I have shown you all how I keep the craft cabinet organized. This craft cabinet is for the items I don't mind my children getting into without my supervision/permission.
But then there are items that are only allowed to come out when I am there and can supervise. These items are out of arms reach. But how do I keep them all together in one easy-to-grab spot? Simple!
Below are photos of how I have organized these items. All in one easy-to-grab case. Perfect for art projects, everything we need is at hand in one location. Also makes clean up a breeze.
Items included are:
- 2 pks Watercolors (I have two children)
- 1 pack of oil pastels
- 1 pack of chalk pastels
- 1 small watercolor
- 1 pack of paintbrushes (for mommy)
- 4 other paint brushes for children
- watercolor pencils (mostly for me, but my oldest will be using them soon)
- 6 bottles of tempera paint
- 2 paint trays
- 4 paint cups
- 2 pairs of scissors
- 2 pencils
- one paint marker (for me)
- Pack of watercolor paper
- Pack of drawing paper
- Pack of construction paper
- 6 mat frames for artwork
- 2 plastic cups for water
- One bottle of white glue
- glue sticks
The container I found at T.J Maxx for $3. The little Christmas bucket was a gift from one my husbands co-workers (filled with candy). I figured since it's inside the container, it didn't matter that there were Christmas trees on it.
This works perfectly for us. I don't have to worry about items getting messed up, lost, or ruining my home. I love this little container.
Just seeing it all sitting there, together, makes me want to create. I mean really, just LOOK at those watercolors, so beautiful!
