12 Incredible Home Play Areas


It’s a dream of mine to have some kind of set apart play area in my home. Whether it’s indoor or outdoor or both! I was always jealous of the kids who had rad play rooms or outdoor play equipment. I was still their friends, but maybe I used some of them. Just a little bit. I think kids need a fun and safe space to create and play and just be them! These home play areas are pretty amazing and totally inspiring. They make me jealous. I am determined to build a room like one of these for my little guy someday. Hopefully someday soon! Check them out! You’ll see what all the jealousy is about.
