If there are small children in your life,
think of ways to make your life "child-friendly"
as well as "childproof." Tuck a basket of
children's books and toys in a corner, and toss
a few throw pillows beside it to make a
welcoming place to play.
We have done this in our family room. I have a basket in the corner with stuff for Gabby to play with. She still tends to bring other things downstairs. I always make her pick them up before she goes to bed. That way the family room stays neat and orderly!
Target has these cute ladybug baskets on line for $14.99! I think they are just adorable!
