I don’t like a lot of clutter but with three kids in the house I do have to make some compromises. I’ve set up an art centre in my dining room because I was finding that without it all the art supplies would just be left on the dining room table. This way when the kids are finished with their workbooks or coloring they can put them away on the shelf until the next time. I get to keep my dining room table cleared off yet they still have easy access. At one time I did try to keep all the art supplies downstairs in the basement but it never caught on with the kids because they like to do their projects where I am. So usually this is what they do while I’m cooking dinner or baking in the kitchen. Here is a picture of it.
