DIY Charging Station for iPads and Tablets
Families have a lot of devices and of course, everything needs to be charged at the time. Instead of having charging cables floating around the house, create a charging station. A charging station helps keep all devices charged it also makes it easy for kids to find the device they need.
How to Create A Hanging Charging Station
This charging station will accommodate multiple devices such as iPads, Amazon Fire Tables, school laptops, and headphones. Using a hanging charging station frees up much-needed counter space and is easily accessible for children.
Use A File Organizer
This 8-tier wall file organizer is from Amazon. (Here are some smaller organizer options: 5-tier wall file organizer and 3-tier wall file organizer) It easily fits iPads with most of these iPad Cases which are great for kids becuase kids are tough on tablets.
Secure it to the Wall
Use wall anchors because kids are not gentle. When they are repeatedly taking devices in and out it will put a great deal of strain on the screws and drywall.
Use this power strip and longer lightning cables so all of the chargers could be in one spot and cords are long enough to reach all the devices.
Why Create A Charging Station
Creating a family charging station makes it easy for everyone to store and charge their devices in one spot. There are many benefits to creating a device charging station in your home.

Studies show that keeping technology in your bedroom disrupts sleep and makes it harder for children to fall asleep.
