Hello and welcome to the twins’ playroom. The place where play happens. The place where mess happens. Alot of mess happens.
In this room I have tried to incorporate both children’s interests. They both love painting and glueing (I blame Mister Maker). I love displaying all their artwork and try to encourage them to be as creative as possible (although obviously I keep the paint and glue underlock and key, I’m no fool).
Most of the furniture here is upcycled. The playroom is constantly in a state of flux as the twins develop different interests and obsessions. What I love about this room is that they can play together, with jigsaws, the cooker and dressing-up box. However, it also reflects their own (very gender-specific – what can I say!) passions. Therefore we have some crazy-haired bikini clad Barbies and boxes of cars. Sometimes Barbie gets to drive a car and I have tried to encourage a game called ‘Barbie the mechanic’. I enjoyed myself anyway.
The wooden cooker is probably the most played with toy, along with the trolley of groceries (on the far right). The melamine cups and saucers (from a carboot) are great for play picnics too.
I wish I had some unified storage system in this room (hello Ikea!) but everything has a place and if it doesn’t it gets chucked into the cupboard to be dragged out again tomorrow.
Do you have a play place? Where do you store your toys? We love hearing from you guys so please leave a comment. x
