10 Themed Bedrooms for Kids
Parents, roll up your sleeves. A combination of creative thinking and a little elbow grease can transform your child's room from a boring box into a stimulating sanctuary. These rooms are as much fun to decorate as they are to live in.

Parents can decorate and educate by displaying a series of maps showing the nation's acquisition of the Western states, and take the opportunity to talk with older children about the plight of the Native Americans during the Western movement. Native American symbols on the teepee can be carried as a theme throughout the room, as well: paint them as a border or hang artistic representations as stand-alone art pieces.
If a child's love of the Old West is more about mares and less about manifest destiny, saddle up the room with horseback riding accessories. An equine-loving child will have a galloping good time decorating with horseshoes, cowboy boots or even a saddle chair. Brighten up the room with colorful bandana-patterned lamp shades or sheets to add a burst of color while staying true to the horse-loving theme.
