DIY Craft Station for Kids

“I’m cur­rently in the process of set­ting up a new craft stu­dio to cor­ral all of the projects that have slowly begun to take over our house. The inten­tion was to cre­ate a space for “mommy’s projects,” but it quickly caught the inter­est of my lit­tle ones. What could be cooler than a room filled with art supplies?”

 “It quickly became clear that keep­ing the kids out of mommy’s craft sup­plies would require set­ting them up with a few of their own. I decided to set up a space for the kids in the stu­dio and then headed off to the the start­ing point for all projects of this nature, Home Depot.”

The desk works well as a stand­ing work­bench or can be used with just about any stool or chair. The five gal­lon Home Depot “Homer” bucket is inex­pen­sive and makes an ideal stool for a child work­ing at the desk. It also serves dou­ble duty by pro­vid­ing plenty of room inside for stor­ing craft supplies.

Here’s a basic shop­ping list and instruc­tions for the craft sta­tion if you’d like to build one of your own, as well as instruc­tions for build­ing a sim­ple craft stor­age cubby using PVC pipe. Every­thing you need can be found at your local Home Depot store.
