There’s nothing like a playroom to bring on the arts and crafts! Unfortunately, not all of us are lucky enough to have an entire room to dedicate for playtime but the good news is, you don’t need one. A small area in the home ideally located in the family room or just off the kitchen is really all the space your kids need and you require to keep an eye on them! In fact, I recently determined that it was time to make our formal dining room a little less formal and much more functional. I then took my existing breakfast nook and converted it into a playroom - best move ever!
So when shopping for playroom products on the web, our first stop at Little Apple Design is always The Land of Nod…And not just for furniture but for wonderful inspiration! Sure ample toy storage and a kids table are key for any play area but designating the space with your child’s art or creating inexpensive art of your own is just what you need to add a bit of playroom fun! Here’s how you can do it with a few LON faves….
Paper pom-poms are all the rage in some mommy circles so check out LON’s crafty ”Loves Me, Loves Me Not Flower Making Kit“. Why not craft a few flower bouquets with your little girl for display? Hang them from eye-hooks and fishing line from the ceiling or fill recycled vases.
It’s holiday time but garlands can be used year round or inexpensively updated with the seasons. Kick the construction paper rings up a notch with flags or fun phrases. This holiday, try the warm mittens from the “Kids Felt Holiday Garlands“ collection.
