Some kids are big on self-expression so why settle for a small table? Give your budding artist all the space they need and watch them fill it with creativity.

Use walls and under the bed for storage space to free up the floor for creativity.

Painting, cutting out, potato prints, beadwork, even sewing. Creative kids like trying things out and they love seeing their work on the wall. Stuck up is good, framed is even better.

Try using frames of different sizes and cluster them together to make a strong impact. Choose a shape (we went for an oval) to make it easier to organise the frames and don’t be afraid to fill it in with other little bits.

Let them be their own interior designer

Creativity doesn’t stop at paper and pens. Find ways to include them in decorating children's room. An ordinary window blinds is simple to personalise using stencils, glitter and glue. Or you can do what we did here by simply cutting out shapes for the sun to stream through.

When inspiration strikes, a roll of paper on the floor lets creative kids think big.
