‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. Let the age-old story put your young ones to sleep, surrounded by clouds and dreams, on this special night. Christmas morning will be more exciting when your child has the proper atmosphere to float into a deep sleep and awaken refreshed.
Simplicity that is Captivating
A child’s room is the beginning of an adventure that can help form naive minds into what the world holds. Let their imagination guide them on the right course by keeping an uncluttered space, where dreams are allowed to grow. Every child has a a favourite colour that brings out this process. Start with painting their wonderland in a mellow, toned-down version of blue, green, yellow or brown. Stay with duvet sets that blend with this favourite colour, instead of gaudy covers that have distracting values. During the Christmas season, get personal and add simple notes of affection that are wrapped in gift boxes, or present a night time snack of sliced applies and oranges, on a night stand. As the holidays approach, your son or daughter will have the time, and attitude, meant to remind them of the reason for the season.
Ideas for Christmas Bliss
The excitement of the holidays can bring agitation in children, just from being around stressed-out adults. Retreating to a haven that calms and relaxes, can soon soothe that fear. In addition to adding duvet cover sets that call for rest, use the season to awaken minds to the real nature of the holidays. Staying with neutral or subtle colours, add a couple of Christmas reminders to the décor. Hang a simple display of snowflakes, bulbs or stars in a corner, or next to a bed, where ideas and stories, formed by little minds, can change from night to night. Stay away from faces that can take on different shapes, and attitudes, in the middle of the night. A stocking hung on a wall or door, filled with small wrapped gifts, can also bring dreams of Christmas morning.
Too much clutter of toys, electronics, and busy prints, can lead to confusion in some tiny minds. Clear away all the unnecessary items that cloud an already overloaded head, and keep the simple task of the holiday season focused in their dreams.
