The space is perfect. There's plenty of space. Enough for my husband to keep the futon he didn't want to get rid of if he we didn't have to. And, of course, it's a huge perk sitting on the couch and staring not at boxes, computers and laundry but at a beautifully set up classroom and Ethan's hanging artwork.
(The futon, which is my husband's, is filled with binders of Important Accountant Stuff. He hasn't figured out what to do with them yet, but it's his futon and the room is so awesome I hardly care at this point.)
I made this entire back wall a hanging art gallery. I found these StikkiClips at an educational store and am in l-o-v-e. They are absolutely the most amazing wall-hanging product we've tried (and we've tried a lot). Perfect for Ethan's always-changing art gallery that we'll swap out as he fills it up!
They're like paper clips! For your wall! So cool, right?
And there you have it, our new tot school space! Since I managed to throw together all of our tot trays minus the sensory bin, today was our first day back and it was awesome and like we never paused at all. Ethan is adjusting to a new room and having a hard time remembering tot school moved down the hall, but he's loving it.
