My friend Kirsten is a work-from-home mom too. She found that every time she tried to sit down to her computer and squeeze a little bit of work in, her four-year-old would instantly be climbing all over her even if she had just started her working on her own project. She just wanted to be right next to mom. So Kirsten came up with the solution to create a mini work station for her daughter right next to her desk so that they could work side by side. It turned out pretty cute so I wanted to share.
A few tips to create a similar work station for your mini human:
- Organize the markers/colored pencils/crayons by color so they’re easy to put away in the right spot and they’re easy for your kid to find what they want. To keep them more contained, Kirsten just cut up shipping tubes and covered them with washi tape.
- Place a bin for trash right under their feet so it’s easy for them to sweep the scraps right into it.
- Hang a cork or magnet board up right near their desk for them to instantly showcase their creations.
