Create a Mobile Homework Station



Make homework time a cinch and create a mobile homework station complete with Goldfish® crackers for a snack!

My husband and I were just looking at the calendar this weekend and realized we are a MONTH away from school starting!!!

How did summer fly by so quickly? School supplies, backpacks, and all things Back-to-School are popping up everywhere. Soon the routines of the school year will need to be put back into place.

We have really enjoyed the summer, but I am determined to be prepared for the upcoming school year. With two in preschool, two in Kindergarten, a second grader and a fourth grader, I know I will need to be organized and ready to tackle before and after school routines.

Last year was slightly chaotic when it came to getting homework done. The boys were always scrambling looking for crayons, pencils, erasers, glue, and other supplies necessary for completing their assignments.

I don’t want to repeat that chaos. So I created this easy mobile homework station that can simple roll out of the closet to the table whenever homework time is ready.

It’s loaded with all the supplies they could need for homework assignments; down to their favorite Goldfish® for a snack while they work!

All you need to create a mobile homework station is a rolling cart, several small baskets or buckets, school supplies like markers, pencils, erasers, glue, etc… paper, and anything else that your child usually uses to complete his homework.

I like when things are clearly marked so the children have no excuse to put things back exactly where they are supposed to! I found some cute clips and labeled them with tape.

Now they can get out exactly what they need and put it back in the container they got it from and place it back on the cart with ease. No excuses for a mess!

I honestly love homework time most days!

It’s a great time to sit at the table with my kids and work closely with them. Asking them questions about their day, what they are learning, sharing our Goldfish® crackers, and telling jokes to each other. We have more than once fallen off chairs laughing from the silly things my kids say!



I feel ready to conquer the afternoon back to school routine with this homework station! It’s one more thing checked off the list and ready to create a great start to the new school year!

    Our kids don’t go back to school until September so my thoughts haven’t even turned to homework yet. I really need to get something like this for my kids. The more organized I am, the more successful they are!

    What a fun and smart idea that I wish I had thought of when my kids were younger. The best part is making sure you have a snack handy for the hungry kiddos while they work hard on their homework. Here’s to a successful school year!

    I love that cart! It’s such a pretty color. It’s great that it has wheels so it can be moved around to wherever the kids are doing work.

    When we homeschooled I had a mobile station like this one. Now, I have the homework suppiles in a cabinet right by the table they work at! Easy breezy!

    Great homework station! It definitely eliminates every excuse – from my pencil broke – to my stomach is growling.
