Consider These Christmas Goodies
Why decorate a kids room?
The main question here is why decorate a kids room? As adults we are the ones that make the decisions about the décor. We, as adults, choose the colors, theme, and more. Allowing kids to decorate their room will build their creativity and give them a choice.
What to use when decorating a kids’ room for the holidays?
A big question is, what type of decorations to use when decorating a kids room for Christmas. You’ll want to keep a few things in mind when decorating a kids room
Some bedrooms might be short on space so going all out might not be possible. If your children share a room there will be some compromising that might have to happen.
It’s also important to set and stick to a budget when decorating a kids room. You may not want to go all out especially since their taste will change from year to year.
Tips for different ages
When it comes to the age of your child you’ll want to keep a few things in mind:
Keep things really simple and minimal. Use cloth/felt and other items that aren’t choking hazards.
Continue to keep things simple. Children at this age might have a hard time sleeping with a lot of things going on. Use unbreakable decorations because accidents happen.
Allow them to have more of a say of what goes into their room.
They should have enough of an eye and an opinion so allow them to make the choices. However, be firm with the budget. This can be a really good money lesson for them.
How to get them involved
Getting them involved is key. Allow them to choose the decorations and allow them to choose where items will go. Depending on the age they’ll still need help putting the decorations up.

Kids can decorate their bedroom windows in a variety of ways. Sticking up paper snowflakes they have cut out or using Christmas themed window clings, like snowmen or snowflakes. They could also take holiday-themed stencils, available at any craft store, place them on the window, spray the cutout area with spray snow and then peel away the stencil to see the snowy image.
Using Garlands and Lights in Kids Rooms
String indoor mini lights (make sure they are for indoor use and LED so they use less energy) or novelty lights around their windows or from one corner to another. Amazon has novelty lights such as pinecones and snowmen that would be fun. This is best for older kids who know not to touch the lights or the sockets, and it would probably be best not to leave the lights on all night.
String garland made of paper snowflakes, snowmen, candy canes, or felt gingerbread men across the room. These are garlands kids can make themselves. Make sure the lights or garlands are strung safely. This way kids cannot entangle themselves, and that the lights are not touching anything that could be flammable.
A Child’s Own Christmas Tree
Give kids their own small tree for their room – just an artificial three-foot tree. This is a great place for them to hang all the Christmas ornaments and crafts that they have made over the years. These trees are usually under $30. Artificial trees now come in a variety of colors such as hot pink, blue, purple, silver, and lime green so it is easy to find a color to match their room. To further coordinate, only purchase ornaments in the same color as the tree.
Other Kids’ Christmas Décor
There are other Christmas décor objects for a kid’s room. Decorations like wooden nutcrackers, kid-themed snow globes, and advent calendars are simple to find and add to their rooms. Christmas card holders, or music boxes or carousels with a holiday theme are other options you can try.
You can even find a Nutcracker Ballet music box that features three scenes from the ballet with curtains that actually open and close and plays nine songs from the famous ballet.
They could have a nativity scene displayed on their dresser. Playmobil makes one that would be perfect for a child’s room. For a toddler’s room, Fisher-Price has a Little People’s Tree Lighting in Discovery Park and a Little People’s Night Before Christmas, both of which could be used for display purposes.
Hang kid-themed ornaments by ribbons from light fixtures, window sills or bookshelves. For a girl’s room, the Snow Wonders Angel Collection would look nice hanging around the room. For boy’s rooms, hang the Lego holiday ornaments or the Star Wars ornaments will be a huge hit.
There are so many Christmas decorating ideas for a child’s room that are inexpensive and whimsical, plus they will have fun making some of their own.
I hope that you found these decorating ideas inspiring. It’s always fun to see kids light up and get involved with the decorating. It’s never too early to get them involved.
