The Anatomy of A Playroom ~ Education Baskets
By now you will know that I have a little problem called “SCO” or
Storage Container Obsession.
If it is a basket, tin, bucket, container I want it, I need it,
I HAVE TO HAVE IT!!!
In our playroom I had a few neglected baskets that were being used to hold educational items. This was an area I really wanted to fix during our latest Playroom Project.
There it is second from the bottom! Well it also counts as Open labeled storage! These baskets contain workbooks, games, flashcards, reference books etc. I need them to be
- away from little hands
- sturdy baskets to hold bulky items
- baskets that aren’t too high so I can easily see what is in them
- four identical baskets (just to look pretty!)
Here is what they looked like before….
They are right up the back on the top shelf of the Expedit unit! Can you see them amongst the mess! But look …the kids are playing in the playroom!
The baskets are breaking apart, too small and of all different sizes and colours! I don’t even know what is in them anymore!
So out everything came! At the top of the picture you can see I found these great sturdy, perfect size, plastic baskets at “The Reject Shop” for $4 each!!!
I sorted everything into four categories
- Flashcards and Activity Cards
And here they are!!!! They are working perfectly AND I found things I had forgotten I had!!! Soon I will share with you exactly what is in each of these baskets!
But first I need to go and make some labels for them!!!
Do you have “SCO”? Maybe we could start our own support group?
