welcome

Welcome to The Workspace for Children where you will find simple, creative ways for connecting with your children and making this whole mamahood thing a whole lot easier.  You will never find perfect parenting over here, because I don’t believe it exists.  I do believe in PLAY as a way of life and I offer tips for helping us all feel a little bit more playful. At The Workspace for Children you will find unique tips for art with kids, play as a way of life, and strategies that will help you become a more confident parent.

Hi, I’m Lizzie Assa, the mom behind The Workspace for Children.  Prior to becoming a mom, I received my Masters in Education from Bank Street College of Education and taught nursery school in NYC.  Fast forward a few years and I am a mom of three creative kids, ages six, nine and eleven.  I am a blogger and content creator, living in Maplewood, NJ, combining my passion for play, art and parenting.  It is my joy to provide knowledge that helps parents, teachers and caregivers find the joy in making space to be playful.  At The Workspace for Children you will find creative inspiration for living a play based life with kids.
