Our Family Room: Learning Areas

Baobao and I spend most of our afternoons in our living room. It has become her primary learning and play space, with a limited number of toys staying upstairs for when we are cleaning the upstairs rooms. Maybe it's the early years teacher in me, or because I like the idea of homeschooling Baobao in the future, but we have arranged our living room into different areas. They are still a work in progress, as we continue to decorate our living room, but I wanted to share them with you.
