Homeschooling Room Tour for 2014

Share Button
I seem to be changing our homeschool room around a lot these days. About every six months it seems it’s time for a change and that’s because our family is changing. The biggest change for us this year is we now have a toddler. As I’m sure most of you know, when your sweet little baby becomes a curious toddler, things definitely change. I try to embrace those changes and adapt our living and schooling space to benefit the children in the stage they are in. Today I am sharing our homeschooling room with you. I hope you enjoy your tour.

“Receive the children with reverence, educate them with love, let them go forth in freedom.” – Rudolf Steiner Homeschooling room tour, natural toys, open ended play, toddler, Waldorf, Montessori, Handmade, preschool, Dolls, www.naturalbeachliving.com

Looking into the room, you will see,
a perfect place for you and me.

The low shelves hold some of Baby Bells weekly activities. To the left you will see her floor mat and playsilks , in the middle she has a new wooden puzzle, and this week we have been working/playing with farm animals. So I added our Schleich horses and a few toddler touch and feel books. We also are blessed to have this amazing doll house from Elves & Angels. The children have spent hours playing with it already.

This is our comfy reading corner. The kids LOVE to lay here and read. I keep a basket of Toddler books on the floor for Ms. Bell to easily get to. We also have a new Pottery Barn Kids anywhere chair to sit in. If you are wondering about the posters and maps above you can get all of the information about them here.

A child size table is so important to any schooling or play room. This is the Large Caroline table from Pottery Barn Kids, however I have seen many great quality wood tables from some of my favorite stores.

It is so important to have good quality, natural, open ended toys. Let their imaginations flourish while they build and play. The toys you see here were made by me.

We love our baby dolls!!! These are some of the baby dolls in our house.Waldorf doll makers put such heart into making their dolls with quality natural materials, and they each have their own dolly personality. Perfect for those of us that love dolly play. The sweetest baby doll of them all is the one on the right, she’s mine.

These are things you’ll see around our room. First is our little teacup Yorkie Peanut, he’s always nearby. The fabulous Barn you see here was the big Christmas gift of the year, and it’s also from Elves & Angels . As you can probably tell, Elves & Angels is is one of our favorite stores. The Grimms Rainbow and hand kite are also favorites.

The bookcases seen in our room are the Carolina bookcases from Pottery Barn Kids. I love them and if I had more room, I’d probably get more bookcases. I use a lot of  baskets to help keep things organized.

I love having a kitchen in our space. The boys have always loved playing store and we incorporate it into our everyday learning and play. Unfortunately they are no longer making this farmers market, however I highly recommend getting an Elves & Angels kitchen. We have their Julianna’s kitchen and love it.

We love nature and I feel it’s very important to bring nature into your learning space. Every month or so I change around our nature table. This is part of our Winter table. You can see some of our other Nature tables here and here.

My favorite reading chair is right by the windows. It is so nice to relax there and read with the kids.

This is what you see as you are looking at the back of the room. (bookcases are below) Above the windows are our bird counting cards they are so sweet and I felt they were perfect for our room. We love Eeboo products.

I love when the sun shines in and all of the colors dance around the room.
