Household Tip #7: Easy Homeschool Desk

We love to do our schooling at the kitchen table.
It works out great for all of us except the little guy.

I noticed last year he would fidget and/or get easily fatigued with any length of writing.

My Father's World has a wonderful message board and I discovered there that it is a common problem especially when your child isn't sitting at a desk that fits him.

We have a little table we sometimes bring into the family room. But it takes a lot of valuable space and can quickly become a catch-all.

So this year I decided to use one of our wooden, folding trays as an impromptu table and it's worked out great.

It's the right height for him and he can remain at the kitchen table with the "big" kids.

When we're done with school for the day, we just fold it up and tuck it away so no clutter builds up on it.

It definitely works for us!

Connor and TJ have little desks too...
