Designing A Creative Kids Room To Inspire Imagination

by Kari Weingart

Unlike your bedroom, which is primarily used for sleeping, dressing, and relaxing, your children’s rooms are much more versatile. They serve not only as places to sleep and dress, but also places for creativity, imagination, learning, and active play. 

For pre-school-age children, a bedroom is a good spot for reading before bed and playing with toys after a nap. As children start school, their bedroom will become a more socially-oriented space as they begin to use their rooms as a place to play when they have playdates with their classmates.

The ideal kids’ room offers a safe environment with sturdy furniture and non-toxic materials. Laid out correctly, it will also cultivate play and learning experiences. Apart from furniture, your kid’s room should include plenty of educational items like books and games, as well as movable objects that a child can feel, stack, and manipulate. Items for creating art and music or playing pretend are also very enriching. All these things are valuable pieces in your child’s overall educational program. 

With this in mind, today we want to share with you a few creative kids’ room ideas you can use to morph your kid’s room to help inspire their imagination and development.

Install A Chalkboard

Installing a chalkboard or using a can of chalkboard wall paint is a quick and easy room upgrade that will be something your kid will use for many years. Any time the mood strikes, they can grab a piece of chalk and draw out whatever they are imagining on a blank canvas that is always there for them.

Create A Theme Bedroom

One of the greatest things about being a kid is learning about (and becoming obsessed) with so many new things. One great way to inspire your kid’s imagination and give them a stage to make-believe and really enjoy playing in their room is by designing their room in the theme of their current favorite thing.

Create A Fort In Their Room

One of the most amazing opportunities to inspire imagination in your kid is by giving them a fort in their room they can use to play in. Forts offer endless opportunities for playtime, allowing them to take ownership of the space and design it exactly the way they want. They will have countless opportunities to make-believe and imagine great play scenarios that will keep them engaged and entertained for hours on end.

Great Holiday Decorations The Entire Family Can Get Involved In

by Kari Weingart

With the holidays upon us and kids getting holiday time off of school, it’s time to focus less on the day to day hustle and bustle of life and enjoy more time with our friends, family and loved ones. One of our favorite pastimes during this time of year is working on holiday-themed arts and crafts projects the entire family can participate in.


There are many fantastic decorations you can make to give your home a festive holiday look that utilize things in our natural `surroundings. Here are some of our favorites.


Pinecone Wreaths

Bring a little bit of the outdoors to your front door. Start by laying out the pinecones in around a wreath frame. Then, hot glue all of the pinecones to the frame, starting with the main circle. Continue to glue the pinecones around the entire frame. You may need to use a little wire and extra hot glue to secure a few pinecone tips that are hard to line up.                                                                      


Chalk Paint Ornaments

You and your kids can custom-make your own ornaments by painting them with chalk paint, then writing on them with chalk. You can doodle on a holiday design, or personalize them with your names and special dates (birthdays, anniversaries, and so on).

Cut some wood from your backyard into circles and then paint it with chalk paint. Once it dries, let your kids get to work on a holiday masterpiece. Hot glue a ribbon to it for a holder and you will be able to display your beautiful ornaments on your Christmas tree.

Twig Ornaments

This one is a super fun one to do with kids: Use twigs, glue, and embroidery thread or twine to make custom ornaments that are inspired by nature. The best part of this project is that even if you live in a city, you still have access to tons of great twigs you can use to make your decorations.

Pinecone Owls

Nothing is more festive than pinecones during the holidays. What better way to make your Christmas tree look more natural than with an owl that is sitting in the tree keeping watch? With a little felt and a pinecone, your kids can whip one a creative, festive-looking owl that will make your tree look fantastic.

Milk Carton Gingerbread Village

While most people recycle their milk cartons that they accumulate at home, why not upcycle them? Use your empty milk cartons to create the cutest gingerbread village ever. Once built, you can store it and re-use it year after year. Even better, you can expand it year after year, building an exciting, ever-growing Christmas village.
