Toddler Art Studio

I love to do art projects with M (and Lil S too soon).  I also thought it would be a great idea to incorporate art projects with our weekly playdate.  While I was perusing the internet for ideas for toddler art projects, I came across what has now become one of my absolute favorite blogs-The Artful Parent.  Her blog has inspired me to really take it to the next level and give them a space to get creative and messy (apparently we share a love for apple green laundry rooms, although her green is much better).  The permanent space will be down in the basement (new play area) but it will take a while to finish.  In the meantime, we set up shop in a corner of our laundry room because I just couldn’t wait to get started.  Here is the new temporary space. I will be sure to share some of the projects the kids do in their new Art Studio soon.


The old use of the laundry room space.


The new Art Studio!


Most of the items were picked up at Ikea and the hubby installed with no problems!


The toddler’s point of view, we tried to make as many things as accessible as possible.


Ikea hack! This is a curtain rod with rings, used to hang art work and drying items!
