Whether your kids are starting preschool or college, these tips can help them manifest a great new school year. Get ready to style and decorate your child’s space for a productive and positive school year!
Get Clean and Organized
Declutter your child’s space and closet before school starts. Clear out toys they no longer play with, items they no longer use, or clothes that don’t fit anymore. If their space is cluttered and disorganized, they’ll feel it too! A room that’s clean, clear and organized creates a harmonious space for restful sleep.
Release the old to create a healthy flow in their space. Organizing by color helps kids get and stay organized, plus makes it fun! By clearing physical clutter, you open pathways for fun learning experiences and new beginnings to enter.
Decorate With Your Child’s Intention
What your child surrounds themselves with in their space has a HUGE impact on their thoughts, feelings, and general well-being. Decorate their space with inspirational room décor, motivational messages, items they love, and colors that promote well-being and tranquility. Incorporate décor of their own artwork, as well as symbols of recognition such as awards, certificates or achievements.
Does your child have a new sport or activity they want to try? A new goal they want to achieve? Decorate their room with symbols of that intention. Incorporating visual symbols of their desired goals in their decorating theme puts them on the right track to achieving them!
Style With Confidence
With Back-to-School season here, it’s the perfect time to rejuvenate your child’s wardrobe. Fill it only with clothing, shoes, and accessories they love and feel confident in. Be sure clothes and shoes fit properly and brighten their mood.
When shopping for Back-to-School clothes, have them help pick their clothing for the school year. On the first day of school, whether they wear a uniform or their own clothes to school, incorporate their favorite color as well as a symbol or accessory of your child’s favorite character or role model.
This will help calm first day jitters and promote a feeling of confidence and assurance that their favorite hero is by their side!
Simple changes in your child’s space and wardrobe can bring wonderful things into their life.
By implementing these styling-with-intention tips, your child will feel positive, motivated and ready for an exciting new school year!
