As I mentioned in yesterday’s post about our toddler bedroom, we made recently made changes around our home to support our new toddler. Today I’m showing our toddler living space. I described our infant shelf set ups in our living room in this post and this post. I discussed the changes we made as he progressed. With the changes to his room around his birthday, his areas in our living room also changed.
Here is a reminder of how it looked before:
His new set-up
I think he likes the new arrangement. He is in the period for maximum effort and loves to carry things. This allows him to carry his toys/materials to the table, work with it and then return it to the shelf. It is also clearly his area because everything belongs to him and is at his level.
We received the xylophone for his birthday and it really triggered the idea of a music area. He loves music and definitely needed a dedicated area. He spends a lot of time here. I’ll do a post about music in the future.
Do you have a CD player available to your child? If not, I would highly recommend one. This is a very loved and used area. See more pictures of this area in use in the next post.
To see how it’s all laid out
I hope this gives you some ideas for your toddler spaces. The next post will be about the materials we currently have on rotation.
Feel free to leave a comment, ask a question or share your toddler spaces.
