Turn your child's playroom into a great space for them to play in! See a smile on your child's face today with these nine playroom ideas.
Ask any child what their favorite activity is, and the answer will likely be playtime.
Playtime is important for a variety of reasons. It’s in the playroom where children learn and develop important life skills, such as motor and problem-solving skills.
The playroom also serves as a safe little haven for the little ones to rest and relax.
Here are nine types of playroom decor you can use to give your beloved child(ren) a memorable childhood:
Put up illustrations of Disney princesses, Marvel superheroes, or cute furry animals on their room’s walls. Place whatever tickles your child’s fancy, really.
Art sets the mood and adds character to any space. If used properly in the playroom, such pieces of art will make playtime more fun and dynamic.
Bonus if the murals have educational messages on them, like the ones shown above! We adore the gentle encouragement given – it’s apt for particularly young and sensitive souls.
A reading corner, a pretend play area, a ‘sleepover’ tent – these are just a few of the many possible ways to use a teepee.
The teepee is a type of tent which origins can be traced to ancient nomadic tribes of America.
When it comes to playroom decor, however, the teepee is simply a great place for children to learn while roleplaying as their favorite fantasy characters.
Consider yourself warned, though – the teepee is such a magical place that once your child goes in, they might never want to come out. Ever.
Which child could resist diving straight into a pit full of balls? (For the record, I couldn’t when I was a child.)
With a ball pit, you’ll never worry about your kids being bored again: they’ll have a blast in there for hours on end.
Dubious about how fun a ball pit can actually be? While they may look simple, never estimate the power of good old-fashioned fun.
Apart from being a source of entertainment, these also stimulate a child’s interest in colors, shapes, and textures, thereby promoting sensory development.
Overall verdict: it’s undoubtedly a childhood essential, we say.
This one’s for all them budding nature lovers out there. That’s right – I’m referring to the kiddos who enjoy climbing trees, playing in mud, and other outdoor activities.
If spending the day in nature isn’t enough for them, why not let them spend the night with it, too?
Treehouse beds allow your child(ren) to connect with nature; they bring out your child’s senses of wonder and exploration.
Don’t worry about how safe this particular treehouse bed is: it’s made of 100-percent pine wood with steel reinforcement points to ensure its durability.
During my time, traditional board games like Scrabble and Monopoly ruled. However, things are vastly different these days.
Technology seems to have woven its way into every aspect of our lives… including children’s’ toys.
For kids, this means more tech toys or – at the very least – toys that involve some form of technology. For instance, take the robot pictured above.
Touted by its maker as a “good playmate for kids,” the DEERC Robot Toy can recognize human voices and respond to words with music and dance.
Time spent with this robot pal will be fruitful, to say the least. By just clapping thrice, kids can enjoy three songs and have fun whilst learning. What’s not to like?
Learning about the world’s animals (or any other topic, for that matter) will never be boring again with wall decals like these.
Alphabets, the solar system, Disney princesses… there are lots of options for every child (yes, even the fussiest ones).
Wall decals are great because practically no commitment is required. Changed your mind and want something else on the wall? Just take it off right away.
The thing with kids is that, more often than not, they end up playing on the floor.
As such, playroom flooring is really important. Try to cushion your child’s legs/knees/body with a nice, fluffy rug.
Pique your child’s curiosity by choosing a brightly-colored rug or one with illustrations on it.
This playroom rug, for example, allows your tot to feel as if they were in a fictional town themselves. Imagine little feet walking on those “roads”; ain’t that adorable?
Tired of your kid ruining your perfectly good walls? Here’s a product that will hopefully save the day: chalkboard wallpaper.
As the name implies, this wallpaper can also double as a chalkboard. These can be pasted over your playroom walls.
Easy to install and remove, chalkboard wallpapers allow for fuss-free writing, drawing, and erasing any time.
The kids are happy, but so are their parents. It’s a win-win situation!
Children tend to outgrow things quickly: before you know it, your child has gone from loving the color green to making it their mortal enemy.
How best to cater to their ever-changing needs, then? Well, one simple way would be to incorporate color using accessories.
Take your time to experiment with different accessories like pillow covers, throw rugs, and even larger objects like lamps. Mix and match different patterns and colors to see which combination suits your playroom best.
Apart from adding color, accessories like pillow covers and throw rugs also add texture, which is wonderful because it makes the playroom pop.
Never doubt the importance of a well-designed/decorated playroom: it’ll make your child happy, and aid them in their development as well.
Impress your child’s friends (and maybe even their parents) with these ideas today!
