Kid's Work Space

My kids have a big craft area in their playroom but I also wanted to create a space in our dining room to store craft and school supplies.  Usually while in the kitchen making dinner, the kids are coloring/ doing school pages.  I also didn't want to turn yet another room in our home into a kid zone.

So, I took a small portion of our dining room hutch and dedicated this space to kids craft supplies.  I used large pencil boxes (one for Matthew, one for Lilly) to hold markers, colored pencils, scissors, pencils, glue.  I also have a pencil box with just crayons.  The larger bin is just for Mommy.  The kids know they aren't allowed to use those items unless I get them out.  They include watercolors, glitter, paint brushes, stickers.

On the lower shelf I have 2 Melissa and Doug Stamp Sets, washable paints, and a binder with some school printables. 

The kids can easily pull out the supplies they need, but at the same time, it is all easily tucked away and you barely notice it when put back.

I love having a space from them to work where we can spread out to create crafts, work on school work together, and it be close for me to multi-task and prepare a meal/put away dishes.
