Thanks guys- the kids are 14 months and three years. They do play with me quite a bit when I am crafting- well, my three year old does. My son is more into just putting things into his mouth right now.
I meant that I am looking for ideas of how to store all the STUFF (their toys and mine) and arrange the space so that it is (somewhat) organized and contained, and doesn't look like a bomb just went off.
People have been so, so generous with gifts and donations of toys and such that it's a shame to pack it all away. I am also trying to condense my play area so that the kids have more of the basement as their zone.
