  • The Parenting Junkie.

  • Hi, I'm Avital.

  • I'm a mindful parenting coach.

  • I'm the mother of four.

  • And I am so excited to be doing the work I do,

  • helping parents from across the globe

  • reclaim presence, peace, and play for their families.

  • And today I'm going to be showing you an updated tour

  • of our little play space for our four children

  • and how I've changed it around recently

  • to accommodate all of their various needs

  • and different stages and ages.

  • So my children currently are seven, five,

  • almost three, and six months old.

  • And my older two do a lot of Lego,

  • a lot of building with tiny pieces

  • that are obviously dangerous for my baby,

  • who is currently crawling and getting into

  • absolutely everything and opening the boxes

  • and pulling on the strings and finding the things

  • that he's not supposed to find.

  • So what he needs is a Yes space.

  • He needs a play space where I can put him down

  • and know that he has everything he needs to play safely

  • and that he can't get into the dangerous things.

  • If you wanna know more about a Yes space,

  • I have a video all about the importance

  • and the guidelines for a Yes space.

  • But here I just wanna take you on a tour of ours

  • and show you the types of toys that are available

  • to my baby.

  • So what I actually did was I took our IKEA TROFAST units,

  • we have three of them, and I used our play kitchen,

  • our IKEA play kitchen, and as you can see I blocked off

  • half of the playroom.

  • Well, really it's more like a third or even a quarter,

  • a small area of the play room in the back there.

  • And so my baby currently cannot get through.

  • Soon he'll probably be able to move those drawers

  • out of the way and climb through those holes.

  • He's already shown me that he's a little bit starting

  • to do that, and so I'll have to get creative

  • on how to block those further,

  • maybe even nailing in boards so that he actually

  • really cannot get through.

  • But you could use gates, you can use boards,

  • you can use furniture like a couch.

  • But anything that you need in order to block off an area,

  • and then that area is the Lego area.

  • That is the area where my kids can play with small toys.

  • But anything facing this side of the room

  • is going to be baby-friendly,

  • such as our magnet tiles,

  • things like wooden blocks that are great for babies

  • that he can chew on that are safe for him, large enough,

  • things like our play kitchen and play kitchen items,

  • and these squeaky things that are also good for chewing,

  • some empty space, just white drawers.

  • And we also have my Lego bag is there,

  • but he obviously cannot use that.

  • And we also have music, which we play for our baby

  • quite often here in the playroom,

  • just different CDs and kids music and stories

  • and that kind of thing, which we play over here

  • on our very old-fashioned CD player.

  • So I also put some books here for him,

  • even though our books stay upstairs.

  • But I sometimes sit and read for him.

  • I love having a little touch of green,

  • some nature inside our playroom.

  • I think it really brightens up the space.

  • But this is how I've set it up so that he can sit in here,

  • and guys, you know, often people ask me,

  • when does independent play start?

  • Well, it starts from age zero.

  • I mean, this baby, and all of my babies,

  • have been playing independently from age zero.

  • It starts with putting a baby on the floor

  • and just letting them be, letting them explore their bodies,

  • letting them explore their surroundings,

  • making sure that you have surroundings

  • that they can explore, and making sure that they get to be

  • on the floor.

  • And my baby plays for pretty long stretches of time.

  • If he's not hungry or tired, that's what he's doing.

  • He's playing.

  • And as much as he would absolutely love to get

  • into the older kids' toys,

  • having it set up this way protects their play as well.

  • One thing that I have tried in the past

  • is putting the older children inside a playpen.

  • Like I used the summer infant playpen,

  • and you could even put your Lego in there.

  • But their creations have expanded

  • and they need so much space and their friends come over

  • and play with it right now,

  • that we really wanted to make a little Lego room,

  • directly and dedicated for that.

  • And so it can easily be that all four of the children

  • will be playing in here and they'll all be safe.

  • The kids in the Lego room have to kind of climb in.

  • They've gotta wrangle themselves in.

  • But they feel satisfied that once they're there,

  • their creations and the worlds that they build

  • and everything are not going to be disrupted

  • by their baby brother.

  • (light music)

  • It's also really fun to rotate things out in this play space

  • for the baby to keep it interesting for the baby,

  • not by using things that flash lights and make sounds

  • and entertain the baby, but rather just by adjusting

  • the space to find things that the baby can be more

  • challenged by, such as suddenly putting this mat in

  • or this bean bag in with my baby

  • who's just kind of learning to stand up and crawl.

  • This is a full-on movement zone for him.

  • This is like a little Gymboree for him.

  • He learns to stretch his muscles

  • and to climb on different things in a safe way.

  • So the types of things that I would have in here

  • are the types of toys that are gentle,

  • that are big enough for baby to chew on,

  • that are simple and straightforward.

  • I also really love having a floor mirror,

  • and then rotating in and out some climbing options.

  • You could just use pillows from your couch.

  • If you have some kind of low chair or little wagon

  • that's weighted down that your baby could climb on,

  • that could be a good option.

  • But anything that allows a baby to start to stretch

  • and move their muscles in a new way.

  • And finally we've also hung up

  • and rotated in our baby swing.

  • This is just a simple bucket swing.

  • And we kind of cushioned him in the front

  • so he doesn't fall forward,

  • because he's still a little small for it.

  • But he loves being in this swing.

  • And sometimes if he's, you know, a little fussy,

  • not really wanting to crawl around on the floor,

  • wanting to be held, but I am busy, or I, you know,

  • whatever, can't hold him at that moment,

  • I'm with another child, he could be very, very happy

  • just swinging around in this swing for a very long time.

  • And because we've hooked it up with the 360-swivel piece,

  • and that is from Fun & Function,

  • I will link to it in the description box below,

  • it means that he can spin around,

  • not just going forward and back,

  • which is actually a really healthy motion.

  • Of course, you don't want your baby to get too dizzy

  • or to go too fast, which does sometimes happen.

  • But just having that ability to move around,

  • he really, really enjoys this new addition

  • to our play space.

  • And I highly recommend it if you do have a hook

  • and you have a little one at home,

  • swings don't have to be only for those older children.

  • You can have a swing that is suitable for a smaller baby.

  • It's a great way for them to just chill out

  • and have some fun.

  • the various play zones in your home,
