We've posted tips for organizing art supplies in the past. I have a particular spot where the kids do art projects so I've always looked for storage and organization ideas that were more or less stationary. But if art projects can spontaneously take place anywhere in the house (or maybe even outdoors), you might want something more portable.
That's why we think Hillary's idea of creating an art cart is so smart. She shows us on Wee Wonderfuls the art cart she created for her kids using a metal cart from IKEA, some organization bins and wheels. The whole project cost less than $10 not including the art supplies (she found some bargains at IKEA)! The art cart keeps everything organized in one central location but allows art projects to happen anywhere the mood strikes.
Check out Hillary's blog Wee Wonderfuls for more details about her fun project.
