Let Your Baby Decorate the Baby Room

Let Your Baby Decorate the Baby Room

The coming of a new baby into a family is special and exciting with a lot of concerns. One major concern is the baby room.

Aside from the crib, there are a lotto think about: baby clothes, feeding bottles, suitable music, and so on. For parents who have a spare room and the budget, they also create the baby room complete with the new wall painting or wallpaper. For other parents who will have their new baby in their room, they create a corner with a baby ambience.

Sometimes, parents are undecided on what kind of decorations to have in the baby room (or corner) even if they already know the sex of the unborn child. Many times, parents can also be stereotyping when it comes to the color of the room, like pink for a girl and blue for a boy. This can also be a point of argument. So, why not let the baby decorate the baby room?

The following are ideas on how to let your baby do the decision-making and the work on decorating the room, specifically, the wall. These suggestions work for both painted and wallpaper-covered walls.

The constant material that you will need is a canvass sheet. This is the same kind of material that artists use for oil painting. As for the size of the canvass, 12” x 18” is suggested but you can always cut the sheet to your preferred size. Take note, however, that the size is important as explained in #4 below.

1)    While your child is still an infant, be ready with canvass sheets near the crib. Spilt milk, vitamins and medicine, and baby food should find their way to the canvass with your help. Let the stain document that early stage and exhibit it on the wall.

2)    When your child reaches the crawling stage up to the toddler age, let him or her draw on the wall, something that is very interesting for any child. Have your sheets of canvass temporarily fastened to the wall with masking tape. When your child has decided that a sheet is completed, transfer it to a higher part of the wall and put a fresh one to the vacated space.

3)    The stains and drawings on the canvass can be preserved by spraying a fixative (fixatif) which is available at arts and hardware stores. For the stains, make sure it is dry before spraying the fixative. Write the story behind the stain before putting it up on the wall. Printed photos of the child during the spilling and drawing will be great additions.

4)    As mentioned earlier, the size of the canvass is important. This is so because you can put the sheets together to make scrapbooks. Once the wall has no more space for fresh sheets, it is time to put the older finished work of art inside the scrapbook.

As your child grows up, he or she may lose interest in drawing on the canvass sheets but maybe not in going over the scrapbook pages. Your child will even be grateful to you for compiling the treasures for them.
