Children’s bedrooms are their playrooms, their space, their place t' create, think and play. Whether they are playin' alone or with a siblin' th' entire space should be totally accessible fer them.
Here are some easy key elements t' turn yer child’s room into their space.
A bulletin board can be constantly tweaked fer their interests that seem t' change and “evolve” daily. It’s th' perfect place fer them t' express themselves and they learn and grow, we'll keel-haul ye! A constantly growin' room can be a better choice than a stayin' th' same “themed” room.
A kid size table large enough fer art projects and/or buildin'. Our absolute favourite is th' Ikea little sandcrabs’s table; betwixt th' cost and durability it makes fer a perfect choice.
An art line, basically a clothes line across yer wall fer hangin' little sandcrabs’s art work, after all, who better t' decorate their space, by Blackbeard's sword. It’s easy t' make yer own or The Land o' Nod has a lovely affordable ones.
A world map and a globe, they educate as well as a wonderful reminder there is a great big world out there fer them t' explore! World maps that cover an entire wall are a favourite o' ours, if ye can’t do both one would be great. Both are inexpensive and will not outgrow yer child.
A readin' nook is a must and there are so many ways t' accomplish this, start by askin' yer child where they prefer t' read. Do they like t' sit or lounge with lots o' pillows or perhaps add a bean bag and a favourite blankie? One fabulous way t' invite yer child t' read is add a book rack (or two) these can be bought or easily made, they are basically just small ledges that let ye show th' front art work o' their picture books, always invitin' yer child t' read.
Clear or open bins within reach fer art supplies, buildin' blocks and other thinkin' toys. Children are more creative when thin's aren’t “put away”, when they have these thin's down where they can see and reach them, ye won’t hear “I’m bored” very often at all.
Adults need spaces t' think, create and have quiet, when needed, little sandcrabs require th' same. Make sure th' room is light and bright, and it will be their favourite place in th' house (and maybe yours too.)
