    Christmas kids decorating tips

     

    Helping your kids decorate their own rooms for Christmas is a fun way to share the season, brighten up their room, and keep everyone in a Christmas mood. Of course, you also want to stay away from messy crafts or dangerous electric lights. Below, we’ve put together 3 fun tips that bring the Christmas spirit without much mess.

     

    Homemade Christmas Calendar. We all know, kids can get anxious when waiting for the big day! Help ease the wait with a homemade Christmas calendar. Make one out of construction paper, and make each day come with a its own little reward, like a cookie or chocolate. Your local craft store will have all kinds of little decorative items that you can use, or just repurpose some old or damaged Christmas ornaments.

     

    Snowflake Decorations. If you’re living in Texas, you might not be getting a white Christmas, but you can help build the Christmas experience with a little homemade snow! Snowflake decorations are fun and easy to make - just any sheet of paper, some scissors, and a little technique, and your little ones will have unique Christmas decor for only the cost of the paper! Try tapping your homemade snowflakes to the bedroom window for an even better “North Pole” feeling.

     

    LED Christmas Night Light. Christmas is all about color and light. But for crafts, parents have to be careful of safety concerns. However, an LED “candle” light is a safe source of light that can be used for many things. A simple paper lantern can be created by creating a bag-shape with light holes using any colorful paper. Place the LED candle inside, and you’ve got a fun, Christmas-colored nightlight.

     

    We hope these ideas will help you bring some Christmas spirit into your kids rooms. Of couse, these are just a few simple ideas - there’s so many fun options for holiday decoration, we’re sure you’ll find something perfect for your family. The more your family can share activities like this, the more you’ll get in to the Christmas spirit. Sometimes a homemade craft can mean more than an expensive holiday gift!

  • Happy Thanksgiving! 3 Fun Ideas for Kid-Friendly Thanksgiving Holiday

     

    Thanksgiving is almost here! Families everywhere will soon be preparing to get together, have a great meal, and enjoy each other’s company. Thanksgiving is really a great holiday for parents and kids, as it’s a wonderful time to emphasize the importance of family and togetherness.

     

    Parents can try to take advantage of thanksgiving to teach kids about the importance of family, as well as the traditional message of being thankful. However, parents also know that to children, it can be hard for thanksgiving to compete with the fun of Christmas gifts or the sugar-high of Halloween.

    To help get your kids excited about Thanksgiving, the team here at Mom’s Bunk House has put together 3 fun ideas that kids and parents can enjoy together during the holidays. These are great ideas to get everyone together during these special days. remember, Halloween candy is gone in a couple days, and Christmas toys often forgotten in a few months, but Thanksgiving memories last forever.

     

    Let your kids join in on the cooking. While Mom might make the best stuffing in the world, and Dad might be an expert turkey-carver, kids can help out around the kitchen too. Getting the family cooking together can be a lot of fun, and is also a good way to teach kids some basic cooking skills - they’ll be on their own someday, and you want them to know how to cook more than just Kraft Dinner! Just remember to make safety a priority - sharp knives and hot stoves need to be kept away from the younger kids.

     

    Learn about the history of Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is more than just a great meal with the family - it represents a very important time in American history. Parents can use the Thanksgiving break to teach children about the founding of America, the early colonies, and the great leaders in American history. Giving your children a background in American history is wonderful way for them to appreciate their country.

     

    Ask your kids to take photos or videos of the holiday. While parents might have grown up on Thanksgiving crafts like macaroni-turkeys and feathers, traditional crafts might have a tough time competing with iPads and smartphones. Instead of fighting technology, why not embrace it, and let your kids take photos and videos of your holiday. Later they can be assembled into a scrapbook or digital collection, and shared with any friends or extended family that couldn’t be there in person.

     

    These are just a few ideas on how parents can get kids involved in the Thanksgiving fun. Of course, there’s so many ways for families to enjoy time together, we’re sure you’ll find something that works great for you and your family. Happy holidays!

     

  • Get Organized! Tips for a Tidy Kids' Bedroom

    Good news - if your kids’ bedroom is always neat, tidy, and organized, you don’t need to read this post.

    Still with us? We thought so! The truth is, every mom knows that keeping a child’s room clean is a constant struggle. Kids aren’t always known as the tidiest members of the family, and with the rush of school, work, activities, and daily chores, keeping bedrooms organized can be tricky.

     

    kids bedroom cleaning

     

     

    At Mom’s Bunk House, we know all about bedroom organization - it’s been our business for over 4 years. And we thought we’d write up some quick advice that parents everywhere can use to help keep kids organized.

     

    Set a good example, and clean together. Remember - kids do as kids see. If your children are used to living without much organization, it’ll be tougher for them to understand the value of cleaning their own space. When you get started teaching children to stay neat, also remember that your little ones might not have basic organization skills that parents take for granted. Teaching kids how to stay organized, and setting a good example, will go a long way to getting them to manage their own bedrooms well.

