There are so many small items that are in a kids craft room. Where do you put all the colored pencils, markers, and paper? Let alone the glitter, fabric paint, and craft kits. Art areas need to be well-organized to help the child be able to find what they are looking for and assist the parent to know where all the supplies need to go. By keeping it organized, it will help stay focused and be more creative. Now, isn’t that better than electronic games? I think so.
Craft Art Area Organization Tips
As you may notice in the photo above, this client had purchased several small drawers for smaller items. They worked out nicely because the drawers could come out of the storage unit for use on the table and be able to return quickly to the unit for storing.
These large bins houses purchase craft kits for various art projects and particular theme projects like candle making.
We labeled every drawer, container, and bin so the parents and the children would know where the supplies belonged.
We stored heavier supply bins at the bottom shelves that were purchased from IKEA and interlocked them together, so it made one large unit that was quite sturdy. We also added earthquake straps for even more protection.
Tip: Keeping the table clear after a project is complete, keeps the room neat and tidy and will allow all the children to use the table for school projects that may come up throughout the year.
If you do not like the craft items out in the open, you can do something like this, where you use organizers in the drawers and cabinet area.
Either way, it works for kids craft room organization.
Tip: Allow your children to be involved in the designing of their craft room. If your kids like to paint, buy plain wood shelves and have the kids paint and design them their favorite color. Then, add the decorative craft bins to the shelves.
By taking the time and doing kids craft room organization now, it will help your child find items and know where to return them.
