Windham Back to School Blog Hop & Carolyn Gavins Fabric Collection "Handpicked"
"Your Home Learning Environment will significantly influence your student's achievement"
Here's 1 easy way to make studying an enjoyable idea - create a Study Station using Carolyn Gavin's fabric collection Handpicked by Windham Fabrics.
I've created -
1) Inspiration Angels Interactive Art™ - The pattern for "Learn" is available for download below Inspiration Angels Interactive Art™ is art that you add to. Kids can write their fave book titles or thoughts they have about learning on the "books" below the boy in the art. It's more of the ME + YOU = Look What We Can Do. This can also be made into a quilt. (Which if you do #shareitwithshannon because I'd love to see it.)
2) Pear Buckets - Mod Podge® fabric cut out pears onto buckets
3) Apple Crate - Fabric covered crate (video instructions for my gift wrap version is here which is basically the same for fabric - just use Mod Podge® instead of spray adhesive & no need to pre-paint it)
4) Reversible Tablecloth - I've added a 3" border to the fabrics
I've included the downloadable pattern for the Inspiration Angels Interactive Art™ so that you can make your own. Print on an oversized printer since the pattern is 24" x 48". Canvas was bought at Micheals or make it into a quilt
I hope you get inspired to create a Study Station for a child you know to help them as they learn. If you need more Back to School ideas take a look at the other Blog Hop ladies.

You make great points about creating an inviting learning environment. It doesn't require a lot of money, it simply requires dedication/attention to a child's needs which any parent or guardian can have. Your crafts make it extra-fun!

What a creative idea for a learning center. I might share this with some of my teacher friends since I don't have kids at home anymore.

It's so true that an organized, suitable study area is so important during the school age years! Keeping it clean and ready to use with cute buckets of essential tools (and popcorn!) is very inviting for kids! Yours are great ideas!

Thanks for sharing your great projects.

Great ideas especially the buckets. I could see putting each child's name on one bucket.

Thanks for all your ideas. I agree that a good study area is advantageous. This also applies when our study area is a sewing space!

A special study spot is an awesome idea. I especially love the fabric cut outs on the pails! Thanks!

My son is grown so we don't need a study station in our house (although it is a clever idea!) but truly I would like to have those little buckets in my sewing/crafting room. So, so cute!

Love your study station idea-especially with plenty of snacks available-they will come! Thank you, Susan

It is always important to have a good study area, even if it is just at the kitchen table. No distractions makes better learning. And a cute, accessible area makes it even better. Great fabrics too.

Some really great ideas! All looks so pulled together and lovely x
