What a fantastic morning I had with the girls on The Circle today! If you thought there were laughs on the screen you should have seen it when we weren't on air. My lips are sealed!
I was invited on today (Tuesday 13th April) to talk about fun things for kids.
I think kids make a lot of their own fun and are always looking for ways to be inspired (even though they don't always know it) so I looked for things to bring on the show that I thought would not only stimulate visually, but give kids either an outlet to create or to give them reason to 'dream'.
Even though this Castle and Rocking chair are for the kids, we had way too much fun putting them together and painting them. I hope the kids in your house get the chance to play with these! The chair can take up to 40 kilos in weight which means it could last them all through Primary School!
These rugs are the perfect 'decor' starter for a kids room. The rugs can set the theme and then all you simply need to do is add a bright doona with some of the colours in the rug, and you have a new room the same day!
Wall decals have come a long way over the past year and these removable decals really struck me as the pictures were so unusual and quirky! I thought the one on the left was perfect for kids to either help them count sheep to sleep, with numbers added gradually as they sleep in their own bed, or for any other use to give a positive effect in your child's room. www.jujube.net.au
And last but not least these beautiful lamps. I could have called them bedside lamps but I think they can be put in so many different places of a room. High on a shelf, under the window, sitting amongst the soft toy collection, but most of all it should be placed in a spot your child can see perfectly from their bed. There is something serene and magical about these lamps that I think will soothe a child back to sleep from a nightmare or as they are first trying to sleep, and help conjour beautiful dreams as their imagination goes wild. www.downtothewoods.com.au
So there you go, a children's room isn't just about pink or blue but a place of excitement, inspiration and the beginnings of wonderful childhood memories :)
