Continuing to work on the kids' playroom. Yesterday was their stage and dress-up area, today it's the ginormous dollhouse they got from Santa. (This is actually what sort of pushed this whole playroom re-organization into gear to begin with. As you can see, it takes up a bit of room. :)
The girls love their dollhouse and even though it is large, I actually like the size because they can both play it at the same time. Less fighting = happy Momma!
But with a dollhouse comes "stuff" to put in it. We now needed a place to store their dolls, clothes, furniture... (you get the idea).
I had a large white plastic drawer unit that wasn't really being used and decided that would probably be the best fit. However, I wanted to dress it up a bit.
Super easy solution: scrapbook paper cut to the size of the drawer front and simply taped inside.
Add some labels and we now have a pretty place to store all of their dollhouse essentials.
Feel free to download your own labels here if you'd like. Before you do I thought I'd give a few of my thoughts on creating labels for kids.
- Include a picture for easy spotting--especially for those non-readers.
- Include text with the picture. You'd be amazed how kids can start to identify words when they see them often enough.
- Skip the fancy font. Kids need clear and legible font to help them begin reading.
Doesn't this just make you want to be little again? :)
