Our family recently moved– and — much to the chagrin of our kids — the new place did not arrive with a room we could dedicate to play with. Our last home had a basement, and the kids loved having a space they could escape.
However, after all of the boxes were unpacked, we understood that the cupboard under the stairs was comparatively empty and are the perfect little room to house their favourite things. If you don’t have an extra room for your kids, preparing a play place remains possible. Explore your home’s nooks and crannies to provide your kids the room they need to play with.
This sunny window is a great area to store children’s novels and a few toys. The shelf may be used as a play surface or a cozy spot to see a book or two. Plus, the shelf on the wall provides additional storage which mothers and dads everywhere will appreciate.

This play nook is similar to the one we now have in our property. Employing a curtain at the doorway will allow you to keep an eye on the kids as they play with.

A dormer is a great space for a play nook. Kids love to be in spots that feel as though they were created for them. This adorable dormer has enough room for a play desk, a few seats and even a large dollhouse.
Do not allow a little play nook hinder your child’s creativity (or yours). Adding a mirror that’s just right for your child’s height and a tree branch to hang dress- up clothes will provide hours of imaginative play.
Converting a large stair landing into a play nook is a nice alternative. Built-in shelving, chairs and a table create a spot that’s made for coloring images or playing games.

Putting books and toys at the end of a corridor functions in the event that you have the funds to add a bookcase. I’m particularly fond of the colour on the ceiling in this shot.

Sometimes a vibrant rug along with a table are all you need to create a play nook your kids will spend hours enjoying.

If you’re the type of parent who enjoys to have an eye on your kids at all times, consider dedicating a couple of shelves on the living room bookcase to toys and children’s novels, so they could play within close sight.
