With the Our Play Space series running for more than a year now I thought it would be fun to highlight some of the great spaces featured so far. Over the next few weeks, I will share fun ideas for outdoor play, creative play and small play spaces, and today kick off with five indoor play spaces.
I love the bright green on the walls and Megan’s purposeful organisation of the playroom into zones for different types of play (a mama after my own heart). Read more about the evolution of the Me and Wee playroom here.
The Children’s Teahouse at Takoma Park Cooperative Nursery School is the perfect place for wonderfully imaginative stories to unfold. I love the integration of natural materials into dramatic play both outside and in. Read more here.
I love the wall of maps and the homemade play kitchen in the Happy Gas playroom (plus the little wicker dolls bed is swoon-worthy). There is so much to enjoy in this play space that you should be sure to check out the complete tour here (how cute are the book shelves!)
Features such as the string and pegs for the children’s artwork and hooks for dress ups give children real ownership of the space in Bernadine’s sunny playroom. See more here.
