There are many benefits to designating a separate playroom for your child. You can better separate play time from sleep time or homework time, and it will allow one room where making a mess is encouraged rather than squelched. Make your kids’ playroom more fun by adding one or more of these unique elements:
1. Kids Wall Decals are a great way to make imaginative play seem more real. Traditionally, only those will some kind of artistic ability could incorporate this fun decor theme; but there is good news. Even if you have virtually no artistic skills whatsoever you can use a ready made mural that looks like the real thing (or better…depends on whose painting…). SensoryEdge offers the high quality line of wood murals by Timberfish. You can choose from a variety of settings, like scenes at the beach or mountains.
2. Create imagination stations with separate play centers in various parts of the room. This is how classrooms divide toys amongst numerous children, but the concept can work equally well at home. You can have different parts of the city with a doctor’s office in one corner and a police station in the other. Set up pretend groceries stores, houses and other real life settings for kids to enjoy.
3. Kids of all ages love climbing toys, and there are various shapes and sizes to accommodate any age group. Infants and toddlers may benefit from the foam variety like the Climbing Tunnel Labyrinth Soft Play. Climbing, jumping, crawling and tumbling not only give children hours of entertainment; it allows them to build major muscle groups, enhance balance and coordination and reinforce the learning of other important skills.
4. You may also decide to set up a separate area in the playroom for drawing and other activities. Puzzles, crayons and coloring books are all good choices for fun and artistic pastimes for kids of all ages. To further enhance the experience you can purchase special desks to match the decor, easels or kids tables. Pick tables and other furniture items that are sturdy and made to last, like the Farm House Table and Chair Set by KidKraft. They are made from solid materials that will last year after year: child after child.
Allow your child to help in the design of their playroom. Giving them more freedom in choices involving decor and other items will encourage them to spend time there learning and playing.
