Christmas is a magical time for children. It is the part of the year where they all have something to look forward to and everyone wants to make them happy. Whether it’s music, activities, films, presents, trips and holidays, children can enjoy December immensely and there is so much you can do with them to help them make the most of this. One method is through decorating their room.

Decorating for Christmas is an activity a child can look forward to all year and so there’s no reason to keep things simple. Rather than just decorating the living room and maybe putting some lights outside you can do more for your children and add some Christmas decor in their room, all of which can last the whole year round.

Christmas lights are a staple of decorating for the season and they can be a fun addition to any room. Whether they are one or multiple colours, blinking or constant, or whatever, you can add them to any room for a lot of fun. Placing these along the wall of a child’s room will instantly make it look more festive but they can be left there all year long for some great lighting options. You can also wrap them around certain parts of the room, such as bedposts, poles, windowsills and more. Wrapping their bed with the lights can create a magical place to rest.

Christmas cards are a way of showcasing the wishes we receive from friends an family as well as adding some Christmas decor to our home. It’s likely that your child will receive many Christmas cards at school so is displaying me can be a great idea. The best option for your child’s room is with string and clips. Pin or tape a long piece of string on the wall and you can clip the cards to it for way of displaying them all. You could also try beads, ribbons and more. This can remain up after Christmas as you can hand pictures and drawing on the string as a cheap and convenient display option.

It’s worth remembering that after Christmas, your child will have lots of new toys. When decorating for Christmas you can consider new storage. Toy boxes can be found in many types, from plain to themed ones, in various sizes and shapes. You can have your child help select one with you, so know you will get furniture right for them. A plain one can be painted and decorated, allowing it to be Christmas-y during December. Shelving and display options will also be useful so their new toys can be put on show and during the Christmas season, you can put up appropriate ornaments, a manger scene and more.

Decorating a child’s room at Christmas can be a lot of fun and with the right approach, the results will last a lot longer.
