Hi, I'm Ann Myrick and today I'm going to show you how to organize kids' play space. And depending on the ages of your child, it really depends on, you know, if they're still actually playing, or if they more have hobbies. This is a room of a fourteen-year-old girl who really is out of the Barbie playing stage, but she is very much in to the arts, in to playing the guitar, in to dancing, and so what we want to do is make her room and her play space work for her. So, one thing that she loves to do is listen to music, and she loves to dance. So, this is a small room, but so we could have an area to create, I would probably push this bed over a little bit, where she has the bed and the table more in this area, and this gives her more space to maybe have a little dancing area. She can have her radio on or her music on. She has, I've put, we've put a mirror over here. And then she also plays her guitar, so what we could do is set up like a little music area where she has her music, her dance and guitar all together. Also, another thing we want to do is create areas for space. She's also a very artistic child and loves to paint, so we want to create an area where she has all of her art supplies all together. So, over in this desk area, what I'm going to do is line up these darling green baskets, and then she can have her art pads, her paints, her markers, all of that over in this area. What you want to do when you're working with children is you, in their play spaces, you want to make it work for them, and you also want to have different areas that they can go to, where whether they're painting, or they're playing with their lego's, or they're playing the guitar, it works for them. This is Ann Myrick, and that is how to organize a play space.
