Back to School Homework Stations

by Melissa

If you can, believe it or not, we are back in homework mode and homework mode means the motivation to do homework.

Getting kids to do their homework is easier when they have a great homework station and environment to work in.

Check out these back to school homework stations and study room ideas.

If you are heading back to school, whether your a parent of a kid or in college yourself these homework stations are a great way to motivate you to work.

Even if they don’t get your kid excited for actually doing the homework, at least they will get their desk organized.

That goes for elementary, middle, high school and even college kids too.

Anyone can make one of these in their home, and it doesn’t have to be complicated! 

Create a dedicated back to school homework station for the kids with these simple and inspiring ideas.


This Ikea Raskog is the perfect organizer for doing homework at home.

Great for use in college where you have limited space to keep all of your supplies from books to pens. It also works great for you homeschooling mamas too.

Don’t have enough room for a specific homework desk? How about this neat seat sack idea from Scissors and Spatulas.

Just hang it on your dining chair and your homework is ready to go when you are.

We have used these organizers for all sorts of items but how awesome is it with all your school supplies?

I love that use for the back of the door! You can see all the supplies and make sure that your family has enough of everything. That would make it easy to keep my daughter accountable for putting away her supplies as well. After each homework session, I could easily check the supplies and ask her to return any that are missing.
