Circus Themed Playroom for Granchildren


Hi,

I'm a newbie. I want to create a circus themed playroom/bedroom for my 9 month old grandaughter and my grandson due in July. Does anyone have any ideas or can you direct to some sites. I would really appreciate any input.

Thanks,
Teresa

No clowns...They scare the crap out of me.

You could make plywood cut outs of horses and such to create a carousel (sp?)....merry go round thingy...it might be fun for you to do all the painting.

That's the problem I'm having, some of the things I've are kind of bold and scary, especially for small children. I want to use a softer pallette. Do you know where I could find some patterns or large stencils for the painting and cut outs?

I sure don't. You might be able to look up some pics online, then put them on a cd. Then take the cd to a copy place and have them printed and enlarged.

Get yourself a box of "Barnum's Animal Crackers". Use that for the color scheme.

Think balloons and circus tents. I like finding a great fabric and pulling a motif from the design. It's easier than doing a design and finding that no one ever made a fabric that will work - in which solid colors become the only game in town. You could make it really simple with a plan for adding clowns and other critters later. That way the room can grow with them. If you paint a tent on the wall, you can apply real streamers. If you keep that in mind for anything you approach, the door is open for creativity. I did rainbows and hot air balloons in my nieceling's room (that would be the daughter of a niece) and applied a real 4 inch basket to the wall as the balloon basket, with a bunny in it (she's nuts for bunnies). I did clouds and tropical jungle for a young teen and glued a plush colorful very funny parrot to the ceiling as in flight. It's just enough to catch you by surprise.
