Creating an Enticing Space for Children’s Crafting

Daydreams of Quilts was very pleased to be invited to be a contributor to the Redfin blog article How to Create the Ultimate Crafting Space for Kids. We have three very creative children who love to craft. During the pandemic they have been even more crafty than usual.

Come see our space over on my YouTube channel in my video on Creating a Kids Craft and Play Room with Inexpensive and Found Items.

Our advice for the article was to create a colorful display that entices the kids to use the supplies. Sometimes when all the supplies are tucked away it is easier to forget about them.

Use found items around your house and affordable storage options from places like IKEA. For example, on the wall in our kids’ creative space we have upcycled and chalk painted old pieces of wooden peg boards that my husband has framed out with trim. We hang colorful fabric buckets from IKEA and plastic baskets full of bean bags, toys, finger puppets and craft supplies on hooks where our kids can see them and get them on their own. The key is to have an inviting and colorful display that entices the kids to use the supplies.

Head over to the Redfin Blog to read all the advice from the crafting experts in the article.

Our kids have enjoyed making paper houses, pipe cleaner animals, model tanks (in the case of our teenage son) and perler bead crafts to name a few. Our daughters each want to open an Etsy shop like their mom but we want them to hold off just a few more years.