     

    Set a routine, and help them stick to it. There’s a familiar pattern that some Moms might know - a child’s room gets *really* messy, you insist that it gets cleaned, and a big struggle ensues. Even if the room does eventually get tidied, it’s only a matter of time until the mess reappears. You can break this unhealthy pattern by setting routines - like making the bed daily, helping with laundry weekly, and participating in a monthly “big clean”.

     

    Make sure you have the right furniture. You can’t expect organization if your kids don’t have the tools for the job. Having quality bedroom furniture that accommodates your child’s possessions is crucial for establishing order. Make sure that you’ve a least got some drawers for clothing, a bookshelf for books and school work, a desk or table for homework, and some general purpose storage for toys and games.

     

    Remember, getting your children organized isn’t just for the sake of appearances. When you teach your kids how to stay neat, you’re teaching valuable life skills that they’ll need once they move on to college and the working world. What do you think - what tips have you used to keep your kids’ bedrooms looking clean? Feel free to share your feedback in the comments!

     

  • Top 3 Children's Bedroom Essentials

    Every parent knows that a comfortable and functional child’s bedroom is important to making your child feel at home. You want your children to feel like their space is their own, but at the same time, you need to make sure that their furniture is durable, safe, and high quality.

     

    Of course, you’ll probably want to make sure that your child’s bedroom looks great, too! Investing in well designed furniture that both you and your children love is very important in making everyone happy and comfy at home.

    Tips for Choosing A Children's Bunk Bed

    When trying to assemble a child’s bedroom, you’ll certainly notice that you’ve got a wide range of options! It might even feel overwhelming to try to make the right decisions. At Mom’s Bunk House, we’ve been equipping kids’ bedrooms for years, and we’ve put together our thoughts on three of the most important parts of any kids’ room.

     

    1. A comfortable, quality bed. A bed is more than just another piece of furniture - it’s where your child will be spending almost one-third of their childhood! Getting a great night’s sleep is so important for success in school and general happiness. When choosing a bed, make sure that it’s big enough, that your child finds it comfortable, and most importantly, that is is safe and well built.

     

    2. A functional desk and chair. Call it the homework zone! These days, children are getting homework even in the first grade, and having a functional place where your child can sit and concentrate at home is a wonderful first step towards good grades. Make sure that both desk and chair fit your child well - you don’t want slouching or bad posture to become a habit.

     

    3. Good storage options. Dressers, drawers, bookcases, and toy boxes could all fall into this category. It’s up to you how many of these items your family needs, but you want to make sure that your children have a place to organize and store their books, clothes, and toys. Having good storage options will help teach your children to stay organized, and help to keep kids’ rooms as tidy as possible.

    We hope these tips help! Ultimately, as long as you’re investing in quality furniture that your whole family likes, you can’t go too far wrong. And, don’t feel like you need to get everything all at once - sometimes the most meaningful furniture collections are those assembled carefully over time.

  • 3 Things to Consider When Choosing a Kids’ Bunk Bed

    Choosing a bunk bed for your child is an important decision. A bed is a very important part of your child’s life - we spend about one third of our lives asleep, so it’s important to select a great bed that both you and your child will love.

     

    When trying to choose a bunk bed for your children, there are many options, and it can seem like a confusion decision. You want to make sure that your kids will enjoy their bed, but you also need to ensure that the bed will be safe. Additionally, you want to choose a bed that will look in your child’s bedroom and match the decor of your other children’s furniture.

     

    Choosing a Kids Bunk Bed

    At Mom’s Bunk House, we specialize in providing great children’s bunk beds in a wide range of styles, designs, and price ranges. In this post, we’ve put together 3 important factors that every family should consider when choosing a kids’ bunk bed.

     

    Construction Quality. The quality of your bunk bed’s construction is an extremely important factor. Firstly, safety is probably the most important single thing to consider. Nothing is more important than keeping your children safe, and a bunk bed built with quality materials and assembled correctly will prevent accidents and injuries. Secondly, we all know that kids can be hard on furniture! A well built bunk bed will last for years, and withstand playtime, jumping, and whatever else your children get up to.

     

    Size and Design. Do you want a twin bunk bed? Or a full bunk bed? Should both beds be the same size, or is a twin over full bunk bed the best choice? Making this selection is important to ensuring your children’s comfort. Basically, the selection comes down mainly to the age of your children - if they’re both around the same age, we suggest a full over full or twin over twin. If there’s a larger age gap, a twin over full bunk bed might be your best option.

     

    Color, Style, and Design. Whenever you’re choosing any furniture, you want to make sure that you like the design and style of the item. When choosing a kids’ bunk bed, you’ll also probably want to make sure your children are happy with the design of their bed as well. Keep in mind that girls and boys might prefer different designs, and that in some cases, a gender-neutral design might be ideal. You also want to think about bunk bed accessories - like stairs and drawers. Depending on the size of the child’s bedroom and the other furniture, different bunk bed accessories might be ideal.

     

    By taking these three factors into account, you’ll hopefully be able to choose a bunk bed that the whole family loves. We encourage you to check out our selection of Kids’ Bunk Beds as well - we’ve got a great collection available in many sizes and styles.
