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.

    Where did you find your beau­ti­ful abc cards and did you make your own sand­pa­per let­ters?
    Love the space:)
