Pretend Play

The one room I wish I had in my Brooklyn apartment is a playroom (I can say this because I already have a craft room). I would love to trick out a space with so much creative play, Oliver and Sommer’s brains would hurt from excess imagination.

Harry is one lucky kid with a mom that would would put this hardware store together for him for Christmas. By Kate’s Creative Space, Harry’s Hardware Gas & Auto covers all the pieces a hardware store needs. Seriously, just go to her blog to check out the details of this adorable tableau.

Diy-bookcase-dollhouseThe potential with this DIY dollhouse from the Land of Nod blog, Honest to Nod, is huge. I love everything going on here from the colorful clouds, to the train-track walkway, to the bright wallpaper choices. Just darling.

KitchenMy friend Jocelyn Worrall made this cardboard kitchen for Parents magazine a few years ago, and it’s still one of my faves. The oven dials are made from Play-doh lids. Enough said. Use cardboard boxes that you have, but if you want help finding free ones, click here.

Kitschy-digitals-kitchenThese are genius, free printables from Kitschy Digitals that would go perfectly in the cardboard kitchen.

See what I mean? Now I’m really ready for my…I mean their…playroom.
