I can't believe that summer is coming to a close and kids will be heading back to school soon. Wasn't it just the first of June? It's been a very busy summer here, and we're gearing up to start our at-home preschool program this fall. Lincoln and Addie are both so excited - they can't wait! Anytime we do a project that includes letters, numbers, paint, or glue, they are thrilled.

To get our schoolroom ready, I wanted to put together something to hold their basic craft supplies. I'm much more likely to sit down for craft projects multiple times a week if the supplies don't have to be dragged out of boxes and bins. It was a pretty quick project - only took part of a morning to make.


DIY Kid's Craft Station
Supplies Needed
-Tray
-Bowl
-Small Candlestick
-Spray Paint
-Glue (you can use something strong like E6000 - but hot glue might work depending on your materials)
-Craft Supplies


To make the craft station, find a tray and bowl to use for your storage area. Mine are made out of very light plastic, so they won't hold up any really heavy craft supplies. For the small items I'm using they turned out fine, but I might get a heavier plastic when I make another one! Step one is to spray paint the tray, bowl, and candlestick. Once they have dried, you just glue them together with the candlestick between the two pieces.


Once your craft station is put together, you can head to Walmart to stock up on school supplies while you wait for the glue to dry! Our list of supplies, of course, included Scotch® Magic Tape. There's no way we could get through preschool crafts without it! I found the Scotch® Magic Tape in both the stationary and seasonal sections at Walmart.


We stocked up on other preschool craft supplies too, and went home to get our craft station all set up.


With supplies like googly eyes, paper fasteners, craft sticks, and pom-poms, I know we will be able to create endless projects this school year.


I had to get some Post-It® Notes, too - in our house, we can never have too many of those. The kids love playing with them and I love that Post-It® products always stick securely, yet remove cleanly.


Which 3M products are essentials on your back to school shopping list? How much Scotch® Tape do you use in a typical school year?
