Art Caddy

Your students have an art project to do and you need to have the supplies ready and easily accessible. The cheapest and most versatile thing to have is an art caddy.

This colorful plastic caddy features one large and two smaller compartments for toting around all your student's art supplies such as markers, pencils, crayons, scissors, glue sticks, glue, etc. You can even put individual containers in the compartments to have lots of different craft supplies available for the students to use. (You can also use a cleaning caddy as an art caddy. They are relatively the same thing.)

*TIP: Just put what supplies the students need to make the craft in the art caddy and place it in the middle of the table. Avoid putting extra supplies in the art caddy that are not needed to make the craft. Students will probably use them and craft supplies can be limited in some CCD programs. Students will also tend to make a bigger mess when too many craft supplies are available for them to use.

They also are great to stuff things like salt & pepper, silverware, napkins, condiments, etc. in and take to the back patio to have dinner.

I will have to use those with our three youngest next year when homeschooling starts up again. They would love these.

These are great! My students enjoy cleaning up now when everything has its place. :)
