Headphone Storage

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I just purchased a jack box with 6 headphones that students will use with a CD player in the listening center. Does anyone have a good idea of how to store the headphones so that they don't get all tangled up? I have seen the headphone storage racks but didn't purchase one due to trying not to spend a lot of money. They were about $35.00. Has anyone ever made one? I wonder if I could make one out of PVC pipe.
Thanks for any help!

I am planning to make a headphone storage rack this week. I plan to use 1 1/2" or 2" PCV pipes and 90 degree elbows. I haven't decided yet about the base/feet. I might get more pvc pipes and t's or I might use 2x4 blocks and use a door knob drill bit to make holes in the wood and put the pvc pipes in.

What about using one of the soft cover, over the door shoe holders to organize the headphones? You could number each pocket for your students so you wouldn't have to write new names each year.

What I did was hot glue clothespins to the wall and they served as a hook for each set of headphones.

I store my headphones over the edge of a bucket. The base sits inside the bucket with the headphones plugged into it. I got a bright colored cheap bucket from the automotive dept of Wal-Mart.

I put really good quality stick-on hanger hooks on the wall above my listening centre.

We only use the headphones when we all go to the computer lab so I put mine in a Ziploc bag and keep all the bags in a tub. When we go I have a student pass them out.

I found an old-fashioned wooden tool box with a large piece of dowel as the handle (it looks like a rectangular wooden crate with a large piece of dowel for the handle) at a craft show and hang the headphones over the handle since my wall space is at a premium.
