Pegboard Organization: Our Creativity Center

For those of you have have taken my Playful Learning Spaces eCourse, you know that I am a huge fan of utilizing wall space in order to create areas where children can have access to inspiring materials. Pegboard offers a versatile and aesthetically pleasing way to take advantage of valuable space. What I love most about it is that it can easily be rearranged and restocked as your children’s interests and skills evolve over time. Today I thought it would be fun to share the latest rendition of our creativity center.

    I would like to know if your course is for kids of all ages or specifically for the younger ones. Mine are nearly 7 and 10 and I am keen to rearrange their room and their play space to reflect an meet their needs. I really want it to inspire them to flow into a variety of activity whether it be, drawing, writing, reading, art or craft.

      Hi Shalini – The Playful Learning Spaces eCourse is for all ages. My girls are currently 8 and 9 so there are plenty of examples of spaces, which suit that age range. The course explores the fundamentals of creating spaces for children and then speaks to accommodations that can be made for different ages and stages of development.

        Hi Shalini – Thank you so much for letting me know! The code SIMPLEMOM (all one word) should work now.
