Creating Playful Spaces: Inspiration & Implementation

Creating Playful Spaces: Inspiration & Implementation

Whenever I am in need of a new storage solution or simply a dose of inspiration, I love to peruse the many places around the web that offer creative and beautiful ideas. There are so many amazing blogs, created by extraordinary women… And then there is Pinterest—where we can share in what our friends and role models fancy. What I love about taking all of this in is that the images are planted like little seeds in my mind. Then when I am out and about and spy that special piece, I know to seize the moment. Below are some examples of inspiration that I have found around the web and how we implemented these ideas in our home.

With over 10 years of EDU experience and a growing family, Mariah started Playful Learning in 2008 as a resource for parents and teachers. In 2010 Playful Learning received the Parent’s Choice Gold Medal, and in August of 2011, Shambhala Publications released her first book, Playful Learning: Develop Your Child’s Sense of Joy and Wonder. Mariah has an M.S. Ed in Elementary Education and was that girl sitting in the back of class thinking about what she would do differently if she was the teacher. Now she is happily working with a team of gifted educators to bring life-changing lessons to children, families, and schools around the world. In her free time she can be found taking long walks, enjoying a cup of tea, or swimming in the Atlantic with her husband and two daughters.
