One of my wishes for my ‘dream learning room’ is an art centre. As that event will be some time away I gave some thought as to how I could set up a temporary centre. My requirements were for a compact centre that contained the majority of supplies. We also needed a way to scoop all supplies off the table and away into the cupboard for meal times.
Thinking I needed something like a tray I ventured into the shed to see what I could find. Imagine my delight when I spied this ‘builders box’ I had forgotten all about scooping up at a garage sale last year. Just perfect to hold tins of scissors, watercolours, sketch pencils, pencil sharpeners, erasers, block crayons, glue, pastels etc.
I also tidied up the regular pencil trays. When art supplies are attractively arranged children naturally want to pick up pencils and draw.
The children drew all day:)
