Home design projects are one of my favorite things to do, but this one is especially close to my heart. A few months ago I asked the Land of Nod if they could help me create a sensory friendly playroom. Our playroom was a blank slate. And I was over the moon excited when they said yes!

Our oldest is on the autism spectrum. He is inquisitive, silly, and caring. A lot of sensory friendly playrooms are focused toward preschool children, but I envisioned a play space for he and his sister that encouraged exercise, quiet play, and reading through the elementary years. 

The new space met all of their needs and more. I painted the walls a soft green-blue and added a plank wall. Took down the mini blinds (yay!) and added cheerful white curtains. Added a quiet time area with the Land of Nod canopy and art area with weekly calendar and white board for writing our daily visual schedule. Both of our kids love the new space! 

Head over to honest to nod to read the full story!
