I have three kids, 2 girls in high school, 1 son public school. They're all very good student (in the gifted program) BUT they procrastinate! Everyone of them. So this year I got smart myself (hehehe) and bought extra back to school supplies and decorated soup & tuna cans to hold all that they would ever need to do their homework so I won't have to listen to "but I don't have my ______" , "I forgot my ______ at school so I can't do it" Now there's no excuses. The tray makes it easy to put everything on the table and clearing off for dinner is a breeze! Even my 16 year old will sit at the dinning table and do her homework. The 2 'actual pen containers' in the middle with the lids... 1 has candy for them to suck on while working and the other has loose change so when they need money for this or that it's there.
My friend and I made a tray and decorated cans for her home/childcare business.
My two teen daughters are in the process of decorating their's to put their cosmetics & jewlery in.
Hope you find a use for this idea!
