Wish all of you were in the pink of health. *yatta*
Does your kiddy have their private reading room?
As for me, developing interest in learning for baby or toddler do need a bit of creativity.
Pictured yourself staying and spending almost 12 hours in the same dull, creepy, dusty room without any equipment or books for study plus with your parent shouting and screaming at you “Go learn!”, “Why are you so lazy?“, etc.
I wonder how melancholy and misfortune it will be for children whom need to face the above situation (or even worse?).
Please, if you want to change the attitude of your little-bitty, do change your mindset first.
Some of my tips:
- stop decorating your entertainment place or upgraded it
- start your day by setting up a family library or family reading room
- terminate your interest in reading gibberish material
- devoted daily reading time for your baby / toddler ~ 15 minutes per session
In my experience, kid room decoration is the most enjoyable experience and which if done properly brings an air of satisfaction!
Do not give an excuses even thought you only have a small room (same goes to us, we not owned a mansion).
Let us just try our best to take any opportunity to make our kiddies happy. *Insya-Allah*
Besides the fun aspect of remodeling a kid’s room, it is a good and a constructive way for passing time, which helps one bond with the kids.
When you start showing interest in your kid’s interest and talk to them about their likes and dislikes, they become more than happy.
So when you consult your children about decorating their room, they take active interest in the discussion.
More of my tips on designing your kiddy reading / play room:
- Choose 2 or 3 bright (energetic), calm and soothing colors for the wall
- Ensure the room get enough sunshine for lively & refreshing for your kiddy
- Make cleaning timetable for you and your kiddy to dirt-free the room together
- Place comfy & ergonomic chair / table / equipment for your kiddy
- Keep away sharp material from the room (labeled ‘em please!)
Below are some of our home-school room view for year 2008:
I choose Royal Red, Cream and White as the color theme.
My kiddies favorite place~
Toys, art & craft stuffs, kiddies private locker, Red & Cream walls, kiddies books
Kiddies private computer and more toys
Kiddies world map, kiddies bulletin board & art gallery (not yet fill with anything, just finished created ‘em today)
Featured wall *ahaha not yet finished painting, under construction*
I kept all my kiddies drawing / sketches / doodles since their ages of 1 years old for our home-school record (plus my personal interest on their works). *alhamdulillah*
Every time when they completed their artwork, I displayed those at our board of “Art Gallery“, which they could proudly viewed and introduced ‘em to their father (the King!).
After a 2 weeks, I stored it in huge ring files, divided by their own names.

I hope you could get some of the ideas on organizing your sweetie pie favorite place. *cheers*
Do not give up and keep on trying *gambatte ne*
May Allah swt blessed your journey with your family. Amin~
