2. Add a little magic. Fill your play space with imaginative items for your wee ones to get excited about. For playroom basics, we recommend educational toys, dolls, and other everyday fun to get started. We also love an element of make-believe, and a play kitchen or teepee is the perfect way to encourage imagination.
3. Make it their own. Be sure to incorporate your child’s interests into the room’s theme. Do you have a little athlete? Try a sports room theme. Also, hang some wall letters to personalize the space – they add a fun element without overpowering the room.
