The Homework Supply Kit

You can help your child considerably in cutting down on wasted time spent searching the house for necessary homework supplies and materials. Not only is it a frustrating waste of precious minutes, but it also causes a major break in productivity, pulling your child unnecessarily off-task.

This homework supply kit can be stored in anything portable, preferably a lightweight container with a lid. Some children work at their desks, or on kitchen or dining room tables; others prefer to spread out on their beds or the floor. With this system, where your child chooses to study doesn't matter. The necessary supplies can accompany her anywhere.
