Are you spring cleaning and wondering how to organize kids’ craft supplies in your home? Here’s how we organise things in the NurtureStore playroom, so we positively encourage creativity but also keep things neat and tidy and know where everything is.
This post is by special request from Becky at Ar-blog, who wanted to know how I organise our supplies (I think hers might me overflowing!) If you have something you’d like to see here on NurtureStore – a question to ask or an idea you’re looking for – let me know and I’ll see what I can come up with. You can always come and chat over in the NurtureStore Facebook community and send me a message.
