Creating an activity hub isn't necessary if you want to have fun with your hobbies, but it can certainly help. An activity hub can help you by not only giving you a place to work, but also a place to store your hobby supplies, and projects. Having proper storage space for your hobbies can often mean the difference between a successful project and failure. Surprisingly, creating an activity hub is really easy. All you need to do is follow a few simple guidelines, and you will quickly have an area that is dedicated to help get your creative juices flowing. Best of all, this activity hub will also help you to keep your hobbies organized.
- Customize your space. Begin creating an activity hub by first customizing your workspace. This means that you need to choose a desk, work table, or some other space that you are going to use to work on your hobbies, and make sure that it is suitable for your needs. Begin designing your hobby center, so that it works for you. Figure out where you want things to go, and where they will make the most sense for you. As you begin laying things out, envision having them within easy reach, that way you don't have to constantly be getting up and down.
- Organize your supplies. Peg boards, shelves, containers, bins, and whatever other tool you can think of can all help you organize your supplies. If you are interested in scrapbooking, then try to create a stack of shelves that you can lay your paper on, and have easy access to. If you are interested in models, and painting figurines, then organize your paints so that they are color coordinated, and off of the table that you will be working on. This way, as you need each paint color, you can quickly and easily locate it.
- Divide your workspace. Set your room up so that it will have two distinct areas, one that is clearly your own work area, and another area that the rest of your family can use when they come in. If most of the people in your family enjoy working on the same types of hobbies as you, or would also like to have their own "hobby area" then create similar work spaces for them. Make sure that there are clear delineations be
- Keep your workspace clean. Once you have your activity hub set up be sure to keep it clean and organized. The biggest strength that these centers have, is also their biggest weakness. With all of your materials in one location it will be exceptionally easy for your workspace to become dirty and messy. Once you have finished using something, cleanup and put everything away.
