Elmer's #Canyoutopthis Tri-fold Display Challenge

For the Elmer's #Canyoutopthis project Andrew and I worked on making a new homework station to help keep him more organized. He has been struggling with being organized most of the school year, so I thought this might help him to keep all his work in one place.

We used all recycled products. We had an Elmer's tri-fold board from one of his school projects that we had been saving in his closet. We took it out and up-cycled it.

Andrew loves space, so we made it with a space theme. The best part of this homework station is that there was no talking during homework time. There was just enough separation between the kids to really help keep Andrew focused.

He helped me make it and was really proud of what we made together. The best part of doing this project was that we got a chance to do it together.

Andrew loves all his Elmer's supplies
