Fun and Quirky Accessories for Your Child’s Room

Your child’s bedroom is a place where they can let loose and be anything they want to be. If they want to be a sloth, they can have a safe place where they can laze around in their pretend tree and be a sloth. Explore your child’s imagination and add some fun and quirky accessories to your child’s room. Themes for your child’s bedroom are always a must. If you are going to give your child’s room a theme, you can split the space into separate areas, with different themes and then add fun and quirky accessories.  

Accessories for play areas

Play areas don’t always have to be rooms full of toys—you can designate an area in the child’s bedroom just for them to wig out and play! Try adding a playhouse in your child’s room. You can easily buy an outdoor play structure and assemble it in the room so your child has a haven to play and learn. Try adding a teepee or a hide away tent to your child’s play area so they can pretend they are in a land far, far away. If your child likes to play with cars, get a carpet with a road map where your child can sit and race cars with their friends or siblings.

Accessories for reading areas

Reading areas don’t have to be a bore. Make reading fun again by bringing your child’s favorite book to life with stuffed characters and decor! You can jazz up your reading space by adding cool wall decals that are themed to your child’s favorite animal or character. Throw some decorative kids pillows down on the ground and let your child lie down and enjoy a good book. Or enjoy falling asleep to a good book on their big comfy pillow. Get a fun shaped bookshelf for your child to enjoy, like one in the shape of their first initial, in the shape of a wooden house, or even in the shape of an animal.

Lighting is important to a child in their reading area. Lamps come in all shapes and sizes. You can get lighting in the shape of a cloud, balloon, or even your child’s favorite superhero. Children like to read with flashlights and low lighting. Let your child pretend that they’re camping under the stars by adding a tent with a star projector to your child’s reading area. Lava lamps are also a good source of lighting for reading areas.

Accessories for lounging areas

Adults like to get away and veg out in a lounge area after work. Why wouldn’t children want to lounge out in their rooms after school? Turn a designated area of your child’s bedroom into their favorite lounge spot. Add some accessories like hammock chairs, or hanging pods that they can sit in to just get away from their worries. Lounge areas could have cool blow up furniture like a blow up couch that your child can use to lay back and play some video games or watch tv. Throw some bean bags on the floor in the shape of their favorite animal, or get a funny shaped chair for their lounging area. Your child’s lounging area can quickly become their go-to area to get away from it all and fuel their imagination.

Even the tiniest rooms can be a castle with a moat and a fire-breathing dragon to guard it, in a child’s eyes, that is. Add accessories to the room to enhance the experience. Bring out the creativity in your child after their long day of logical thinking. Give your child the space they need to encourage their imaginations to soar.

3 Fun Interior Design Ideas for Creative, Crafty Kids

When you have crafty, creative kids, they want to make an artsy DIY project out of everything. This includes your interior designs and home décor. Therefore, you should allow them to express their creative flow in one, or all, of the following ways. Be sure to show these suggestions to your kids to inspire their inner artists.

Handprints that Dot the Walls

Instead of doing a custom paint job in your kiddos’ bedrooms, opt for a white-wash of the walls. Then invest in non-toxic paints [that easily wash off] in a rainbow of fun colors, like varying shades of blue, red, green, and purple. Have your crafty youngster dip their hands into the paints, then press their handprints to the walls in whatever patterns and locations they want. Let them go crazy with full reign over where they want to dot their bedroom walls. They might even get super-creative and create cool murals with nothing but their fingertips and palms.

Chalkboard Surfaces for Quick, Creative, Anywhere Doodles

Reserve a portion of your home for a chalkboard surface. Most people put these surfaces on their fridges, which is a great idea for toddlers. But, for older kids, try a bedroom wall that is one big chalkboard surface. Or, pick an area in a hallway. Then invest in traditional chalk, marker chalk, or washable chalk paints that give your kids the creative freedom to doodle anywhere, any time. This is the ultimate crafty DIY fun-board for artsy children. And you will likely get called to look at their creations on a regular basis. Plus, it keeps them busy for hours, so you can get some much-needed housework or lounge time in.

DIY Wreaths for the Front and Back Doors

Include your children in decorating for seasons and/or the holidays with DIY wreaths for the front and back doors. Let them pick the colors and accents. For instance, if you are helping with a Halloween wreath, suggest black and orange scrunched tulle with plastic bats, plastic spiders, and cool cobwebs tossed in. Or, if you want a season-based wreath, pick out the parts of a season that you both love. For example, spring could be a mix of robin’s egg blue and green with little violets to symbolize the rebirth of nature. Whatever they come up with, hang these wreaths on your doors with pride.

You never know, your allowance of creative freedom could set your kids up to be home remodeling contractors one day. The above-detailed fun, quirky DIY projects are creative and perfect for crafty kids. Plus, each project can inspire your inner muse, thus producing craftier stuff for your creative youngsters to do on a daily basis.
