While it is still technically early and there is still a little while to go, Christmas is definitely on the horizon and fast approaching. And after the challenging year that everyone has had, getting into the festive spirit early could be just what everyone needs right now. With the country still in lockdown 2.0, the lead-up to the big day will look very different this year compared to previous ones, so if you can’t go out to the Christmas market, why not bring the festivities to you instead and start decorating early? The living room usually tends to be the main focus, but that doesn’t mean that the kids’ rooms can’t also make the most of the holiday season. It really doesn’t take a lot to make a kid’s room feel like Christmas, but if you are stuck for ideas, here are four tips to bring that warm Christmas feeling to your kids indoors to make them feel as cosy and bright as possible!
Such a quick way to completely change up a room, swapping out your kid’s bedding for a cute Christmas themed design is a guaranteed way to pop a smile onto their face while completing overhauling the room in one simple step. Whether you are buying a bedding set for a single bed or three different ones for a set of Triple bunk beds from Cuckooland, there are so many different designs out there that you are bound to find the right one that will match the decor of the room and your children will love! If you feel extra generous, why not buy two to ensure that you have a backup during washing days? From polar bears to penguins and reindeers, you will be spoilt for choice.
Dotting and sprinkling some fairy lights around the room is an instant way to add a touch of festive sparkle and hygge cosiness. Inexpensive while packing a punch, they are great all year round while also being incredibly festive and, once again, go with nearly any decor. There are some fantastic and relatively inexpensive options out there so you won’t have to break the bank, and many come battery-operated, so you don’t have to worry about your electricity bill spiralling out of control either. Drape them around beds, across desks and shelves or even stick them to the walls with some damage-free hanging hooks and get creative and make a tree light pattern. A quick word of warning, though – the kids will love them so much you’ll probably find it hard to take them back down again.
With the first of December looming, you can start planning this year’s advent calendar. Spruce up the traditional chocolate version and create your own DIY one to keep in their room instead. There are many different ways that you can combine both calendar and decor into one, and it’s a great way to let your creativity run free – you can even get your kids involved! Why not install a mini tree and with numbered baubles filled with chocolate or hang a themed garland across their wall with hanging boxes, one designed differently for every day? Not only does this make a great DIY project, but it is also a super fun activity to make time fly faster through the lockdown.
