reading corner Eva Montessori approach to providing a dedicated reading area for a toddler. As soon as we setup the book display, our 18 month old found his way, picked a book and sat down to "read" by himself.
Crate Bookshelves: Find a wooden crate at craft store, paint any color you want, cut in half with table saw, attach hanging brackets with screws and attach to wall. Immediate eye catching book storage for little ones.
Garage ball bin - love this design with hooks for helmets and small bins for smaller balls. Use bungee cords in the middle so you can take out balls at the bottom without digging! Plus lots of other garage storage ideas.
