Ideas for Organizing Your Homeschool Room

Homeschool storage ideas for toys, craft supplies and more.

It’s a new year and for me, I like to get back into organizing. Every year I find a system that works but by the end of the year we have gathered more stuff and then I really need to make some changes.

This year for our homeschool room I am downsizing and I actually had no clue about what I was going to do (not normal for me). So I asked some friends for ideas and they did not fail me. I am going to show you all some amazing storage solutions for organizing your homeschool/play rooms if you are in need of inspiration as I was.

Homeschool room organizing ideas for craft supplies, toys, books and more


I am in love with this Rain Gutter Storage Idea that Dabbling Momma shared. We are getting a smaller learning area so most of our books will be packed away, this idea allows for book rotation for us.

I couldn’t pick just one idea from P is for Preschooler. She has some great ideas for Organizing Craft Supplies in Small Spaces.

We don’t have Lego’s (I don’t allow them in my house they hurt my foot too many times) in our house but I love this Lego Table that Family Food and Travel created. You can spin this idea a couple of ways like we have lots of small world play habitats now.

Sunny Day Family has 5 fabulous ideas for storage if you’re in a small space. The one I fell in love with was your stuffed animal storage system. You have to check it out because it will save you lots of space if you have lots of stuffed animals.

Shoe organizers are very useful if you think outside the box. I like how The Chaos and the Clutter used one for her craft supplies. Another thing I like is how she actually made use of the door to her homeschool room.

Oh, how I love Still Playing School Paper Organization setup. I want this setup and will make it happen too because the one I have used is not working out. She has an easy setup that even your kids or husband will be able to put things in their correct space.

One of my favorite storage ideas for craft supplies is using Mason Jars. This year we have more of them because we have more craft supplies. I just need to find a shelving idea for them.

I love Reading Corners and I love how simple Every Star is Different reading corner is which allows the mind to focus on the book. I really looked at this idea because I am going to combine two ideas from this exact list to make this reading corner.

Okay, I love the idea of Plastic Baskets for easy storage suggested by The Educators Spin on It. I am going to carry out this idea for toy rotation this year. The smaller basket will give them fewer toys to choose from and create less clutter in our learning room.

  4. That rain gutter storage idea is GENIUS! Thank you for sharing these organization tips. I’m in the process of making a homeschool area in our house but we are lacking space. These will work perfect! Stopping by from Mommy Moments.

    I love your list of storage ideas, it is wonderful! I hate stepping on LEGO’s too, but the amount of time my kids will play with them for makes it all worth it! We us mason jars for storing so many different things in our house, they are so cheap and convent! I hope you had a wonderful New Years!

      Thank you, I’m glad you like this list. Nope, I just can’t do it with Lego’s anymore. My oldest two children ruined it for my younger two, we have Mega Bloks instead. We had a nice New Years, hope you did as well. Thanks for stopping by hope to see you again.

  6. Oh, yeah!
    After all these years, maybe it’s time . . .

    These are such great ideas. They would also work for homework spaces and playroom.

    I too downsized our school area this year from a full time room to being in our living room. It was crazy how much stuff we had collected. Because we have such a small space, finding creative ways to organize our supplies is always on my mind. I have a ton of left over mason jars from making Christmas gifts and like the idea of using them. Everyone can see through to know what they are grabbing. I just picked up a ladder shelving unit at goodwill that would be perfect for storing them. Thanks for the idea! 🙂

      Ugh the amount of stuff we had was sheer crazy now that I look at it. I am having fun finding creative ways to store the stuff we did keep. Glad that this was some inspiration for you.

  9. I just moved our school room into a smaller room in our house over the Christmas break. I’m loving these organization ideas and I’m pinning this so I don’t forget them.

    Love those bookcases with the titles facing outwards! We just got one that we haven’t set up yet and I can’t wait. (Yes, I always get this excited about anything book-related! lol!) Thanks for sharing at the Thoughtful Spot!

  11. Such great ideas! Most of our homeschool stuff is just piled up in a corner. 😕 #ThisisHowWeRole

  12. You have some amazing tips, and we are working on organizing our whole house lol. You are going to be featured this Tuesday on the Laugh Learn Linkup as our most click link!
    Congratulations and see you next week!

    I am a big fan of the hanging shoe organizers. I use them in almost every room of my house! I also love those totes – they’re so handy for many things. In lieu of mason jars, we recycle the plastic containers from my teen daughter’s favorite indulgence – Gelato. Since they’re plastic I don’t worry about them breaking. Definitely going to check out some of the other ideas you’ve listed. So many great ones!

  14. Some great organisational tips! Thanks for sharing on #ToddlerFunFriday
