How to encourage play and creativity in your home ?

Having a designated play area for your children at home can make a huge difference in keeping your house tidy and your family happy. This space could be a craft corner or a spare room that is solely dedicated to your kids' enjoyment. The most important aspect of this area is the storage solutions you provide, so that everything can be put away at the end of the day, not only keeping your home organized but also teaching your children the importance of tidying up after themselves.


TIP #1
A kids’ BOOKCASE is the perfect shelving for both books as well as toys. Find a bookcase that offers accessibility for children to explore book titles and choose the one that they wish to read. Not just for books, intersperse the bookcase with storage baskets and toys that can be rotated to stimulate children with new options to explore.

TIP #2
A LOCKER is a lockable unit which are available in an array of colours, shapes and sizes. With lockable doors (to keep little fingers out), this is a great way to control when it is playtime and when it is not.

TIP #3
The PLAYTABLE is a kids' table used for craft and/or drawing. This piece of furniture will ensure that the crayons and Texta 'overdraw' will occur on a dedicated surface which can be wiped off at the end of the day.


TIP #1
Large BASKETS look amazing in the corner off a room and mask what's inside. They are great for throwing in bulky items such as soft toys or trucks and if you find a basket at the right height your children will able to rummage through easily.

TIP #2
Small STORAGE BASKETS or BOXES are perfect for categorising kids' stuff. With the ability for kids to either see in or have clearly labelled, this will make life so much easier especially when it comes time to find what you're looking for and then packing away.

TIP #3
PINBOARDS are the perfect way to display artwork. These light weight felt like boards come in a range of colours, designs and sizes and can be selected to suit your decor. Perfect even for organising the home by pinning schedules for the whole family.
