Kids’ Cool Spaces

Day 2 of Artchoo reruns here- I love all of these cool spaces for kids; just think about the imaginations of the people who design such amazing spaces for kids. You have to tap deep into your inner child to come up with these ideas.

There actually ARE cool spaces for kids in the world, and I’ve seen a bunch of them lately. Through the internet, of course. But wouldn’t it be fun to take a world tour of creative kid spaces? These are some of my favorites:

    Wowzers! These are so cool! Did somebody really knit that first one?! I am so into this kind of thing. Makes me want to research and visit interesting play spaces near us!

    Nice to see the HoJo bringing it in terms of design.

    Our local mall also has a breakfast foods climbing-thing. It’s kind a neat to rumble over some waffles.
