Whether your child is obsessed with unicorns, LOL Dolls, pink in general or even the new craze of Tiktok, you can find the perfect way to incorporate their passion into their bedroom. Work with your kids to pick a theme that you both love but it is important to remember that the themed bedroom needs to last them a few years otherwise you’ll be redecorating on a regular basis.
Have a search online and you will be able to find the perfect bedding and accessories to make a feature in their brand new bedroom. However, it is important to get the basic bedroom furniture right and they can last the years as your child grows. Themed bedroom just needs the basics, and you can adapt everything else.
Let them Express Themselves
If you really want to give them some free reign with their new themed bedroom design, you could let them express their creativity with a chalk wall for them to doodle as they please or decide on what colours will go where in their bedroom. This isn’t for the faint-hearted but would allow your child to express themselves honestly and maybe reduce how often you need to retheme or redecorate your...
After a screen filled year of homeschooling and at-home entertainment as we were all told to stay at home and protect lives, a week with reduced screen time and going screen-free might actually benefit your whole family.
You can choose to pledge an evening, a day or even more than one day to turn off the TV and put down the IPads for some good old fashioned screen-free time. You don’t even have to make a big deal out of it, just tell your kids that you have other plans.
The screen-free pledge is part of a bigger initiative to unplug our lives to play, explore and rediscover the joys of life beyond screens. Plus, screen-free time might be able to give you some little ideas to help get your kids in bed on time and drift off quickly.
Play a board game
Carve out time to play an old favourite, try a new game, or make your own! Have a dig around your cupboards, head to the local charity shop, borrow an exciting game from a neighbour, and have a couple of hours dedicated to board games. Things might get very competitive quickly as your kids want to win, but this just...
Suddenly, your little one goes from tiny babies in a cot to inquisitive toddlers in the blink of an eye. As they grow you also need to change and adapt their nursery into a room suitable for an explorative toddler. The ideas of redecorating at each stage of their growth may be rather daunting and also not necessary. With careful planning, you can design a nursery that can easily transition as your child grows.
Knowing when the right moment is to transition from a cot to a toddlers bed isn’t straightforward and unfortunately, no one size fits all when it comes to this process. However, simple signs that it might be time to scale up is that they will climb out of their cot. This can happen at different stages for different children but if it happens at a younger age such as 12-18 months it is advisable to transition them to a toddler bed before going all out with a single bed.
Keep it neutral
By using neutral colours from the start, you’ll find that you won’t need to update the overall decor too often. You can add accessories that suit your child's interests and help show their personality without...
