So that's the fun part; the practical part is the way I have toys arranged in there. With 4 kids, if everyone had a complete set of privately owned toys, we would probably be completely buried in toys! As it is, most of the toys are communally shared between all of them. This helps cut down on clutter and fights, since it eliminates a lot of the "it's mine" nonsense (of course, we still get a lot of "I had it first!"s, but I have yet to figure out a way to prevent that one).
|In other thrifty decorating ideas: my mom made those tiger curtains for the kids from a throw blanket she found at a thrift shop. Cool, huh? Love how they kind of glow with the sunlight coming through them!|
