With the crazy winter months ahead I’ve been wanting to organize a kids art station for my little ones. They love to craft and I thought it would be great to pull out all of the art supplies and create a special place for just them to create.

Normally I just pull out a bag of crayons and some paper, so when they saw this art station set up they were SO excited it was all set up! It kept them busy for awhile which is always a plus! I’ve seen some crazy cute art stations on Pinterest, but we’re going simple here. That’s my motto these days. ;)

Basically I took an extra board I had laying around and gave it a coat of paint. Then I filled up some mason jars with some fun art supplies for the kids to create with.

Here’s what I filled in my jars:

  • Crayons
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Washi tape (my kids love that stuff)
  • Colored pencils
  • Poms

I also put out some washable paints and a glue stick. They were so excited to get crafting!

    Love that idea!! I have a ton of mason jars to do a project like this! I always store my craft suplplies in mason jars. Never thought to add them to a board.

    They are one of my favorite things to work with. So many things you can do with them!
