10 Minute Office Tidy Tip 85: Homework Projects

by shannon on August 12, 2013

What do you do with the huge homework projects and reports that children have to make, that take a long time, and need to be left out? How do they get stored once the assignment is completed? I will try to answer these questions one at a time.

First of all, how to store the project or creative report depends on what it is made out of. If it can be carefully rolled up while not being worked on, securing it with a rubber band or in a mailing tube should protect it from damage. If it can’t be rolled up, then you need to get creative about where to store a large, flat item without it being crushed. You also don’t want to put it too far out of sight because it might be forgotten. Look for very high horizontal surfaces that could be used for temporary storage such as the tops of cabinets. Also look low for possible storage places like on the floor under a piece of furniture.

The next tip discusses storage of art supplies but if you feel like you are running out of flat storage space and you child has decided that they really, really want to keep this huge project they made, perhaps you can store it on top of the flat art papers. Or if they are old enough to take responsibility for it, they can get creative about where they want to store it in their room. On the wall or under the bed seem like the most obvious solutions.
