Kid's Corner

Children, no matter how small they are, require their physical space too. A space filled with articles and objects that mean to them. Being surrounded by colourful toys, cuddly characters and draperies with kiddy motifs helps them in engaging with their environment. Even babies need external stimulus to awaken their senses. Toys and props like mobiles and rattles are designed with that purpose in mind. It is their first exposure to the sights and sounds of the outside world. This stimulus in the initial years goes a long way in shaping their identities.

In a house full of adult-things with the mother-centric kitchen, father's study and the parent's bedroom, a child's room assures him his rightful place in the family framework.

Not every household may be able to afford a separate room for the baby or a child. Nevertheless, it is definitely a good idea to have a small space exclusively devoted to him. In this kiddy corner, he will feel a sense of belonging. How you design this space or what props you put up there will decide what contours you give to your child's persona. Doing up your child's room can be an interactive and ongoing exercise which can fulfill both, yours and your child's creative urge.

Instead of buying expensive accessories and importing plush furniture and other dècor items from shops, try making them at home. It will serve a dual purpose of involving your child in art and craft, while providing a cheaper option. Why should your child's doddering attempts at painting come to a naught? Why not make a collage out of it or frame it individually and display it? That would be a great way of appreciating his efforts and encouraging him to hone his skills further.

These craft accessories will obviously have a short life and you will need to discard them after a while. This will give you a chance to change the dècor and renovate the room, frequently.
