This post is essential for me because I will be finding myself moving and I want my children to have an area all their own without taking up too much of mine. Although the apartment has three bedrooms and a garage I do not want to clutter those rooms up (you will get to see their room decorating posts soon enough). I contemplated whether or not I wanted to turn the garage into a play area. Even though I get an extra space I contemplated not parking the van in the garage, and the thought was just terrible.
Chelsea over at Making Home Base seems to have it going on. She shows you how her children’s’ play area went from being a total disaster to an organized little play spot. Plus, she didn’t have to give up a garage to do so.
I have an area similar that I can try this out on but I would need the space to be neutral for CAH and NRH. Even though they share some of the same interests I don’t think my daughter would love a boy based play area and I’m sure CAH wouldn’t enjoy pink too much. Who knows though, maybe they could enjoy it.
How do you manage to keep a child’s’ play area clean without having a play room/ clustering up their bedroom/ or taking up too much of your own space?
