pieces in a grouping and display it in their rooms.
they have a hobby or special interest, put up a few posters to reflect it.
Try and display anything that they have made, created or worked on either in
your house or in their rooms. You can put up collections from hobbies,
past or present, completed jig saw puzzles, with the pieces glued on a board
and framed, mementos from vacations or other family outings, programs from
school productions, and pictures of family, friends, and pets. It is their room.
Involve them in the process and let their rooms reflect their life.
Wallpaper border prints are also a great way to bring color
and themes into a child's room. Keep it at chair rail height so your child
can see it.
