In my kitchen I've got a great shelving unit from IKEA with drawers for my kids' crafts, playdough, etc. From the outside you'd think I'm a really organized person.
Till you pull them open.
But I refused to be daunted. I've been focusing on my kitchen lately, so I couldn't avoid this mess forever.
Here's the after!
The main thing I have been learning through all this decluttering is that drawers need to be subdivided. Baskets, tupperware bins & repurposed boxes are great for this!
It's hard to know what to keep when you're decluttering kid's craft drawers. I don't want to be so overwhelmed with stuff that we don't have the will to put together a craft, but I also want to have lots of opportunity for creativity.
However, as long as the basics are covered, we're pretty good: colouring supplies, paint, glue, scissors, scrap paper, and beads. I'm sure we can add lib with other stuff as it comes along. (Toilet paper rolls, tissue paper from gifts, christmas & birthday cards...)
What crafty items do you love to keep on hand for your little ones?
P.S. The audio visual drawer has to be conquered another day...
