DIY Personalized Homework Station

This DIY Personalized Homework Station is a useful project that teens or tweens can customize to enhance their work space for back-to-school! There is plenty of room for memos and important notes. My daughter loves this personalized workstation using Fujifilm INSTAX photos to display fun memories! The chalkboard surface is perfect for jotting down assignments or upcoming due dates. There is plenty of room for memo pads and sticky notes too! I love how this homework station fosters organization skills and inspires lots of focused concentration! DIY Personalized Homework Station

To make a personalized homework station of your own, you will need:

  • Chalkboard Paper
  • Tri Fold Foam Display Board (cut into half, so each board will make two homework stations)
  • Small Photos — We LOVE the look of the Fujifilm INSTAX photos for this project!!
  • Binder Clips
  • Twine or String
  • Clothespins
  • Glue
  • Memo Pads or Sticky Notes
  • Colored Masking Tape
  • Stickers (optional)

DIY Personalized Homework Station

Once the tri-fold foam display board is cut into half, cover the center wall with chalkboard paper and secure with coloring masking tape to hold into place. We used some patterned wrapping paper to create a pocket for tucking in notes or other papers. Use glue to attach a variety of memo pads or sticky note pads to the sides of the homework station. At the top of the center wall, attach binder clips and tie string or twine to create a photo wire. Use clothespins to clip your favorite Fujifilm Instax photos to the string! We love the Fujifilm INSTAX Mini 70 for capturing sweet snapshots that can create a personalized display almost instantly. Plus, it is super cute and very easy to use! The Fujifilm INSTAX Mini 70 is the step-up model to the Mini 8 and offers a more advanced feature set, including: an updated camera design, improved picture quality (especially in dark scenes), a new selfie mode (with selfie mirror), and a tripod socket. It is perfect for creating instant photos anywhere and any time!

DIY Personalized Homework Station

When the homework station is not in use, it folds flat for easy storage. With just a few more supplies (pencils, pens, scissors), my daughter has everything she needs to complete her homework within reach. Plus, she can proudly display her favorite Fujifilm INSTAX photos quickly and easily to make this workspace her very own customized creation!

  29. I think limiting the distractions is key to helping concentration, whether it’s for kids and their schoolwork or me reading a book. The TV is probably the biggest distraction, so that has to be turned off, and it helps to make sure the lighting is good, too–can’t concentrate if you can’t see what you’re doing.
