Here's a fun way to organize your play area
Picked up these frames and removed the glass. For the magnet, I cut metal to the size of the frame. You can pick up a sheet from Home depot for close to nothing. I created the chalk board by using chalk paint on the back part of the frame. The last one is a felt activity. Just cut out some felt to the size of the frame and hot glue around the sides.
The buckets below catch all the objects suited for each station. I change the felt out weekly to cover new topics of interest. We use the chalk board everyday!
This is a fun, cheap and easy way to organize and inspire !
When we bought the house, this was originally the dining room. The white molding separating the yellow stripes from the blue was already in place. I created the book shelf above the frames by using L brackets to suspend a strip of baseboard from the wall. Total cost was $5!
