There are plenty of ways to turn your kid’s room’s wall into a fun canvas, and why not go the extra mile and make it more interactive? You can create a dynamic gallery wall by framing your child’s artwork, drawings, and achievements and encouraging them to pin on any new creations.
Go to your local crafts store and get some corkboard squares or magnetic boards so they can change the displays themselves. This will make for a beautiful décor item and a fun game for your children. Having a space they can arrange however, they want will encourage their artistic side and give them the freedom to express themselves.
Paint a Chalkboard Wall
Chalkboards are a great learning tool for kids, and they can also be a fun accessory to add to their room. You can turn a section of the wall into a chalkboard surface where kids can let their creativity run wild. It’s as easy as going to an arts and crafts store and buying chalkboard paint to create a designated area for drawing, writing messages, or playing games.
Your kids will be entertained for hours! And, of course, there’s the huge added value of not having to repaint your walls because your kids suddenly decided the house looked like a blank canvas.
Make No-Sew Pillow Covers
Another arts and crafts project you can do with your kid is making no-sew pillow covers. You’ll need some plain fabrics, felt shapes, fabric paint, and fabric glue, and of course, you can go a little crazy and get some glitter and any other accessories. Next, buy some medium-sized pillows at a retail store; they’ll only be a few dollars.
Measure the pillows’ shapes and cut out a piece of fabric accordingly, then decorate it with your kid however you like. You can then glue the fabric onto the pillow, and your kid will now have something they made when they go to bed or sit in their reading corner.
Use Colorful Clothespin Clips to Make a Display
Once you have kids, the number of clothespin clips in the house magically multiplies by a hundred; somehow, you’re always doing laundry, and there are never enough clips. So, the next time you’re at the store buying another pack of 100 clips, separate a few for this DIY project.
Grab a few wooden clothespin clips from the bag and paint them in colorful hues or patterns, then attach them to a string or wire and place them along the wall of your kid’s room. This will make for a fun and functional way to display your kid’s artwork, photos, or any notes.
Design a Themed Growth Chart
Tracking your child’s height is always a fun and wonderful way to chart their growth and keep them entertained. You can make this into a fun activity by designing your own growth chart in a theme that your child likes, such as dinosaurs, Disney characters, cars, ocean creatures, jungles, animals, space, or others.
Get some colorful and themed stickers to create a beautiful growth chart; you can add a special character to each measurement to make it fun. This will not only be functional but will also become a special room decoration that you and your child will treasure forever.
