Here are some tips for decorating your cubby house:
After the cubby house is delivered and built to the specs and instructions, the fun really begins, with you and your child as you decorate it. You can decorate the house just as you like and what your child/children usually play. For boys, you can decorate it as a cafe or general store. For girls, you can also do a cafe, a nursery for her baby dolls or a house complete with all the household furniture and appliances. The possibilities are endless. This will also stimulate your creativity in doing crafts and accessorizing the place.
- Make the colors of the house lively and colorfully inviting. Install drapes and curtains for an authentic feel.
- If you are on a budget in decorating the house, apply a little imagination too. Used cardboard boxes are perfect for making kitchen appliances, fixtures and displays.
- Children love the game of shopping - so the general store/minimart is a very popular idea. Make cardboard bottles, food ingredients, meat, eggs, dairy, veggies and fruits as well as other supplies like soaps and cereal boxes and don’t forget the cash register and play money.
- If your budget is large enough, buy wooden or plastic tables and chairs, look at fabric overruns for table covers.
- Another great idea for the cubby house is to create a zone for different games - add a shelf for hanging clothes, mirror, table and chair for dress up, complete with vanity and makeup for authentic dress up games. A game room for boys; furnish it with different game boards, favorite toys, cars and accessories.
- You can also do a schoolhouse for a cubby. Use one side of the cubby house for a black board, put up a shelves or book case for books, crayons, activity supplies, and a table and chair for the teacher.
- An alternative decorating idea is to decorate the cubby house with your child’s favorite cartoon or book character. Look for pillowcases, mats and rugs as well as fabric with characters and decorate the house with these, include battery operated lamps, and other merchandise.
- The possibilities for a theme in decorating the cubby house are endless. Boys are inclined to cars, airplanes and trucks, so why not a garage-shop. The idea of themes is to spark the child’s imagination and pretty soon he or she will take over what to do with what’s in the cubby house.
- On the exterior of the cubby house, put potted plants on the side; your child can take care of and water them.
- The idea of a cubby house is to create a space for your child that will nurture imaginative play, in a comfortable and relaxed environment that he or she can call her own. It’s also good to encourage and even give the child the responsibility of organizing and cleaning up the best way he or she can and maybe next time, he or she can re-decorate the house.
