Our Learning Room

We finally did it earlier this year. You know the room that you have that's crammed too full of stuff and you just keep adding more junk to it? Well, we got tired of not being able to use that room and did something about it! We turned it into a craft/school room. Ah. We purchased some kids tables and chairs and cleared out everything that didn't need to be there. Since I only have a preschooler and a toddler, our needs are pretty basic until they get to be school age. For now, we enjoy sitting doing crafts - coloring, do-a-dot markers, gluing projects, etc. I've started working on the alphabet with N and will be putting all of his alphabet collages on the wall. So here is the final result of the room.

Since I am linking up to the Homeschool Link-up Party at Joys of Home Educating, I am adding a few more pictures of our learning areas around our house.

The Living Room, where lots of reading happens and jumping off the couches of course.

The Garden (taken last summer!)

The Dirt Box


  1. Looks great! Our school room used to be one of those "catch all" rooms, too. It's so nice to get it clean and see it put to use.

  2. Hi Noellen - so happy you found my link up party for Show off Your HOmeschool Room - I will admit, as much as your inside area ROCKS, I LOVE the garden the most. So much to learn outside. We had a large garden in Syracuse when we lived there, but now that we are in Southern New York, we have more wildlife in our yard the animals eat everything and I miss it.

    I am a new follower now and hope to "see" you around the blog! Peace to your weekend!


  3. The dirt box is the best! My son would enjoy that, too. I'm visiting from the homeschool room linky party.

  4. That's great!! How wonderful to start them learning from the beginning. And I, too, love the dirt box. Perfect for little guys!

  5. Glad you were able to take back that room and make it useful. It looks great.
