Here's the problem...
I have these desks:
|From the beginning of the year, looks quite different now!|
They're nice because you don't have to worry about a mess in the desk, but the issue is where to keep the items you would usually keep inside the desk. As you can see, I keep workbooks and folders in the colored bins by the window. Each table group is assigned a color, and that works great.
My problem is their crayon boxes! Keeping them on top of their desks means about a million and five more times they get dropped on the floor, explode the contents all over, and need to be picked up than when you keep them inside a desk. This class also had a tendency to fight over the placement of them and grab each others to drive the other kid (and the teacher!) nutso.
So, here's my plan...
I want tabletop organizers that have 4 equal-sized compartments to hold all the typical crayon box contents. Ideally, these organizers would come in various colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple) to correspond with my table colors.
Here's the best options I've seen so far:
|fiskars art caddy (only comes in orange as far as I can see)|
|bar caddy (only in white)|
|8 compartment wooden caddy|
|Best option so far, comes in all the colors, but the compartments aren't equal-sized :o(|
Does anyone have something that works great and comes in multiple colors? Or just something that works great?
