Locker Accessories for Girls

Locker Accessories for Girls

At my Elementary school, we get lockers in 3rd grade. Since Kindergarten, I have been walking through stores thinking, wow, I’d sure like to be in 3rd grade because there are so many cool decorations for lockers here. Well, it’s been a couple years that I have been decorating my locker, now that I am in 5th grade.

Here are the top locker accessories for girls:

1. Pen/Pencil Cups. These days, people like to buy a lot of pencils and pens to use in class, including mechanical pencils (my favorite!). At my school, within the first couple days most of the pencils are gone, so it’s handy to have a couple stashed in your locker. You can also use the pencil cups for lots of other stuff, from pictures to notepads!

2. Magnetic Chandelier. You’ve probably heard of them or see them at one time or another because they’re all over the place. They’re cool because they stick to the top of your locker and don’t fall off (most of the time) and actually light up if you put some batteries in. Also, say you have a Glow-in-the-dark pencil hidden in your locker (see above) and you want to show your friends how it lights up. Bam! You have your own personal lamp stored conveniently at the top of your locker.

3. Locker Shelf. For some people, the shelf at the top of your locker just isn’t enough. Imagine you had boots to put in your locker but you didn’t want to get your rug to get dirty (see below). So, just put it on the shelf and you’re golden!

4. Locker Rug.  The bottom of my locker usually looks dirty or rusty, and I like to put a locker rug there.  You can easily make one or find one for cheap.

5. Magnets.  Magnets are a fun way to decorate, and you an also use them to hang up things like papers or photos.  I also use it to hang up my music lesson card so I can keep track of it.

6. Air freshener.  Air fresheners can make your locker smell yummy.

7. Storage bin.  I usually put a storage bin somewhere in my locker, usually on the top shelf.  This is great for all the little stuff that collects in my locker.

8. Mini calendar.  To stay organized and keep track of things.

 

Mom’s tips:

Shopping for locker supplies is a treat, because these items can add up fast.  Start by shopping at places like the dollar store (for things like cute magnets and small bins).  We have found other cheap items at 5 Below and Walmart.  You can also shop online or after school starts when school items are on clearance.  One year we found a bunch of clearance locker supplies at Barnes & Noble after school had started.  While some items serve a purpose – like bins for organizing, other items make great gifts if there is a special occasion.  The kids can also use their own money to buy supplies.

Label, label, label.  Items can disappear, and we learned this the hard way.  We label everything that we can (aside from stuff like magnets).

    These are some pretty cool things for lockers. I would have loved this stuff when I got a locker in Middle school.

    I love the chandelier idea and my daughter would love to have this in her locker. I like all the ideas and making her locker look cool is so much fun to do together.

    Those are so cute! I love the chandelier. Nothing is more fun than decorating your locker. I loved it when I was a kid.

    These are great ideas! One of my favorite parts of high school was tricking out my locker. Of course, back then it was mostly stickers. But it was still fun.

    My daughter-in-law needs this for our grand daughter! I think all kids need this, to teach them organization. Great ideas!

    These all are great ideas, that sound like stuff that I had in my lockers when going to school. Crazy thing about students and lockers here, they don’t use them! I mean they are available for the kids to use, but the kids would rather tote around their backpack full of books! (it’s crazy!)

    Ohhhh these look so fun! I’m sure my nieces would love these! I’ll have to see if they have lockers yet. I’m sure they are getting close to the age of lockers if they don’t already have them. This would make a fun Christmas gift!

    Oh these are just SUCH cute ideas! I remember getting so excited about decorating my locker each year in middle school. It was by far the highlight of the first week of school haha!

    My daughter would be in that zone soon but for now, I am glad that she is enjoying what she loves, music and sports. I can’t wait to see her turn into a young lady.

    These are great ideas! I’m lucky that my kids don’t have lockers yet, but the day will come soon! I love that chandelier

    My daughter doesn’t have a locker just yet, but I am sure next year, when she does, she will want to decorate the heck out of it!

    I love the chandelier. So cute! Too bad I can’t decorate my son’s locker with it. LOL. My nieces would love it for sure.

    How cute is this chandelier! Both of my daughters have some locker accessories, but theirs are more utilitarian like simple shelves and magnets. These items are perfect for girls, I know when I show them to my kids they will want them immediately!
