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...

We’ve been living under Covid 19 restrictions for over 1 year now, meaning that school holidays have changed a lot. With holidays either in the UK or abroad out of the picture and a restriction on the number of people we can see and where we can go, knowing what to do during the Easter holidays is complicated.
Children still want and need to be entertained even if we have limitations placed upon us. Here are some of our ideas to try during the Easter holidays:
Let them have ‘me’ time
Half an hour to yourself as a parent is utter bliss and as a child, this quiet time is important too. Make sure you give them time to enjoy playing on their own or watching a film in peace. Make sure they have a place they can go to relax and enjoy playing. Whether this is an under bed play area, a corner of the living room or in their bedroom, every child wants a space they can enjoy spending some me-time once in a while. You might even have the opportunity to enjoy a hot cuppa in peace too!
Egg-splore the outdoors
Take a walk around the local neighbourhood, explore the nearby...

It's still National bed month so we want to emphasise the importance of a good nighttime routine in children. It’s almost time for the clocks to change, the night’s become lighter and days become longer. Most of us revel in the change in clocks change but it can often play havoc in a bedtime routine and getting kids to sleep on time.
Keep to your routine
Don’t change anything just because the clocks have changed. It is important to stick to the routine you already have like clockwork. Homework, tea, bath, story time and lights out all need to continue at the same time.
Not only will this give you a bit of time on an evening but it will also ensure your little ones get the amount of sleep that they need before another busy day ahead.
Get beds they love
If your child loves their bed and the idea of bedtime then they are a lot more likely to get into bed each night and drift off. Whether it is a mid sleeper, in the style of a race car or princess bed or a bunk bed to share with siblings, knowing your kids want to go to bed is often half...

March is National Bed Month, which as you can probably imagine, we’re pretty excited by it! A whole month dedicated to fun and exciting bed designs, super comfy mattresses and most importantly sleep.
Organised by UK Sleep Council, the month aims to remind us all of why a sound sleep is good for our health and raise the importance of something many of us take for granted. A good night’s sleep can make you happier, healthier and motivated for the day ahead and that is exactly the same for your child.
A groundbreaking study found that switching an uncomfortable old bed to a lovely new bed meant an extra 42 minutes of sleep, which we find pretty incredible! Making sure you’ve got the right bed for your child could be the one thing that gets them to sleep through the night without waking up. Investing in a quality bed or mattress might just help you stay sane thanks to a good night's sleep!
Get the perfect bed
Your number 1 priority when making sure you’re kids get a great night sleepshould be the bed and the mattress. If it is uncomfy, lacks support or isn’t right for the room, then chances are your kids won’t...
