I debated for a while on whether or not to do this. We've had kids come to our house in the past who have opened craft bins of feathers, beads, wood pieces, etc. and had them all over the room. That's the reason I locked everything up. But we don't have little kids here that often, and why should Bug not have everything out in the open? It is his stuff. So I made the schoolroom include crafts, and the toy closet now has just toys (and a few homeschooling books).
I just hope I'm not sorry when we do have kids over. Like next week for his birthday party (please don't let it rain!). I'm just going to tell kids the schoolroom is off limits, but the toy room is all theirs.
One of these days I'll remember to take "before" pictures.
Since I decided to stop using worksheets for school, I went through my file of them and I'm getting rid of a ton. I have friends who homeschool, so I'll pass them along.
At least I had fun laminating them.
I'm so glad I made room for his Legos in the living room. He sits here a lot and plays.
