This year I am room mom for my daughter’s kindergarten class and one of the projects I had was to make a class basket for the school’s annual auction. My room mom partner actually had the great idea of creating an art cart and then I just went to town and bought up everything I could to make the cutest art cart you ever did see!

I started with the cart itself and found it at TJMAXX on sale for $50.00. I like that is ombre and has deep enough drawers to gold the supplies! I also got the dividers and inserts at TJMAXX but they also have cute office organizers at target and michaels!

Filling the art supplies is the easy part. I basically got one of everything! Even a got glue gun and magnifier glass. These are random things but I thought my daughter would love to have them if it were her art cart so I added all of the fun extras ..

I also got a local art studio to donate a gift card for art classes! ($175.00 value) So now with the giftcard the basket is valued at $375.00 and the school is SO HAPPY! We have so much interest in the cart and I’m sure it will go fast!
