Halloween is the most last-minute holiday in North America. In our youth, we’d find an old sheet when we got back from school, cut out eye-holes and call ourselves ghosts.
These days, kids are a little more demanding, albeit no more decisive when it comes to picking out costumes. The closer we get to the holiday, the fewer store-bought options there are, meaning that the lion’s share of costume crafting may come down to DIY efforts.
At times like these, it pays to have a well-organized craft room.
- Lots of clear counter space gives you and the little ones room to create and experiment.
- Horizontal cubbies store construction paper, leftover fabric, sheets of felt and more.
- A slat wall with hanging hooks and storage cups keep things like scissors, glue sticks and markers within arm’s reach.
- Your sewing machine could live here, too, sitting on a lower counter, making it easier to follow the lines of intricate shapes.
When your craft room is organized like this, the only limits are those of your imaginations.
