ideas for children's area

diy ornaments. styrofoam covered in glitter. Brilz! Much less expensive than the big ornaments at the store!

Kids table - 6 foot shelf from Home Depot, shelf braces and chair from Ikea..what a great idea! Playroom...

Don't donate that old coffee table just yet! Use chalk board paint and bright colors to make the perfect kid's table that your children CAN draw on.

For library - Milk crates zip-tied together on their sides so that a bench seat fits on top and bins can slide inside them. Want to do this!

    the kids at my library LOVE the summertime and holiday craft table! One of our favs :)

These angled benches can be arranged in a straight row or use them for "L" or "U" shaped reading areas. Company went out of business, though.
