Making your home a happy place to play will develop your children’s mental and physical wellbeing.
Plus, thinking up new ways to stoke their imagination is enjoyable for us grown-ups, too.
From fort building to fairy doors, check out these clever ways of making your home a magical place for kids to grow up in. Read on for more!
Play on a rug
A colorful, graphic play rug will not only protect floors but, spark plenty of imaginary fun.
Road and city map rugs are classic but why not try something more original like a bird’s-eye farm scene or this funky beach house mat, which is three dimensional for more tactile fun.
Blast into space
Kids are usually into a theme so if you’ve got the budget why not turn their bedroom or playroom into their own personal fantasy world?
This intergalactic bedroom has been made a masterpiece thanks to the impressive rocket shaped armchair.
It has a light and sound system controlled by a mobile app to play a choice of music, light effects, and sleep time. And, the four engines are storage compartments.
Encourage green fingers
Build a bivouac or wigwam with leaning garden poles wrapped in ivy. Or, better still a sweet-pea climber frame-turned-tepee makes a fun DIY project to involve children with.
The plants grow at an astonishing rate and they can watch it transform into a beautiful living canopy perfect for hiding in.
Hang up a swing
If you can’t swing outdoors, then the only solution is to swing indoors, obviously! This stylish wood and canvas baby swing converts into a toddler swing and is also suitable for the garden.
Be sure to comply with manufacturer’s instructions for ceiling installation and weight restrictions.
Light the sky
Be creative with light. A soft glowing room will soothe children when quiet time is needed. Reach for the sky with motif moon and clouds style wall lights, and twinkling planets; cosmic dreams are sure to follow.
