Looking for a
place to start as you're working on organizing and decorating your home,
especially in a child's room? Try out one of these eight project ideas.
1. Frame children's art
projects. There are a couple of
different ways to do this. You can do a big art project with your kids
and let them put their artwork on canvas, or you can choose a frame that makes
it easy to swap out the artwork for their latest favorite piece. This
will allow you to easily save their favorites and display their artwork for
everyone to see while preventing your walls and fridge from being filled with
2. Hang up words of
wisdom. Let your kids help you
pick a favorite quote and put it on canvas. Even better, put it directly
on your wall. Want to get the kids even more involved? Consider an
abstract background and let them help you swirl on the paint.
3. Get creative with a
tile mirror border. Pick a pattern
that the kids can follow and let them help put the tiles in place. Discounted glass tiles are available
online and make a great, colorful choice.
4. Create a door
toy-hanger. The door of your
child's room is an under-utilized storage space. Use a shoe organizer to
store toy cars, dolls, or small stuffed animals. Whatever toy it is that
takes over your child's room, put them in this ready-made organizer to display
them and keep them ready at hand while making cleanup easier than ever before.
5. Create letters for
wall art. Buy letters from a craft
store and decorate them however you like. You can wrap them with yarn,
paint them, or cover them with any material you can think of.
6. Transform old
furniture with fun colors. When
your kids are young, they're hard on furniture. It probably has plenty of
dings and scratches. Update
that old piece of furniture with a fresh coat of paint in a fun color that will brighten up your child's
7. Build branch swing
shelves. Bring the outdoors inside
as you pick up sticks outdoors, drill holes in the ends, and use rope to
create the perfect perch for favorite stuffed animals. These delightful
shelves will let your kids keep their favorite stuffed animals close at
8. Build a curtain
shelf. You're always looking for
more places to store things in the kids' rooms. Design
a curtain shelf to give them a fun place for
those toys that they still want to keep, but which don't see a lot of use
When you let your kids
participate in the decorating process, you help keep their interest and make
them proud of what they've accomplished. It might not make a big
difference in their cleaning ability over time, but for at least a little
while, they'll love looking at the clean, neat decor and the memories created often last a lifetime.
Framing art projects can be combined with collage making. Save postcards, cinema tickets or anything else that contains memories and put these items in a frame together with the projects and you can create beautiful memory frames. They could also be seasonal themed. The possibilities are endless :)
