I wanted to show you today how we are set up for E’s activities.
As I mentioned earlier on, we have activities set up for him in ever corner of our home. Upstairs, downstairs, in virtually every room, there is a basket or something related to him.
You’ve seen his room before, there is a set of shelf in there for calm activities to do on the floor. His permanence box with interchangeable lid permanently lives there, along with a treasure basket of some sort (although I feel the end of treasure basket to be soon). I usually add one or 2 other activity that rotate monthly.

I put all of his activities in the cubbies under, and E can just work on the table while standing up. Easy to clean, easy to see, just the right height. Perfect really!
I’ve been going back a forth for a while now on having a room for all activities to go in. But I finally came to the conclusion that I rather have learning as a part of our home rather then it being confined to a room, and since the only room available is downstairs, and far away from the hearth of our home, it is less then ideal, and therefore unused. So I rather have my kids’s activity in the living room, even though the setting is not perfect.
As for the room downstairs, I’ve been working on it for many weeks now. I want this room to be one where creativity is the prime interest. I’ll sow it to you, once it finally feels finished.
