I stink at this. How do you guys do it? We live in a small house. Ideally when we move to a larger house, we'll have room for a small dresser just for art/craft supplies.
Right now, here's what we have. I have my sewing stuff, which often gets raided for art supplies (elastic, etc.). In our living room, there is a built-in bookshelf and one small shelf (about 1 sq. ft.) for construction & drawing paper, craft books, etc. The shelf above has play-doh in a big rubbermaid, box of stickers, rubber stamps, crayons. On the floor there is just a cardboard box with all the other random stuff (mostly ziplocks with pom-poms, feathers, pipe cleaners), but also loose things like glue sticks, pencil sharpeners, etc. All the messy things are stored out-of-toddler-reach (paints, glue bottles, markers, glitter).
It often happens that when DS is looking for one item, the whole box or shelf gets strewn all over the floor in the search. So frustrating! How do you do it?
