A peek inside a reader’s play space…
We live in a small apartment (about 600 sq ft) in the heart of Manhattan with 3 little kids. Although our living space its tight we
have been able to carve out a piece of it for the kids. I am so glad we did. We use every inch of our apartment, all the time, so messiness is bound to happen. But, more often then not, the kids toys seem to stay on the blue rug.
One of the things I love about our tiny living space is we have learned to be careful in our consumption of kid stuff. I am constantly cleaning out what isn’t played with (I am an avid Craigslist user for buying and selling kids stuff). All of their toys are stored in the bottom of that cabinet, with a few exceptions. We have a lot of dress ups, do a lot of arts and crafts and read lots of books. Our small space has encouraged our creativity in many ways and we love it.
Thank you, Kiasa, for sharing your play space with us, you are an inspiration when it comes to managing small people in small spaces 🙂 You can read more about Kiasa and her family adventures in New York City on her blog, Living Life and Loving It.
