Children's corner in the office
Children's corner in the office? I used to say that it is impossible with us, but since we are struggling with the pandemic, closed schools and kindergartens, children are more and more frequent guests in our office. They visit us at work or spend their free time with us here. It also often happens that they come to the office children of our clients or co-workers. And if so, we wanted them to have their place here! Without a doubt, with such a corner we work several times faster than when bored children wander around the office ... and we follow them.
Children's corner in the office
This place became extremely useful during the pandemic, when we had to limit the number of places we visited. The boys often spent almost whole days with us, absorbed in playing and studying, and we devoted ourselves to our daily duties in the office.
On the first floor of our office - right next to the conference room - we have arranged a children's corner, for relaxation and fun. On the one hand, we wanted it to be filled with fairy-tale characters, and on the other, that it should not dominate the office space.
Furniture in the children's corner
We moved the furniture here from our attic - a table with chairs by the French brand Janod from the Arctic collection fit perfectly into the color atmosphere, without taking up too much space. We have also separated the space optically with a jute rug.
And the leitmotif? Recently, Moomin appeared on Canal + in a new edition, which my children loved, and after watching all the episodes, we started with the old episodes - exactly the ones I watched as a child. So we invited our loved ones to our children's corner Moomin - characters you see both small and large guests of our office smile. Most importantly - in such an arrangement, every toddler feels great, and we do not get nystagmus, which often accompanies children's play corners.
A rack on wheels for toys
There is also a table with chairs in the children's corner bookcase on wheels filled with books, puzzles and toys, which helps us keep order here after play, and most importantly - children's topics can easily go aside if more space is needed in the office.
With the onset of spring aura, on warm days, we set up the boys' favorite hammock on the terrace, which always reminds them Daddy Moomin's fairy-tale hammock.
And since we already have such a fairy-tale atmosphere, it is impossible not to agree that our little guests should be served with drinks adequate to the seriousness of the whole situation. Surely you are asking yourself what do these fairy-tale characters have to do with tea? Moomin teas They are packed in wonderful, colorful cans, and each of them has the main character of the fairy tale! You can find various flavors and patterns in the store Coffeedesk - and here you will find a collection of Teministeriet teas with Moomins - I'm sure it will awaken children's memories of many adults.
As you know, I am a huge supporter of ecological solutions and reusable products, and cans of these teas can be a beautiful decoration for a child's room, desk or magic kitchen - they are therefore 100% recyclable. Not only are these metal cans very cute, they also allow you to take better care of our planet.
It's not just the packaging that is fabulous. Each tea contains a different type flower petals, berries and fruitwhich provide teas with an amazing aroma and a wonderful, sweet taste with no added sugar, which is a huge plus in the diet of our children.
There are two ways of making tea, using warm or cold water. The latter is loved by our children, and thanks to this, we can include a healthy drink containing many vitamins into their diet. Ice cubes also add charm to it, and turn it into the real ice tea:
As I mentioned earlier, tea also attracted the attention of the older group of connoisseurs. It is loved not only by me, but by our entire team and of course the guests - also adults. Here is a portion for Mom!
Following this step, we use to serve tea (especially coffee to go in the car) KEEPCUP cups made of durable glass (see). Tight cover made of non-toxic plastic and cork headband make the mug amazing bezpieczny, both for our children and on the desk next to our computers. Anyone who has already flooded a laptop will appreciate its advantages.
Even if the closed cup tips over, the tea or coffee stays in place - it is completely tight and resistant to breaking, and therefore super safe not only for our children, but also for exits - especially now, when we mainly drink coffee instead of in a cafe.
Each sip of tea guarantees us a journey to the world of Moomins! It has become part of everyday life in our lives. It also works well as a great gift for both children and adults. Not only does it taste good, but it also enchants with its wonderful, fairy-tale packaging, which after drinking tea in 100% will stay with the recipients for longer, evoking warm thoughts not only about Moomins, but also yours 🙂
I am curious if you appreciate child-friendly places and how do you like them? Are you coming for tea?
