Everyone is back into the swing of school, including our sweet babe! He is at a very fun stage soaking up everything and his vocabulary has exploded over the last few months. He loves playing outside (with hoses, sticks, watering cans, and anything else that isn’t a toy, of course!) and I love seeing how he learns. He has become a little obsessed with what he calls “cards” and “gaaaame” which are flash cards and a Montessori wooden pin & ring game. I wanted to create an inspirational little space (other than his room) where he could enjoy those things.
We do not have a playroom, but we have a little corner in the living room that is usually empty, except when a Christmas tree occupies it. Guess we have to find a new place for the Christmas tree this year!
Thanks to his flash cards, Malachi knows there’s a “space shuttle” on the wall! These cute prints from Peach Stream Market were the perfect monochrome inspiration for this space. They lead up to a custom moon & stars mobile made by my shop, Sew Chic Studio.
PS, those blocks on the shelf have chalk paint so they can easily be changed depending on what he’s learning. These are so fun!
I think he loves having a space of his own because he has asked to play his cards and games more, and sometimes asks to have his snack at his own table.
For the record he started the love of flash cards! We’ll ask him “Where is the beach?” And he happily points to the card and says “Peas?” asking to do it again. (Peas = Please.)
