Homework Helpers: How to Make a DIY Homework Box for Your Kids!

Getting your kids to sit down and do their homework can sometimes be challenging. Kids find all kinds of excuses to avoid getting their work started. You might hear them say, “Mom, I can’t find a pencil” or “I need to get my markers.” Help prepare your kids by making a “homework box.” Use a small, plastic-covered storage bin and fill it with: 

  • pencils
  • erasers
  • pens
  • crayons
  • markers
  • glue
  • scissors 
  • anything else they may need to accomplish their tasks

These supplies should only be used for homework, so keep it in a place that your kids won’t be tempted to grab it for fun.
