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!
