Kids Desk Organizer

Are you homeschooling this year? Or do your kiddos need a more organized space to do their homework? Pencils, pens, color crayons, and other little pieces can clutter up any size workspace. Create custom storage solutions out of shipping tubes and give your kids a clean area to work!

What you’ll need:

  • Box lid or tray
  • PT shipping tubes
  • Hot glue gun
  • Ribbon, paint, or glitter

What you’ll do:

Decorate the shipping tubes with paper, glitter, ribbon, paint, or whatever you like. Glue the bottom of the tubes to the top of your lid or tray. Use the organizer to store markers, paint brushes, colored pencils, or any other craft supplies.

DIY windsock

Do It Yourself Windsock

With quarantine and social distancing, a lot of us have had to get creative to keep the kids occupied and happy. If you’re running out of ideas, our tubes are the perfect size for making windsocks! Putting it together and decorating is indoor fun, playing with it is outdoor fun. The best of both worlds!

What you’ll need:

  • PT shipping tubes
  • Colorful streamer
  • Paint
  • String

What you’ll do:

Paint or decorate the shipping tube however you like. Once dry, poke two holes in the bottom of the tube. Thread a string through both holes and knot together so you have a large loop to use as a hanger. Then tape one end of a 12-18 inch streamer inside the tube. Repeat until you have several streamers coming out of the tube. If it’s being hung indoors, you can add a few drops of your favorite KidSafe blend directly to the top of the windsock creating a colorful passive diffuser for little one’s bedroom.

Almost everyone has that one junk drawer (usually in the kitchen) that has random odds and ends that don’t have a spot in the rest of your house. It’s messy and inconvenient, but where else are you going to but your two random batteries and three bobby pins? Try using our new shipping tubes to create order and organization in your junk drawer.

What you’ll need:

  • PT shipping tubes
  • Odds and ends

What you’ll do:

Use the tubes to store and organize your hard to find odds and ends like bobby pins, thumbtacks, nails, tiny legos, Barbie shoes, essential oil roll-ons, spare keys, paper clips, and whatever else you can’t seem to find when you need it! Label, color, or decorate the tubes to signify their contents.
