os top picks---arts & crafts organization

Another popular area amongst most household, especially with children, is arts and crafts storage organization. If left unstructured and systemless, arts and crafts items can take over the home, leaving an overwhelming presence and a underwhelming sense of worth. img_4832

By developing an organizational and methodical system to storing arts and crafts supplies, craft time is a breeze, with cleanup being even easier. Here are several options, which work with large and small spaces alike.

Glass and/or plastic jars can be used for corralling markers, colored pencils, writing utensils, paint brushes, glitter, beads, etc. Simple baskets can house paint, jarred glitter, markers, scissors, etc. Magazine files and Bigso storage boxes house construction paper, stickers, coloring books, drawing tablets and paper. A raskog cart allows the materials to be mobile, easily pulling to an area to complete a craft and rolled away when finished. If no space permits the cart, a bookshelf with designated shelves for arts and craft materials works just as well.
