My Play Room: Kaitlynn

Jenn has all the playroom essentials here for her daughter with room for art making, playing cooking, a child-height mirror and more. She shares: When designing Kaitlynn's playroom, I wanted it to be stimulating, educational, but above all, FUN! Since we only have her bed, books, and stuffed animals in her bedroom, I wanted the playroom to be a place to just let loose.

I tried to pick toys that are made to last and mostly wooden, although there are of course a few exceptions. Some of the highlights in the room are the play kitchen (complete with working "faucet") made by my Dad, myself and my husband, my old 1970's Fisher Price record player and doll house, and the art center with easel.

I tried to take a bit of a Montessori approach with the organization of the room in that I keep all of the smaller toys in bins on low shelves. I never got around to putting pictures on the outside so she knows which toys belong in each bin but after 2 years, she has them all memorized now. The train table was her reward after filling up a potty chart with over 120 stickers! While it takes up a good portion of the room, it's easy to slide aside and still have the whole middle of the floor available.

Lastly, almost all of the art (including the bird mobile) were handmade by family, except for the Minimalist Muppets poster that was a birthday gift to myself. It truly is a fun place to spend time and I hope you like it!

Thanks Jenn, we do! Readers, find Jenn at Jak's Place.
