Lockers

There are certain things that you can not make just like school when you are homeschooling. However, there are certain things that are a right of passage and  I whole heartedly believe in my kids getting to experience them. They may be little things, but when you are twelve…they are pretty big.

Lockers.

We have some. They got a make over this year. The kids each get to decorate their own. We spent very little on this project. Two cans of spray paint and a few sheets of scrapbook paper. Duct tape and scrapbook embellishments were already on hand. You are also going to need some magnets. Lakeshore carries a pack of about a gajillion little circle magnets with adhesive on one side. These are the perfect solution for your locker sticking on fun paper needs. $7.99 is all.

Oh yeah, he has one too. Inside are buckets of toys that I will rotate for play during school hours.

This year we also added locks. I mean the experience needs to be complete right?

Locker decorating is serious business people. You wouldn’t believe the products out there. Locker chandelier anyone? There is rugs, wallpaper, flowers, drapes and more.

The kids are loving their own spaces and I think I have finally taught them how to close the doors without slamming them.

Which brings me to the first of our major changes in our classroom this year. Last year I had a student side and a teacher side. Our rooms face each other and make one giant room. I had the computer, the lockers, the big worktable, etc. all on one side. No bueno. Everything got separated out this year. It was too distracting all in one space.

More soon…

    Cute colors and cute insides! We have lockers, but they are downstairs in our basement holding all of our coats. I will have to remember this if we ever change up our coat storage. Thankfully I have a few years until my kids would be in middle school to even miss having lockers. 🙂

    Where did you get your lockers? This would be a great solution for keeping the younger kids out of the older kids’ treasured possessions.
