Does your child have a designated homework space at your house? Or are they always moving around doing homework at the kitchen counter, dining room table, the living room floor, on top of their beds, and who knows where!?

My son is doing his homework all over the house even though we bought him a desk for his birthday!

It seems that the days of sitting at a small desk in the corner of their room, slaving away on adverbs, and fractions are long gone.

Kids these days are on the move while doing homework so why not create a Portable Homework Station to follow them wherever they may land.

This supply caddy is the perfect organizational tool for kids on the go, small spaces, waiting rooms, daycare, road trips, restaurants, and more!

And big bonus — your kids will love their new organizational tool so much, they may actually be excited to do their homework!
