I also want to create a special play area in the basement for my two granddaughters that live with us. I want it to be a place that says, "This is your home too."
Here is the first item that I added to the playroom, "Barbie's Dreamhouse." I forgot that it was in the attic, and now that I have been packing I rediscovered it. I went on the internet and found tons of links about how to construct your own Barbie Dream House furniture. I thought that might be a fun project for my granddaughters and I to do together. I think we passed the furniture on to a friend of ours when she was young so she could play with it.
