got any other ideas for eliminating down time? How do the kids get their supplies out for the day? Do you pass them out? How do you start class? I seem to lose about 10 mn. getting my little ones settled down.I'd love to save time there!

        With lids on these buckets they 'stack' one on top of the other. Like most
        art teachers space was a premium in my room as well. We just did the best we
        could stacking them. I wouldn't recommend stacking them higher than 3. We
        also stacked them in a way that kids could just come in and get their
        buckets and get to work. (My idea of teaching is to make sure they come in
        and work immediately, no down time). The logistics of buckets is that you
        have they are grouped together according class or tables. The 'decorations'
        on the outside make them easy to find. For ceramics I kept them all year
        around. For crafts classes, when we were done with the clay portion of the
        class, the clay that was left was put in a common bucket, the rest of the
        buckets were cleaned out and then put one inside the other, and put away
        until next year. At the end of the year, you either throw out the buckets or
        save them.

        Great idea, San D, but where did you store all of those buckets? Did
        you have them around all year?
