How can I best organize construction paper? I always seem to end up with such a mess! I would like to have easy access to the different colors and, inevitably, I always need the color that is at the bottom of the stack. That’s where the mess begins. I’ve tried placing the construction paper sideways so that the colors go side-to-side instead of vertically, but the depth of the shelves in my classroom is not enough to support the construction paper length. Any ideas?
Thanks for your question about organizing construction paper. It sounds like your shelves are making it hard to store paper in an organized way. Below are three different ways I have organized my construction paper.
- Stackable paper trays separate the colors, allow for easy access, and do not take up a lot of space. They come in all sizes.
- Hanging charts can also hang on the backs of doors, in closets, on walls, etc., and can easily hold, organize, and display construction paper of all sizes.
- A large crate can hold construction paper vertically so it is easy to organize and grab.
