I intend to leave the sofa portion of the room as is, this will give parents a place to sit and interact with one another while across the way our kiddos play. However, I will have to sell the dining room table set that adorns the other half of the room. This is a table set that belonged to my parents while I was growing up, and although I am not fond of it, the idea of selling it for probably a mere $100 doesn't sit well. But it's outdated, it's not my style, and it's in the way of my future play room. I guess I will get over it!
My imagination is running wild with the possibilities of this room. I want to make it an exciting place for creativity to run rampant. I want my babies to love spending time in there and for it to be special to them. All of the items I want to put in there are quite overwhelming, both in space and in cost. I want to make it a well organized space and I want it to have lots of color and activities to engage each of the senses. Here are just a few of the great things I want to put in my play room... ahem... my Baby Girl's play room:
Items like this will help to contain my sanity. I need organization tools and want to teach my babies to pick up after themselves. What better way is there than organization bins, which can be color coded for particular toys!
Of course a table and a set of chairs is essential to any playroom. A place to do art projects of numerous kinds and eat a snack. I love the primary colors and think that they develop such a sense of excitement for the room.
I also want some type of activity jungle gym or climber of sorts. An indoor activity for a rainy day or mid winter. I wouldn't be opposed to a Little Tikes Swing 'N Slide either. Something to get the blood pumping.
I also want a bulletin board up on the wall for learning. We'll have daily learning time too! We'll learn the alphabet, our colors, shapes, numbers. I can't wait to get this room underway!
