Decorating your home can be a mighty task and it can be hard to know whether or not the outcome will be worth it in the end. You want to make sure everyone in the family is happy with the results, so, why not get everybody involved? By letting your kids help you out, you’ll be opening a whole new world of learning to them. They’ll love being given a sense of responsibility and it’s a great chance for you to bond as a family. Let’s dive into some of the different ways your kids can offer you a helping hand with your home decor.
Canvas prints from hello canvas are a wonderful way to decorate your walls with photographs that you love. To get your children involved with this, you can shortlist 10 of your favourite images, and then get them to pick the ones they like the best to be turned into canvases for your house. These add a real personal touch to your home, and you can get them in various sizes and shapes. Not to mention they’re great value for money, so you could get a different frame for each room if you wanted to!
Let Them Pick Colours and Themes For Their Rooms
When it comes to decorating your kids’ bedrooms, you should really let them have their input. Although children can be fickle, ensure that they know that the decisions they make regarding this will last a long time so they need to be certain. Their rooms are their havens where their personalities can shine. So if they’re a bookworm, a cosy reading nook and bookshelf is just the ticket. If they love animals, you could have animal-themed posters and toys. Let their rooms reflect their interests, but keep in mind that they will grow out of certain things faster than others.
Display Their Artwork
If they bring art and crafts back from school or nursery then you should showcase it wherever possible! This shows them you’re proud of them and it encourages them to continue doing their best. You could even get them to create some pieces at home, whether it’s paintings or home crafts, you can have a little display dedicated to their work.
When it comes to simple DIY, why not get the kids involved? These tasks will be age-dependent but little things, such as screwing a screw or passing you specific tools, can teach them about how things work and that effort pays off. It can be a great opportunity for them to improve their practical skills whilst having fun helping.
So, whilst you’re going to have to do the bulk of the work yourself, there are still endless ways you can get your kids involved in the process, which can make it more enjoyable for you and them. They’ll love to see everything coming together and feel a sense of achievement knowing that they played a part in the process.
