Getting The Most Out Your Space

When space is tight you have to be creative to get in all the activity areas that you would like to have in one space.
(This is next to a table but there was not enough room to place a shelf)

We wanted to have a magnetic board for the children to use different types of items on. So we attached an oil drip pan to the wall and place magnetic items in tubs or baskets next to the wall. As children lose interest we just change the basket to something different. Above the oil pan is a PVC pipe frame that we attached to the wall. On the frame we added fine motor skill boards. The boards can be used by standing in front of each fine motor board or the children can remove them and place them on a table.

Each board is hung with Velcro strips.  You can change out the activity boards based on the interest of the children.
Items can be used on the table and then placed back on the wall when finished.

  1. I really love your dressing frames. I've been meaning to make some for a while now and you've just reminded me. I love the bright colours. Very enticing.
