“Good night, sweet dreams, sleep tight little one” (lights off) – What does that familiar sentence even mean to us, moms?! It most likely means cheers to another year of night wake ups.
My 31 months son is still afraid of dark, even more now than before. So, he sleeps with full lights on during the night. And I can’t afford the electricity bills no more (no..not that broke though). I just wanted to introduce him an idea of dim lights. To give him more calm and relaxing feelings before bed and through the night. He had a bed lamp next to his crib, but it does not look like a lamp that he used to know (lamp : lights illuminate from above/ceiling) to him. Thus, bed lamp does not count as a lamp. Duh.
So, I decided to install some 3D lanterns on his room, and hang them on top of his head. (so make sure you don’t use any heavy products which would be dangerous to put on top of children’s head). I am hoping J will take these 3D lanterns a real lamp and he would sleep through the night feeling secure because the lights are still on. Not to brag though, but these DIY LOOKS SUPER COOL! TOP IT UP BECAUSE ITS MONOCHROME. oh yeahhh//
Here are some of the equipments you need:
I involved J during the process too, I let him stick the round labels all around the lantern. Cause kids, they love stickers, don’t they?! Rather than sticking them on the wall, let them make craft with those stickers. Sounds FUN aye. Well, at least it was such a FUN experience for both J and me. That’s my motherhood goal. MAKING LEARNING FUN.
Can’t wait to see the results of our first crafting project together?! Tadaaaaaaa…. cool stuffs under $10. too easy. Decorating your kids room on budget? IT IS TOTALLY POSSIBLE! AND DEFINITELY FUN! Get dirty and clean up later. 😉 Mumma you make things happen.
NOW…It is time to hang them and say a new good night to Jared and his brighter room. To give extra 3D looks, use a nylon wire fishing to hang the lanterns. Place one of them higher than the other if possible. And here’s the finish look. What do you think? I can’t believe it that I would get 2 lanterns for under 10 bucks! Oh that feeling of BARGAINS….make me dance all day long. ^^
See you on our next DIY projects. xx
