Hello Junk…whoops I mean craft supplies, artwork, stuffed animals and that missing puzzle piece that is in the newly named “crayon tupperware” container, too bad we threw the other 499 pieces out….

I am working on couple of finished basements that are adding kids play areas. While thinking about my graphics and illustrations for the walls, it got me to thinking about the challenges of organizing the play area. Here are a few fun alternatives you can add to the cardboard and shoeboxes and those large plastic bins!
SEATING AREA with BINS
Ah yes, a seating arrangement and and organizer all in one. The bins are able to be labeled with a pix or words of what they contain. Great colors. The white rug – Very brave!
I happen to love this because kids cannot part with their stuffies and this “communal living” wooden crate for the Lions and Tigers and Bears keeps them off the floor and in places where they are apart really not very happy. Toy Story was real you know.
Clipboards! Easy to hang, I would spray paint them with white or each one a different color, such a great way to display the kids art work. Buy the A-A-R-T letters at Michael’s Craft store. Easy Peasy.
A recycled piece of furniture – handy for storage fo the 45,000 pictures your kids drew for you, this morning.
This Radio Flyer Wagon is adorable and what a great way to store and move the books.Photo: Somedaycrafts.blogspot.com
BENCH and TOYBOX
Another recycled piece I did. Great storage and fun to sit on!
So there you have a few ideas, hope they inspire a little Noggin imagination. Have Fun! xx
