Help with Open Floor plan and front door opening to open living room

Hello, I am looking for help regarding furniture layout and decor.

I have a front door opening to a large living room/dining room/kitchen and also aligned with door to a back yard. I am trying to figure out how to layout furniture so It feels that there is actual entrance/hallway (to leave your shoes at), living room and dining room. I also need to come up with a kids corner (for 1 and 3 years old). I tried placing them next to the entrance to back year, but they don't like playing there and it feels that all the toys are in a way.

I am attaching the layout and some pictures of staged room (the furniture is not ours in there, it was staged for sale).

Really appreciate the help!
