Lily, and her toy setup in the making

Hello Everyone!

In going to show you how my daughter’s toys are set up. We are soon doing some interior remodeling in our home,and when that happens, I will do another post.

I really love the montessori method for children, and I try to incorporate some of the ideas into our home. It is not perfect, but it is what works, and what my daughter likes. Oh, and heads up! This post is mainly going to be pictures 🙂

In Lily’s Bedroom:

The main shelve we have set up in her room. The top is focusing on music, and the bottom is focusing on motor skills and building blocks.

We have this small tote of toys out for her because she loves to pick her own things out, dump the tote out, put things back in the tote etc. I know some people would argue that all those toys overwhelm her, but she just completely loves this set up in her room!

That is all of the pictures that I have of her room right now, because she decided she was going to make a big mess in her room while I was taking pictures of the living room. Which reminds me, onto the living room toy set up where we have a shelve, a tote, a box, and a couple extra “big” toys..

Now, I understand that some readers may think “Doesn’t she have a daughter? Why is there that “boy” toy” Well my answer is that, there are no specific “boy” or “girl” toys. Children should be able to pick and chose to play with what ever toys they want, without being pushed into sexism, or influenced by sexist ideas.

I am not exactly 100% pleased with how my daughters toys are set up, and there is a lot more organizational things that I want to purchase, but this is how we have it set up right now!

I hope you enjoyed,

Have a great day!
