No no not camping.
Last Spring I had this idea (or really stole this idea from a Martha Stewart book) for Homework Centers for the boys. See they always bug each other at the table and/or mess around. My friend asked me about them and I SWORE I blogged it then but apprently I hadn't. Bad bad blogger but HEY it's back to school time. What better time to get it out there for my peeps (or others peeps...LOL).
So off I was to gather my supplies......
Duct tape (in red and blue), HUGE rubber bands (multicolors), binder clips, index card boxes, and a display board.
Then I cut the huge display board in half cause really it doesn't need to be THAT big. Look at that cute little paring knife - IN PINK - of course.
Then I took the duct tape and covered the cut edges. Looks nice huh. Randomly add the large rubber bands. They make great paper holders. I even used two to hold the index card boxes on the board. Here they can put pencials and what not handy. Throw a couple of the binder clips along the top and viola! There you have it. A wonderful homework center.
