Keep all your writing utensils, school supplies and other homework materials in one area with a Lazy Susan homework station. This eye-catching station may actually make doing homework fun, and is space- and time-efficient. Get the kids involved with the colors and sticker selection when making it. The project could take a couple of days to complete due to the drying time needed for the paint.
Things You'll Need
- Newspaper or tarp
- 15-inch wooden Lazy Susan
- White spray paint
- Any color spray paint (optional)
- Fine to medium grit sand paper (optional)
- 2 washi paper tape rolls (any colors or prints)
- 7 steel galvanized or painted pots (4 3/4-inch top diameter)
- Various foam stickers (optional and in any colors, shapes or sizes as long as they fit on the steel pots)
- 7 1/2-inch screws and drill (optional)
Step 2: Decorate the Pots
With the washi (paper) tape, decorate each pot. If you want to further embellish the pots, use foam stickers.
Step 3: Decorate the Base
When the Lazy Susan is dry, decorate the surface with washi tape if you'd like.
Step 4: Add Supplies and Use
Place the pots on the Lazy Susan, starting with the center pot. Then fill each pot with supplies such as pencils, colored pencils, pens, crayons, markers, a calculator, ruler and other measuring tools.
To ensure that your pots will stay in place while turning the Lazy Susan, use 1/2-inch screws and drill the screws through the inside bottom of each pot onto the Lazy Susan.
