The only thing we couldn't find at Office Depot was a little adhesive clock, which both of them want, so I'll look around and we'll add that.



The first day of school is right around the corner! One more week!

My daughter pointed this very thing out to me at the stylist yesturday when we were waiting for my son's haircut to finish. I loved the idea but questioned on whether or not the kids would really use them. Hmmmm. Maybe it's worth the investment. I don't have the magazine though--maybe it's online.

That's a pretty cute idea! I remember when I was in school and would stand binders and books up for privacy!

Hey, is there paint or something on your camera's lens?

That's a great idea! What kind of board is that? Just cardboard that you folded?

Maybe you can find a little clock w/a clip on the back that can clip to the top?

P.S. I posted my sour cream blueberry cakeness.

Love that idea. Hope the fires aren't burning too close to your home now.

The smoke here in Las Vegas has been crazy and I just think of all the Southern Californians who have it a lot worse. Hope you & your family are well.

Cool station.
I've banned cereal boxes from the table the first time they started building up a wall. I'm not ready for that yet.
