Create a Mobile Homework Station

Create a Mobile Homework Station



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

Mobile Homework Station-8
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.

Mobile Homework Station-7
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!

Mobile Homework Station-6
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!

Mobile Homework Station-15
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!

Potty training twins is so much different than potty training one child at a time! Here are some tips I have learned through this milestone with my girls.

Tips for Potty Training Twins


I am happy to tell you that I have successfully potty trained 4 boys! Each one of them learned slightly different, but we survived the transition from diapers to Pull-Ups® Learning Designs® to  underwear with all four. Now it’s time for the girls! Read more

When you have six kids and 3 business the survival of motherhood becomes a challenge. You are not just a mom, you are not just a boss, you are not just a house keeper or a wife. You are a multi-hyphenate woman! Just one word could not define you.

I can hardly believe I have been a mom for 9 years. I know that it is a very long time, but with six children under my wing, I think I can claim the motherhood badge!
