The classic waist apron is traditionally used to carry around supplies for crafting, handy work or gardening. But it also is the perfect peice to transform into a seat organizer for the classroom? The pockets are deep, and can hold a lot of supplies. Whether its for a specific unit, lesson or center, this classroom idea is a great way to hold supplies in an easily accessible way.
For this classroom idea, simply tie the waist aprons around the back of your chairs. Super easy, right?! Each student in the classroom could have a seat organizer on the back of their chair or you could utilize this classroom idea in the art room or for groups of students to share.
Tyng the apron strings around a chair instantly creates a neat organizer with pockets. If you are worried about fiddly apron strings and distracted hands, a bit of velcro would also be an excellent fastener.
The possibilities for this classroom idea are endless. The apron can be painted and personalized with students names. It can also be easily washed when needed and used nearly anywhere in the classroom! You could even wear it around your waist as you travel across the classroom. A few tucked away pencils, kleenex and stickers would never be more than a pocket away!
Whether you’re headed back to school or in need of some mid-year classroom clean-up, you can never have too many ideas for keeping your classroom organized. You may also be inspired by this student birthday chart for your classroom!
