Children are, by nature, inquisitive, curious and imaginative little creatures who are constantly looking for an outlet where they can express themselves. Give your child a space to call their own where no rules apply and creativity is openly encouraged. 

Your creative space does not have to cost a fortune. There are so many available budget-friendly resources that you can use to create the perfect space for your kids. 


 The Space

The space you choose to transform for your child can be any size. Whether you have an entire room devoted to creativity or a corner of your child’s bedroom, you can create an area that will allow them opportunities for exploring their creativity. 

IKEA offers great options when it comes to both tables and stools or chairs that can work as a creative station on a budget. The SUNDVIK table is the perfect size for little humans and paired with the FLISAT children’s stool you’ll have an area ready to go for under $60. 

Amazon also offers affordable children’s chair & table solutions that will have your space ready for creating without having to overspend on items that your child will eventually outgrow. Delta Children has unique and beautiful options for your child’s new creative space. 

The Supplies

Storing supplies in an effective way to utilize the space you’ve set aside is important. If you are working with a small area, you’ll want to use the wall space so that supplies can be easily reached and used when your child is ready to create. 

IKEA offers a solution for this as well. The BEKVAM spice rack can be easily converted into a holder for paints, papers, and other overflow supplies. The SUNNERSTA and FINTORP wall organizers help keep everything from markers and crayons to scissors and glue in its place. They also add an organized aesthetic to the space and the neutral tones help the colors of the supplies pop out. 

Other ways to organize your child’s new space are with cork boards, pegboards, and floating shelves. All of these provide a fun and functional design aesthetic and give your little one the room they need to create.
