If you have a little boy, you must have noticed his utter fascination with all things dinosaur.
For some unknown reason (to logical female minds, at least), the massive, ferocious creatures bond instantly with boys of all ages.
While a teenager would be ecstatic to have a Tyrannosaurus tearing through his wall (thankfully it is just a wall decal!), the young ones would probably find the adorable Buddy of Dinosaur Train more to their liking.
If dinosaur toddler bedding is too much for you, just add dinosaur art in the room. As this was the very first theme I had done for my son (at 4 years), I have some simple tips to help you in decorating your kids room.
Ever notice how the crib mobile holder looks like a long necked Brachiosaurus? (Yes, I have suffered through reading tons of dinosaur books to my kids.)
The best way to decide on the color scheme of your boys bedroom is to buy the dinosaur bedding. The colors from the comforter can act as a guide for the wall colors.
Keep the most neutral color in the comforter's palette as your wall color.
A blue or green shade on the wall can be combined with stenciled dinosaur footprints in a deeper shade of the same color.
For a fun twist, paint dinosaur footprints leading under the bed (paint the floor) or into the closet.
This gorgeous 3D Dinosaur Wall Art is definitely a scene-stealer. But if you have budget or space constraints, there are many more dinosaur art and wall decals to choose from.
Keeping the theme limited to dinosaur toddler bedding and some dinosaur artwork keeps the room looking fresh without overdoing the theme.
If you have put up a large mural, remember to keep all the room's accessories neutral. Allow the mural to take center stage.
However, if you decide to limit the dinosaur art on the walls or only have dinosaur toddler bedding, you can accessorize the boys bedrooms with many small items around the room instead.
Add rugs, bookcases, book ends, lamps, clocks or even dinosaur drawer knobs or name plaques in your chosen theme.
Super cute dinosaur decorative pillows or plush toys sitting on the bed will draw the eye to the bed.
Considering a dinosaur nursery? We recommend the adorable Buddy and Tiny from Dinosaur Train. PBS has pillowcases, art, clock and toy caddy in the theme for you to choose from (available at their online shop).
For my kids room, I simply printed a picture of the Dinosaur Train and put it up in a frame purchased from the dollar store! Now that is instant dinosaur art.
