A Cute and Clever Way to Organize Your Child's Books

book caddy for kidsMy daughter loves books and even though she's got hundreds to choose from, she invariably picks around 10 or so at a time that have to be read every day. That lasts a few weeks and then we move on to another 10.

That's why I love this do-it-yourself book caddy. I can keep my daughter's current favorites in the caddy, which will help keep her bookshelf and bedroom floor (which is usually strewn with books) a lot neater.

Or you can do what the folks at ohdeedoh suggest, and store your toddler's library books in it to keep them separate from his other books.

To make it, you'll need these materials:

  • wooden lazy susan
  • 4 ft of 1/4" PVC pipe
  • 10 1/4" PVC end caps
  • 10 1/4" PVC 90-degree elbows
  • acrylic paint in various colors
  • water-based polyurethane
  • silver spray paint for plastic
  • PVC cement (optional)
  • 10 screws
