One solution I just thought of and will quickly try is to use an extra large cosmetic box, like the one I use to organize my nail care supplies. I also have one for all my other cosmetics. I purchased the two from Target in the cosmetic section for $17.00 or $20.00. So keep this solution in mind.

For Christmas last year I bought four clear storage tubs with lids that had graphic designs on them and filled them with all kinds of art stuff; color books and crayons, sketch pads, markers, ruler, scissors, glitter glue, colored pencils, etc. What you put in them would depend on age of the child. The size of the tub would depend on what all you want to put in them.

Then I got letter stickers and put their names on the ends of the tubs so that they could store them on a shelf and stack them if there was more than one child in the room and they could tell at a glance which tub was there. I did buy deeper tubs so that they could add supplies that they liked and I didn't put in them and to make sure that there was enough room for them to also keep their art work in the tubs. This has cut down on so much clutter on all the clutter in the grandbabies rooms having everything in one place.

My daughter loves to use markers and colored pencils. So, I found this rotating utensil holder at a garage sale (the ones for spatulas, whisks, ladles, etc.) The one I found was Pampered Chef and only a $1. I sorted all her markers both thick and thin into the different compartments by color. Now she doesn't have to dig through a tub of markers or try and keep them in their original paper box. She just gives it a little spin and the rainbow of colors turns right to the one she needs!
