Okay, here is the reorganization, rearranging I have been talking about. Myself and the kids LOVE it. We play with something new almost every day. Play-doh seems to be a daily though.
First, brand new rugs, I have added a refrigerator, microwave and a snack cupboard. This makes things a lot more convenient. We have snack and lunch in that room. We actually have a “set up” and “clean up” routine.
The Purple wall is some of our learning materials. The kids own Pre school boxes (bottom shelf), letters, numbers, colors, shapes puzzles, learning books and more. Also, on the Purple wall is the “little home” area, with a kitchen (food/pots), washer/dryer, baby crib, high chair, babies, baby clothes/bottles,, vacuum/broom, little people playhouse, mailbox, and more.
The Orange wall has our shelves for toys, puppets, tools, little people, infant/toddler learning toys, TV & VCR, doll house, barbies (clothes and furniture), our snack cupboard. This wall also has our number worm, color numbers, children’s names, and color splats
The yellow wall has board games, box games, most of our fine/gross motor skill building tools (scissors, glue, play-doh, cookie cutters for play-doh (letters & numbers too), foam stickers, variety of writing supplies (markers, bingo markers, crayons, color pencils), sewing boards and beads, crafts. Also, our Fish “Haymish”, climbing/crawling mats, the children’s chairs and own “desks”, for structured learning. The wall also has numbers/shapes/colors.
The Green/Orange corner has our comfy couch, for reading (yes we do. It also has a child size couch right in front of it (pink cover), we have the farm, the ball popper, elephant wind balls, learning farm for certain blocks, our CD player for our many children’s music choices etc.
This is a quick look at some of the projects I have been doing in the Daycare room. I hope you like it as much as the kids and I do.
