Craft Spaces for Kids

Montessori Playroom for Three

Here’s what a Montessori teacher’s playroom looks like. Sign me up!

Jessica from the blog The Education Of Ours got a master’s degree in Montessori while pregnant with her first baby. Her thesis covered how to incorporate Montessori principles in the home, a subject she obviously mastered.

A recycled kitchen countertop serves as a workbench for her three children, with extra space for a guest. She incorporated a snuggle space for reading books and plenty of floor space for play.

You can read more about this amazing playroom on Apartment Therapy.

Craft space for kids with carpenter bench

Instead of putting a large sofa and a TV in the living room of this family apartment, Isabelle of Dos Family included things like a carpenter bench for the kids, a climbing wall, and gymnastic rings. All of these things that should be standard equipment in a family home.

    I love the carpenter’s bench! It makes me want to be a kid again. This is something that we could actually do in our rented apartment here in Tokyo.
