Children's Room

Welcome to The Copper Nest!

We help stay-at-home parents and work-from-home parents declutter, organize and design play spaces in their homes that are beautiful, functional and manageable. 

  • Do you feel like your home is being dominated by toy clutter?

  • Are you tired of living in a constant state of clean-up time? 

  • Do you wish your child would play independently for longer periods of time?

  • Do you have a vision for a beautiful, functional and tidy playroom (or play area) in your home?

  • Do you find it hard to maintain your child's play area and

 incorporate clean-up rhythms into your day? 

You're in the right place!

Less IS More

As far as PLAYROOMS go, we've got 2 guiding principles.


1. We honor play as a child's most important work (just like Montessori did).


2. We believe that the environment is the third teacher (just like the Reggio Emilia approach does). 

Combining these two principles with decades of experience creating play spaces, has taught us that less is more when it comes to toys and children's spaces.


We know that things like colors, furnishings, storage, textiles, etc. all make a difference in a play space. We are here to help you learn how these things can completely change the way your child plays.

With a little time and effort, you WILL make changes that last. 

We've got tools galore to help you create {and maintain} beautiful, functional, play spaces in your homes so that your children can play independently and purposefully. And so you can get things done.

If you'd prefer to take a done-for-you approach, we've got you covered too.

Hi! I'm Amanda!


Homeschooling mother of three and early childhood expert. I have spent the better part of my life interacting with children and their toys.


As someone with anxiety who is triggered by clutter, I knew I had to figure out a way to give my children the materials they need to play independently at home, while also respecting my own boundaries and space.


In addition, as a preschool teacher/owner I have observed that children play more purposefully when there are fewer toys, but ones that are open-ended and high quality.


The combination of this knowledge and life experience is what led me to create The Copper Nest.


I promise you, a little bit of work on your toy clutter goes A LONG WAY. You've got this mama!
