Setting up a Front Room Organizer
Benefits of Having a Front Room Organizer
- Supports independence of all children, especially children with vision impairments. The kids will be able to put their backpacks, coats and shoes away when they get home.
- Having their things put away in the correct spot makes it easy for them to find their things in the morning when it is time to leave for school. Everything has its own spot.
- The labels of the kids' names (both my boys and my boyfriend's daughter for when she is over) are clearly labeled in braille and print so they are accessible for everyone.
- Bench: I found this bench at a garage sale
- Shoe bins: I found them at Target. I purposely bought sturdy plastic ones, so they can be washed out and can become wet during the winter time without getting ruined.
- Wooden backboard: My boyfriend designed and created it for me with spare lumber we had and attached it to the back of the bench.
- Hooks for the backpacks and coats (I found mine at Menards)
- Chalkboard labels: I found mine online at amazon.com.
- Chalkboard pen: Hobby Lobby
- Big Braille: Wooden pieces from any hobby store attached with wood glue
- Braille label paper: I buy from http://www.americanthermoform.com/product/braille-labeling-materials-bra...
- Cane hook
