A little creativity with your children's bedding and curtains will make them feel that they have a place in your house, and that you care about them. This is a wonderful feeling for any parent, so give them some of the best they can expect by letting them help to decorate your bedding and curtains, and get the most out of each purchase.
First of all, it is important to teach your child about bedding and curtains before they even enter their first birthday party. This way, they will be more familiar with the decorations you have put on and can then choose which pieces of bedding and curtains they would like for their own room. They will also learn how much space they need in order to be comfortable when they get older.
It may take some time to find the right choices, but try to get them into the bedding and curtains that are based on many different kinds of themes. It might be fun for them to see your choices, and they can even choose what kind of headboard and footboard coverings you use. You can always get them a matching set. Just keep in mind that their personality will make it difficult to come up with all the different things that they might want to use. In general, though, you want to have a few different options to choose from.
If you can, get them to help you choose the curtains or the coverings they would like. Sometimes you can get them to select the colors of their room or even help you pick out the decorative pillows that will be used with their bedding sets.
Another way that you can encourage your child to help you shop for your bedding and curtains is to use the different options they have to decorate the room themselves. Give them a pair of crayons, markers, or crayon paint and have them take pictures of the rooms they like. Have the pictures printed out and stick them to the walls to show them. Then, give them a chance to decorate their own bedrooms, using the picture frames and pictures that are in their house. This is one way that you can encourage them to be creative and help you get the best out of your purchases.
Finally, when your child is done with their bedroom decorating, you should reward them with a gift certificate. This way, they can take as much time as they want to shop around, so that they will have plenty of time to return to your house once the project is done. As well, this will encourage them to spend more quality time in the bedroom with you.
