Create an idealized woodland for your child by combining pictures, music, rugs and more with a woodland theme. The pictures can change, accommodating maturing taste as your child grows older.
Landlords often take a dim view of marks on the walls. The modern answer to the doorway growth chart sometimes found in older homes is the removable growth chart, already pre-marked with measurements. All you need to do is enter the child’s name and age. When your youngsters are taller than the chart, it can be put away with the baby pictures, the lock of hair from the first haircut and other memorabilia.
Posters and Canvases
Tastefully framed pictures, posters, and wrapped canvases can create a bright, yet restful environment for your growing child. Sometimes embellished with messages of encouragement or love, they send thoughts of continual, unconditional love that transcends the daily struggle to rear a responsible, thoughtful, loving child.
Peel and stick wall clings are a quick way to transform a room, and they can be easily removed without damaging paint. Some wall clings are reusable and can be moved from location to location. This can be important for families that must relocate frequently.
Responsibility is best taught by requiring children to take care of their own possessions, beginning with picking up their toys at the end of playtime. Having a secure place to store their things is an important part of this process. A prettily painted toy box with a lid that has safety hinges can facilitate cooperation from your youngster.
A pretty rug can keep back the chill, or make a place to play on the floor. No one ever said that child-rearing was easy, but having the right props can help. One message that should be part of every child’s home is the continual message, “You are loved. We care. Always.” Never mind the Nintendo, the Xbox, or the designer shoes – children have been growing up without those for generations. But the one component that has been isolated as supremely important is simply being cherished. The items below are a few examples of how you can decorate your child’s nursery or the room of a young child to send “I love you” as a continuous message every day.
Woodland Grow Chart
In the days when homes were passed from generation to generation, nearly everyone had a door facing where children’s heights were recorded, along with their ages. In these mobile times where families usually rent space, a grow chart is a commemorative item that can be moved from place to place and finally put away as a memento.
Girls Personalized Deer and Flowers Growth Chart
Keep track of the growth of your little princess as she transforms from toddler to school girl and then to teen. The chart is pink and white with a floral pattern at the top, a soft gray background showcases sycamore tree trunks, and a little brown deer crowed with flowers looks out at you.
Pink Llama Pretty Print
An Oopsy Daisy pink llama paper print by Irene Chan is a cute decoration for your little girl’s room wall. A fat, bumbling Llama looks out cheerfully from the picture. It is surrounded by reproductions of traditional stitch work, on a pale pink background. The llama is wearing a traditional saddle blanket.
Framed Picture Set
Suitable for boys or girls, this framed picture set exhorts the viewer to be “Wild and Free,” “Courageous,” and “Brave.” The background pictures respectively are leaves and an arrow, a little fox, and a teepee. This is a wonderful set to encourage children to take chances and to be themselves. It can also go with a native American themed décor.
Stay Clever Little Fox Framed Print
This is a pretty print of an artistic rendering of a mother fox cuddling her little fox by wrapping her tail around the baby. The logo says, “Stay clever Little Fox.” The animals are framed with stylized drawings of grasses and leaves. It’s an excellent message to display above a child’s desk or in an area where he or she will read the words each day.
Bear Hug Print
Commemorating the importance of touch, a big bear gives a little bear a hug in this cute print by Irene Chan from Oopsy Daisy. The background is pictures of traditional tole painting flowers and greenery. It is a reminder that when all else fails, even if it won’t make the Big Bad go away, a hug is an important way to show your love.
Woodland Nursery Decals
Create your own tranquil forest grove with this peel and stick decal set. You can quickly have towering trees, fluttering birds, butterflies and gentle deer gracing your child’s nursery walls. Sweetly stylized, these decals are easy to apply and can be removed without damaging paint. They are an ideal way to personalize a nursery without expensive remodeling.
Brown Bear Rug
Protect your child’s toes from morning chill with this polypropylene area rug. A big, brown bear silhouette dominates the center of the rug, while the outer edge depicts native American patterns and wildlife scenes. It is perfect for young Scouts or even for older children who love the out of doors. Billed as a hearthside rug, but it is not flame resistant.
Deerly Loved Canvas Art
A sweet print of a deer family against a background of sycamore trunks, embellished with the words, “We love you deerly” in script across the top of the canvas. A banner for one child’s name – up to sixteen letters – across the bottom. A charming way to send the message of caring daily.
Woodland Fantasy Toy Chest
Help your child learn responsibility by providing a decorative way to put away toys. The chest also doubles as a seat for younger children. The lid has safety hinges to protect young fingers from harm. The outside is painted with an enchanted forest theme, featuring stylized animals, a green field, and dark green evergreens.
