I mentioned in one of my recent posts that now that we are going to be moving in the next 10 months everything in our little home seems to be just getting to the stage that I've tried all sorts of ways of re arranging things just so and gotten them just right. The day care room is no exception. I've recently shifted things around and also come across this great kitchen dresser that works much better then the desk that id used as a temporary solution to needing some where to put children's bags. It takes up less floor space yet stores much more, perfect.
I always try to have just a few toys out as its less at cleanup time and play seems to be more productive. Its nice to have some where in the room that I can store things, I think it probably makes out play things look a bit less sparse to the parents:) There is always plenty to do out but I know it doesn't look like much so this is a nice solution.
Another thing that avoids clean up and frustration on my part is having the books in a basket rather than the shelf. I rather them on the shelf but they kept getting dumped on the floor buy the 1 year olds.
In the one of the draws I found these plans and an original recipt. It was hand made a few years before I was born from recycled materials. I have to say this opportunity to learn a little bit of its history made me pretty happy!
Its nice to have to cupboards to put things up high. I often put a silk on the craft cupboard handle and it always gets noticed and inspires play
I cant wait for fresh peppermint tea!
Angus planted the other week. He stays late on Tuesdays so this was a nice thing for him to do in the late afternoon after the others went home. His nasturtium seeds have sprouted as have two of the bulbs. Its great that it is in front of the table now, we look at it and chat about its progress as we eat or craft
