Even though I am a grown woman, I am not embarrassed to admit that I am still a big fan of everything Disney. I know for a fact that I am not alone, since I have several friends who are as excited as I am about the new Disney/Pixar animated collaboration entitled Inside Out.
This film is all about our emotions and how they control our lives. There is Joy, who just sparkles throughout the film. She is the primary emotion in 11 year old Riley’s life; that is, until her father moves the family from Minnesota to San Francisco to start his own business. Then Sadness takes over as the dominant emotion as Riley faces the challenges of a entering a new school and making new friends.
In addition to these two emotions, Fear comes to the forefront as Riley begins her new life in a place that is vastly different from the one she left behind. Because she is a an 11 year old girl, the other two emotions, Disgust and Anger, also rise to surface quite often. This puzzles her parents, and even Riley herself. But anyone who has parented a child in this age bracket knows that these two feelings are part of the landscape of these turbulent years.
Another change during the tween years that parents face is that their children want a bedroom makeover. The pretty pink princess curtains or the sports themed comforter set are not what make children on the verge of adolescence happy. They want to pick out their bedding and accessories and have a say in the space that, during these years, they will spending a lot of time in.
As the mother of three, I have personally had to revamp each of my children’s bedrooms. The changes I made were simple, inexpensive, and easy to do. If you child is craving for a change, then creating an Inside Out themed bedroom with these ideas is easy and simple to do.
Why Have a Themed Bedroom?
When children become enamored and attached to a character or to a movie, they want to be surrounded by it. They can relate to the character and her actions and even want to be like her when they dress up in costume and participate in pretend play. Children can be enveloped in this fantasy world when they wake up in the morning, when they play in their rooms and when they go to bed at night.
Because bedding and accessories are relatively inexpensive, the theme can be created on a budget.
Disney Inside Out Bedding Set
This Disney Inside Out “Rainbow Patchwork” Comforter fits a twin sized bed. It is made of polyester, so it is completely machine washable (a must have with children’s bedding sets). Pictures of the characters as well as some of their favorite expressions are a part of the blanket’s design.
It is also reversible, so depending on how your daughter feels. she can have the patchwork side one day and the polka dotted side on another. You can find it here.
Disney Inside Out Wall Stickers
Wall stickers are one of the most innovative ways to decorate a room. No longer are borders and wallpaper the only decorative options for parents. Because these two things are more permanent, they are liable to be on the walls long after children have outgrown them. And when you do remove them, there is no damage to the wall’s surface. It is an ideal low cost accessory for a child’s room or even a playroom or finished basement.
Wall decals are so easy to put on and take off that even children can do it! These are an inexpensive decorating solution for themed bedrooms. All of these choices are under $20.00.
If your child is a fan of this film, there are different options for wall art.
This a package includes 6 wall decals that vary in their measurements. They are available here on Amazon.
Posters as Wall Art
Did you have posters hanging up in your bedroom when you were a child or a teenager? These are another inexpensive decorating option that can instantly update a room and tie into your theme. You can hang them up with sticky tack or put them in a poster frame. Zazzle has many choices. Some feature all of the characters while others feature just one of them. Pick a few to add some style and color to your child’s walls. You can find the one below and more like it here on Zazzle.
