It is hard for me to believe that my twin girls will soon be in Kindergarten. And while this mom is having a bit of a hard time watching her “babies” go off to school, I know that they are ready. We have full-day Kindergarten and the students are not given homework. Parents are, instead, asked to reinforce skills and practice newly learned concepts.
To get them excited about the new school year, we did a little organizing to create a little work space for them. I wanted it to be a good place to choose a book, practice letter sounds and writing or do some coloring. I chose a small table in their play area and added magazine holders for their favorite books, paper, and workbooks, as well as a bin for flash-cards and other materials.
I also decided to make them a quick tabletop organizer for all their markers, crayons, pencils and scissors. This easy project is fun and quick.
What You Need:
- Aluminum Cans – Washed/Labels Removed. (Choose a number that will ‘stack” well, pyramid style. I chose 3, but I’ve also made this with 5 or 6 cans. You can also use smaller or bigger sized cans based on what you’ll be storing.)
- Scrapbook paper
- Craft Glue
- Hot Glue Gun
To start, measure how much paper you will need to go around each can and cut to size.. Cover the entire surface of the can with the crafting glue and cover each can. IMPORTANT: Depending on the can, the inside edge of the can could be sharp after opening. I corrected this by smoothing the sharp edges with a heavy grade sandpaper. You can also use a steel file. Just make sure you don’t skip this step to keep those little fingers safe!
Next, stack the cans and hot glue all areas of contact with your hot glue gun. Allow to dry fully.
You can use your organizer on its side or standing up. Either way, it’s a simple way to create some storage.
Along with our new organizer, I also keep Wet Ones® Hand Wipes readily available. These are a great way to wipe little hands after a snack, or if they get their hands dirty with glue, paint or snacks. Added to that, keeping their hands clean is just good practice. Let’s face it, Kindergartners have lots of germs. Wet Ones® Hand Wipes clean up those messy hands and kill 99.99% of germs. It’s the convenient 2-in-1 way to wipe out dirt and messes when water is not available.
You can find great savings on Wet Ones® with this Ibotta offer.
My kids reach for these all the time!
