Ready for a tour of the boys’ room? I decided to quit waiting for perfection, and just take the pictures already…too bad I’m not a better photographer. Anyways…one interesting fact, almost everything was brought up on the back of a motorbike. Logistically interesting.
Bunk bed: made by a local carpenter
Curtains and sheets: ikea
Carpet: foam puzzle rug that I DIYed
Dresser: from our friends…DIY
Toy box: from our same friends…I want to paint it someday. There’s G’s knight shield and sword, some diggers, big train pieces, an army of plastic soldiers, a wooden bowling set, and so on all hiding in there.
Be strong + courageous hanging: DIY
Table and chairs: ikea, DIYed with chalkboard contact paper
Calendar: a merry mishap free printable
Skeleton poster: wrapping paper from Paper Source, I think
Skeleton on magnet board:
Clock printable: hankandhunt free printable
Alligator number line: free printable from mr. Printables (AWESOME site with lots of modern, school stuff)
Montessori style continents puzzle thing: DIY with felt continents…but I’d love the real thing!
House shaped whiteboard and bulletin board: DIY knock off of Ferm living
Shapes sorters: Target (or Plan Toys has nice ones)
Toolbox set: Melissa and Doug
Marble Run: found an AWESOME discount on a Plan toys marble run, in a store here
Animals: Schleich is my fave, we mostly have farm animals, because that was on a big sale
Trains: assortment of Thomas, Toys R Us, and surprisingly a compatible set from the dollar discount store. All generous gifts. If we had to buy it ourselves, I’d probably do Ikea or Brio.
Cooking: Ikea pots and pans and food with Plan Toy bowls, plates and spoons, I think
Blocks: leftover scraps from the building project
Books: mostly stuff for school. We did a Sonlight hodgepodge.
Puzzles: Crocodile Creek, Dwell, Hape, Beleduc, and Melissa and Doug (I’m a fan of modern, wooden puzzles…which I found hard to find unless its M & D which are a bit overdone)
Musical instruments: I did a board on pinterest with the break down, other toy favorites, and links.
Clear containers and blackboard contact paper: from here
We hang everything because we don’t have any closets, and like cutting down on cuddly spots for the mice and cockroaches.
Brown round thing…its a peapod: really glad we got the bigger one. Its been loads of fun for the boys as a playbed, and is a nice travel bed.
Costumes: I’ll do another post on that someday
Cute boy doing I-love-you-hands: mine 🙂
I guess that’s it from the 3 meter by 3 meter room full of day long activity.
