On the book shelf I was able to keep my breakables on top, cookbooks handy on the second shelf, and art/daily supplies on the third shelf. The beautiful colored box organizer my friend Julie made me held pens, pencils, glue, scissors etc.
We used our time lines almost daily. Since we didn't have room to keep a time-line on the wall, we keep events in order in three-ring binders. Each child makes one for themselves.
(The bottom shelf usually held bottled water.)
There was just enough room for a small "desk" and stool for baby to color or a child to work even if the table was already set for a meal.
We did our work around the table.
The file cabinet still held our hands on activities while books were organized by subject on the shelves. Shelves also held chapter books, picture books, games, paper, toys, legos etc.
I like over the door shoe hangers to organize small items.
This view stayed the same.
I like having a marker board but Mom wasn't so sure about another thing on the wall...so it sits on top the cubbies and can be moved when needed.
Hope you enjoyed the tour! I had fun sharing and compiling memories.
