Here is a picture of my sweet little three year old friend, Lydia, who came over and played in my playroom recently. She was quite taken with my costume basket, and she quickly set to work fashioning a fairy outfit out of odds and ends. She then wanted me to participate in a "play" with her, which I willingly did. She enthusiastically directed me as to what to wear (a head scarf) how to dance (which involved a lot of twirling her around until I was thoroughly dizzy) and what to sing (which was more down my alley) and how to bow. This was exactly what I had in mind when I created this playroom. I wanted to make a place that sparked kids' imaginations and made them feel creative, expansive, and free. So far, I've been delighted with the results. From what I hear, my playroom is talked about long after the kids have gone home, and they look forward to coming back for another go in "Darlene's Playroom". That makes me happy.
