DIY Homework Station

By General Craft Contributor Michelle

Create a personalized homework, or online school station for your child with this easy project!  During remote schooling of the Covid lockdown of 2020, I resorted to placing a giant sheet of cardboard between my two, online-schooling children.  It greatly reduced bickering, shooting dirty looks at each other, and general sibling orneriness–I called it “The Peacemaker.”  This is a much prettier solution.
