Crafting Corner For The Girls

If you have children of school age then I am sure this post will definitely resonate with you . If you are a regular reader then you will know our two eldest girls Kadiann and Alessia are 8 and 14 and are both in school. They are at the age where reading books come home every night and homework comes home twice a week.

I personally don’t think children should bring home Work to do . They are at school from 8.30am until 3.30pm and then have their reading books to attend to in the evening as well as pieces of homework. I think they are at school enough and Work should finish once the bell goes.

It can be quite difficult with a very vocal baby for the older two to get quiet time for their reading and homework. I am a lover of multi tasking - I think you have to be if your a parent of more than one child!. Dinner time can normally consist of eating at the table, whilst doing a sheet of homework and also feeding Nila up at the high chair , as she is normally crying for our dinner - chunky monkey :)

We have decided to crate a quiet corner for the girls so they can gather up their home Work and their reading books and take it to the quiet corner and hopefully, touch wood, get their work done without the noise or chaos that a family of five brings.

We haven’t got the biggest of houses so we have been on the hunt online for a desk to add to the girls quiet corner that is not only affordable but a size that can fit and that is also big enough for what the girls need.

We came across a few styles we liked on the Lionshome website. Some of the desks on their site are gorgeous and quite reasonable in price . I wouldn’t mind one of them for my office if I am honest ! :)

I think Scott and I have  decided on the perfect desk for the girls .The Foxal writing desk is exactly what we are looking for .With the width measuring at 65cm,   It is small and compact and will definitely fit in the space we have allocated . It has three storage shelves built into the side panel which is going to be perfect for storing pens and all sorts of stationary, colouring books and all their  craft bits.

Onto crafts, we can double up the desk as their craft station too! So any glitter sessions the girls want to have (which mama hates!) can be done in their own little crafting corner .

I really like the idea of creating a space just for the children to go to , whether it be doing their homework or just colouring in. Have you got an allocated space for your children?

I would love to hear your ideas and thoughts on creating a special place for your kiddies to have and if it has helped with homework and reading.

  1. This is a great idea, I will definitely make sure my girls have a quiet space when the time comes!

  2. That looks like a lovely desk - I like that it's compact and has the built in shelving too.

  3. oh i love that desk, its so cute and i like that it has built in shelving too!

  4. I love the look of that desk, doing homework on there would definitely make it a more appealing task to any child x

  5. The desk looks good. Having a desk at home for homework helps. My toddlers have one as I encourage educational play.

  6. A children's corner is a super idea! I would totally agree of giving them a space to do their own thing.

  7. That is a lovely desk and I like the storage at the side

  8. I love the design of the desk - the shelves are a brilliant addition! I don't think they should bring home work either - there's so much pressure these days :/

  9. What a great idea! I love there look of that desk, lots of storage too with the shelves!
