If only you could grant your child’s wish and bring him to the zoo every single day. That would be swell, right? Every time your sweet little one sees animals on TV, he gets all excited and recalls his exciting time visiting live animals in their “home” in the city. You in the meantime, relish the look of giddiness on your child’s face. I have good news for you…you can bring the zoo to your home, right to your child’s bedroom, playroom or whatever spare room you have. His very own animal place!
Start by removing all things from the room for the paint job. Paint the walls in sky blue for an outdoor scene and add some paintworks of trees, clouds and flowers. Images of animals, the big ones the better, can fill the wall space too.
For the next step, cut lengths of black garden hose, while your paint is drying. The lengths should be long enough to run floor to ceiling. After the paint has dried you will mount these to the wall loosely. This can be done with a strong double sided tape or heavy duty glue. Now select small stuffed animals to place between the make shift bars. When introducing the animals to their new home be sure that they do not make the bars bulge or bend. Once all of your fixtures are in place, secure all of your attachments by adding screws. This will complete your walls, but you must add other touches to really give a zoo like feel to your room.
An area rug with an animal print will add to the zoo-like atmosphere of the room. There are also area rugs for children with various patterns and colors, and animal designs are one of the most popular among kids. It will be like looking at colorful animal pictures in a book. Decorating with an area rug also comes with the functionality of a sturdy floor covering that will shield the floor from stains and scratches. Don’t worry about the stains going to the rug because they are very easy to clean. A simple wash or vacuum and a rug will look brand new. Your child will also have a more comfortable time playing on the floor with a soft, plush rug.
Area rugs can protect the floor from scratches and other damages, especially if the flooring is made of hardwood. No matter how playful your child is, a simple vacuum or wash can free the rug of dirt or stain. Area rugs are less of a hassle to maintain than carpeting.
Retreating to a room full of your child’s favorite things in the world will surely make him happy. Let’s just hope that he won’t get overly excited that he would no longer take his naps or worse, delay his early bedtime. He might end up wanting to play all the time with his animal friends in their very own zoo. Ah, a zookeeper with his beloved pets.
