Time to Play

or maybe that should read "Time to CLEAN".   Kind of embarrassing, but this is our playroom and this IS what it usually looks like (does anyone else have this problem?).  The room is suppose to be set-up as a living room or maybe dining room in our rental, but it's so much more productive as "toy center", don't you think?  Oh, and yes this is what guests see as soon as they open our front door!  Welcome to our mess, uh, I mean house!

So anyway, let's forget about the mess and move on... kinda...

In our new house we have a room that will (again) be designated for toys and called "the playroom".  But, I want a plan this time... you know some REAL organization (well, as much organization as a five, three and almost two-year old can handle).  Here's some room ideas to get my mind turning on what to do with all these toys and how to best inspire creativity in my three little ones...

Chalkboard wall is a must!

I love the simpleness (and the colors) in the picture below... we kinda have the clips and string thing going on in our current, messy playroom too, but I love how in this room the clips hold a wide range of items.


This wall map is great... the playroom (really any room) is a great place to include educational resources!

And, bookshelves.... our playroom is gonna need some storage...

And maybe even a little desk....  how cute is this?  Martha Stewart is always so creative.... that bench slides under the desk for storage and simply pulls out to use as a comfy seat!  Perfect!

Oh, and our playroom wouldn't be complete without a table and chair set...

Maybe I should start by cleaning the playroom today.... maybe...
