Our home didn't come with a linen closet. A guy MUST have designed it. But it did come with this cool tiny room off our upstairs loft, which has an enchanting slanted ceiling and it just begged me to make it into a play room. So I obeyed.
I placed clear plastic drawers holding various groups of toys:
- cars and trucks
- play food and dishes
- train tracks (the bridges are too big to fit in the drawer so they're stored in the corner of the room)
- toddler toys
- stuffed animals
- card games
- Lincoln Logs
- Mr. Potato Head
- one drawer for each of the younger kids' toys
A kid-size picnic table adds to the fun. And a world map and ABC's on the walls makes it educational.
Inside the toy room door is a wire shelving rack that holds our VHS videos. Our DVD's are stored in the entertainment center nearby.
