When you have kids in the house it is so important to add features that are kid friendly and keep them occupied. Especially during a third lockdown nationwide, we all need to do what we can to keep the kids happy and entertained at home.
If you are looking for a DIY project that will benefit everyone in the family, today we have some great ideas for features to bring into the home that will make it more fun for the kids.
Get a small pet
Now, we know this isn’t a feature of the home however we thought it was worth sharing this because it can make a massive difference to your kids. A pet such as a rabbit or a guinea pig is an ideal companion for your child at home – and you can allow them to run wild in the house during the day. Allowing your child to look after a small pet like this will teach them responsibility but will also allow you to keep them happy in lockdown.
Create a mural wall
One way to add some fun to your child’s bedroom is to paint a mural on the wall. If you are a dab hand with a paintbrush you can spend a few hours painting characters such as Disney princesses or superheroes on the wall of your child’s bedroom. Create a whole wall full of fun characters and watch your child enjoy this feature of their room.
Add colour everywhere
Colour might not be the ‘style’ in interior design right now – but colour is important for children. Colour evokes emotion and creativity and adding lots of small splashes of colour around the home can be crucial for your child’s healthy development. Bring brightly coloured cushions, artwork, and other features into the home this year and the kids will love it.
Have a doodling wall in their bedroom
We know that having kids can be difficult, and when they are young in particular they can do damage to the home causing financial strain and the need for Payday loans for repairs. To avoid having to pay out to repaint your walls to wallpaper the home – create a fooling wall in your child’s bedroom where they are free to do whatever they want. You can use chalkboard paint to create a blackboard wall in the bedroom and give your child a set of colourful chalks to keep them busy.
Have a dedicated toy corner
Your child wants to feel like they have a space in every room that is theirs to use. For younger children one thing you can do is create a little gaming corner in your living room with a toy box, table and chairs, and a colourful mat. Imagine a doctors office waiting room, and create a play area similar to this in your home which will keep your child occupied and happy at home.
Take on these tips and add some fun features to your home this year for the kids.
