As we are all getting into back-to-school mode, we start to reorganize and create healthy working areas for our kids. One great way to encourage your kids to continue learning at home is to make them a DIY homework station. Here are our five favorites from Pinterest.
This is one of the simplest homework stations on Pinterest, but that's why we love it! Simply buy a craft or kitchen cart (approx. $30), fill the shelves with bright storage baskets, and then add all of the necessary homework supplies. Allowing your kids to have easy access to all of their materials is a great way to promote homework independence!
This mom was fed up of her daughter's desk constantly being covered in clutter. So she came up with this genius hideaway homework desk and storage station! What a great space-saver!
If you have older kids, it is important to keep homework stations minimalistic and trendy. We love this simple DIY IKEA hack and all of the cool storage it offers. Plenty of room for tech devices on the desk too!
If you are short on space at home and want something that is portable, this dollar store hack is perfect! All it takes is a shower caddy, some spray paint, a few cups, a pretty chalkboard sign and all of the essential homework supplies. Making one of these for each of your kids is a fun way to declutter stationary supplies and ensure they will always have what they need.
This fun station makes the most of displaying work, which is great for boosting confidence and showing appreciation for what your kids are busy producing. We love how it was made by upcycling old kids furniture rather than splashing out on new gear.
Which station would work best for your family? It's all about keeping supplies decluttered and giving your kids a pleasant workspace to help encourage learning.

Learning about symmetry is way more fun when you get to play with building bricks, especially our Pixel Bricks™! We are sharing a really fun and hands-on way to learn an early Math concept through an invitation to decorate butterfly wings.
Here are a few of our favorite April Fool's Day prank ideas we've done to our kids over the years. Most of which are last minute ideas (cause that's how we roll)!
Creative QT® co-owner, Adam Hinkle, lovingly refers toPixel Bricks™ as 'LEGO™ glitter' because they do seem to have a way of finding their way all over the floor if not properly stored. The good news is, however, we have loads of simple and affordable ways to store them all in this one blog.
