Kids Art Caddy

Today, we have another great craft in our series, A Craft Made By You.   My friend Andrea from Decorating Cents is great at decorating her home on a budget and today she’s here sharing a tutorial for creating a Kids Art Caddy.  I love this totally cute idea!

My daughter loves to draw and craft.  However, her craft supplies are everywhere.  She’s got markers and crayons downstairs and another stash upstairs in her room.  She also needs these items for homework sometimes.  It was always a pain trying to keep up with where everything was.  I decided it was time to change that.  She needed one spot where she could keep all her things.

I went to the dollar store to see what items they had that I could use.  I came out with a small bucket and this chalkboard.Kids Art Caddy - 3

I wanted to label the bucket.  I cut the chalkboard into a small rectangle so I could attach it to the front.  It was cardboard so it was very easy to cut with scissors.  I was originally going to paint a square on the front of the bucket with chalkboard paint but this was way easier.Kids Art Caddy - 4

I attached it to the front with double sided tape.  I keep a drawer of craft stuff too.  That also needs to be organized, but that’s another post.  I like to keep the cans from canned foods.  They come in handy for things like this.  I grabbed three since that’s what would fit in my caddy.  I gathered up my daughter’s markers and colored pencils.  I also rounded up stray pencils and scissors.  These supplies fit perfectly in the cans.

Now she has a caddy to keep her art supplies.  She can bring it downstairs when doing homework or take it to her room when she wants to be by herself.
