From the Pinboards: Well Organized Spaces for Children

It’s that time of year again, when we get to start fresh and tackle some of those organizational projects that have been lingering on our lists for a while. Last week we talked about getting a handle on our toy collections, and I wanted to follow up with a bit of visual inspiration to get in there and make a well-organized, accessible place for your kids to play and create!

I especially love this studio, featured on Martha Stewart, which is filled to the brim with beautifully arranged art supplies. The studio is actually the at home work space of Editorial Director Darcy Miller, but she has created a way to involve her children by inviting them to create with her in the space. Isn’t that lovely? You can see more of her studio here.

Looking for more visual inspiration? Find more ideas for getting organized and creating functional spaces over on the Playful Learning Pinterest boards, we’d love to have you follow along!

Do you have any tips for creating organized spaces? If so, please share!

  1. I am definitely an anti-clutter person, so even this space, although beautiful and colorful, is a bit too overwhelming for me. I’m all about simple little nooks with just a few things, and rotating those frequently.
