It’s that magical time of the year again! Since Christmas is just around the corner, you have probably started decorating your home with all types of twinkling lights and ornaments. Maybe you have even already tackled the Christmas tree and completed the hallway, living room and the front yard decor.
If you want to introduce your kids to the holiday and make all psyched about Christmas, consider decorating their room as well. You can go into the full winter-wonderland mode, or you can stick to some simple decorations that will add holiday spirit into their room. If after all the decorating you feel a little bit uninspired, here are some ideas to jog your imagination.
Add a small tree
Is there a law against having several Christmas trees in your home? I don’t think so. Therefore, get a small one you will place in your kids’ room and let them decorate it on their own. You can even play some Christmas carols, make hot cocoa and make an afternoon out of it. Nothing says Christmas more than a tree decorated with all kinds of ornaments, so this is a good place to start.
Make a holiday village
Christmas is about spending time with your loved ones, so find some time in your busy schedule and make a holiday village with your little ones that you can later display in their room. Take a couple of cereal boxes and transform them into a magical holiday village with some wrapping paper, candy, and craft supplies. If your little ones enjoy making decorations on their own, you can find great holiday craft ideas on this website.
You cannot go wrong with a garland
Puffy holiday garlands add that festive touch no matter where you hang them, so save some of them for your kids’ room. Take the artificial evergreen garland, adorn it with soft Christmas lights and you will have the perfect nightlight for the season. If you and your little ones are feeling crafty, you can make your own garlands out of, well, almost anything.
Take old pom-poms your daughter doesn’t want to use anymore or party decorations that have been sitting in a drawer since your son’s last birthday and turn them into sparkly decorations. You can also use oversized tassels, honeycomb balls or even dyed popcorn. When you are done making them, the only thing there is left to do is to figure out where to hang them. Soft ones can go over your child’s bed, but if you have a baby in the house don’t hang them over a crib for safety reasons. You can also place garlands on their dresser, over the window, or put it on one of their oversized plush toys.

Add a little glamour to the bedroom door
Holidays are the best time to use all that wrapping paper you’ve been dying to get rid of. Use some of it to transform your kid’s bedroom door into an oversized present. If this seems like too much work, or you simply don’t have that amount of wrapping paper, use it to create tiny bows you can stick to the surface of the door. You can even take the minimalistic approach and just put up a sign welcoming your little ones to their own winter wonderland.
Dressing their plush toys to look like mini Santas, making snowflakes out of paper, decorating their windows with snow spray… When it comes to decorating your kids’ room for the holidays, the options are endless. Therefore, roll up your sleeves, check out these suggestions and get started.
