Do your students have desks or tables in your classroom? These duct tape desk drawers have been an absolute lifesaver to keep their desks organized. You only need a couple items to make these or to ask each student to make one and bring it in at the beginning of the school year. No need for pencil boxes this way!
A fun roll of duct tape of your choice
A small box flat – the best ones I’ve found to fit our desk are actually wine flats that I get from Trader Joe’s. If you call them and ask them to set them aside for you they are more than happy to.
It’s a simple project. You’ll just cut several strips of duct tape to completely cover the box. It ends up making the box much more sturdy and stands up to a whole school year in the desks. Sometimes we’re even able to get 2 years out of them.
The drawers keep everything nice and corralled in the top section of their desk. It makes my organized loving heart happy!
Hope this helps keep your students a bit more organized this year!
