As my kids have gotten older we have downsized their toys tremendously. We went from a playroom to a closet. And now they really only play with the toys in this space (to be fair they do have a few baskets of larger toys in their room including Ella’s dolls and dollhouse).
This space is technically our dining nook but over time it has converted to somewhat of a playroom. Since it opens up to our living room I wanted it to not be an eyesore and blend with the style of the rest of our house.
This rolling cart from World Market holds our art supplies like paint, brushes, glue, washi tape, glitter, scissors, stamps, and paper.
Yes, we do have a large chalk wall in our kitchen, however, Huds and Ella, tend to get upset when mama erases their artwork (oops!). So we picked up this $15 chalkboard from Ikea which they love.
This metal bucket contains Ella’s crafting supplies like beads, ribbon, stickers, etc.
A fun way to store our markers:
This bucket contains our Legos. And the basket next to it the Lego base plates as well as a stack of coloring books.
The larger drink buckets on the bottom shelf hold some of our Lego sets, Puzzles (stored in Ziplocs), Magna-Tiles, and Play-Doh.
