Decorating the family home for Christmas is one of the most enjoyable times of the year, and it’s certainly something the kids should get involved in. Decorating your child’s bedroom is a lovely way to make your home feel more Christmassy, plus it gets the kids involved in the decorating, not to mention even more excited for the big day. There are lots of ways you can decorate your children’s bedrooms to make them look festive this season, without spending too much money.
Since washing and changing the bedsheets is already on the weekly job list, it’s a great time to swap to some festive, Christmas-themed bedlinen for the kid’s beds. There are lots of options available, and they don’t have to cost a lot of money. This single duvet set from eBay is ideal for a child’s room and might even make washing the sheets a little more of a festive task.
To top the bed, a furry throw or blanket is the perfect choice for wrapping up warm, especially when you’re reading Christmas bedtime stories. Arlo & Jacob have a lovely range of blankets and throws made from natural materials, like wool, sheepskin and cashmere, which would be perfect for adding a festive, furry touch to your kid’s bedroom. The sheepskin option could also double up as a fluffy rug.
We’ve all seen the infamous John Lewis advert with this year’s loveable Moz the Monster and his adorable gift of a night light. A lovely nightlight is always a good idea and can fill your child’s room with a magical glow. Here is the exact starry lamp from John Lewis that will warm your heart and put a smile on your little one’s faces this Christmas.
For the highly anticipated Christmas Eve, it’s the perfect time to invest in some personalised stockings or festive-themed sacks to hang at the end of the bed. How adorable is this starry night sack from Sophie Allport? It’s bound to get the kids excited for the arrival of Father Christmas and the perfect place for you to stash their toys afterwards.
Another fun activity to do in the weeks on the run up to Christmas is to make paper snowflakes to hang from the ceiling in the kid’s bedrooms, along with paper chains for some retro Christmas décor. These pre-cut paper chain strips from Wilko are ideal for making your own Christmas decorations and getting the kids involved in the festive fun.
