An old hand-me-down typewriter desk with tons of little drawers. Perfect for room time, where children can have independence to do and create in their own personal space without anyone else around.
An old wooden cigar box, perfect to fit markers and secret treasures. A fish bowl for too many pencils to ever all need sharpening, scissors, and homemade crayons. Huge opening to fit little hands.
Stapled fabric to a canvas.
Painted an old frame that perfectly fits the canvas’ size. A rough paint job with acrylic paint did the job.
Hot glued the inner frame sides and fit the canvas inside. Added a layer of glue on the outside once the canvas was in place.
A vase made by my father, years ago. Adds something of a treasure.
Caroline decided her “room time” started as soon as her desk was set up. And one hour later, we saw her come downstairs, very fulfilled to have a big girl place to just be.
