Children’s Bathroom | Why I Let My Kids Paint Their Bathroom

My girls LOVE to paint. They would do it 24/7 if I would let them. I do let them paint a lot. They paint mostly outside with every kind of paint-like medium. They also paint at school, in the bath, and on random objects around our home. With all of the painting projects we have had going on at home (Shed and Home in particular) – the girls have been wanting to help. In general, we have in fact allowed the girls to help many times. They take painting very seriously and, as such, do a good job. During spring break, I needed the girls to complete a project that would keep them occupied. So we decided to paint their bathroom. Honestly, I find many children’s bathrooms to be too stuffy and not fun.

Execution – So I let the children pick from paints we had already used in our home. This way, it didn’t cost us any extra money and it matched with the rest of the home. It also allowed me to help the girls pick colors they wanted but that also matched their room. Luckily, my girls are really good painters and did a fantastic job covering the walls. I went thru and cut out the room and rolled thru the top of the room. In the end I was pleasantly surprised that the walls matched their shower curtain, room, and home.

In the end, I am very excited that I got my children’s creative juices flowing. Getting out of your comfort zone isn’t easy – especially when the results will be so permanent! When all was said and done, I am so thrilled with the results and allowing my children to have this awesome opportunity to create. Bathrooms should bring joy to your home and laughter to your life. After all, we do spend many unpleasant hours in the bathroom – you might as well have something fun to look at!
