We know that our kids would rather do anything other than their chores. Hey, we as adults usually feel the same way! You’d think they would have made the definition of chores more uplifting and positive, instead of “an unpleasant, but necessary task.” Instead of, or at least in addition to forcing these unpleasant tasks upon our kids, let’s try to add a little bit of fun and motivation into the mix. Not only for their sake, but also for ours.
Your little guy is turning one! Planning his birthday party has been something you have been thinking about since before you can remember. It doesn’t need to be something ordinary or stereotypical “boy.” Take one of these 5 unique party themes and make it your own!
These days, many kids choose their Halloween costumes based on their favorite t.v. and movie characters. That means that this year, you’ll probably see a lot of Elsas from Frozen, minions from Despicable Me, turtles from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Pirate Jakes from Jake and the Neverland Pirates. So, why not instead turn your child to their favorite books for inspiration? Many of the most beloved children’s book characters have a whole series of books built around them. Therefore, one potential perk of dressing your child as one of these characters is that it might even give them a little motivational boost to try out a newer (or older) book in the series! And–getting your child to read more is always a win-win situation, right?

A modern nursery is one with clean lines, and unique finds. Engaging your baby with artwork that has been chosen just for them is a rewarding task! Choosing colors, themes, subjects and textures that baby can admire and relate to is important when giving them an environment in which to grow and thrive.

Here is a collection of engaging wall art to decorate your modern nursery.
