Are you worried your son spends too much time playing video games and doesn’t spend much time doing outdoor activities? Perhaps it is time to approach this issue from another perspective. Have you considered decorating his room using a certain theme? And what is better for a boy than a sports-related theme?
You could try sparking his interest for a sports you know he enjoys. If there isn’t any in particular, go with baseball. There is little chances you’ll fail with this. Start with the sleeping area: cover the bed with a thematic cover. On the walls, place a baseball cap, a bat and, perhaps, even a picture of a famous player.
Do you have space for an armchair in this room? We have the perfect recommendation: an armchair in the shape of a baseball glove and a pouf (or table) in the shape of a baseball. This way, something otherwise common can be transformed into something amazing.
You can use the baseballs as a leitmotif for numerous pieces of furniture. For instance, they could be used as support for a suspended shelf…
…or they could be part of the nightstand lamp.
It depends on your imagination how you can spark your child’s interest for this sport, of for any kind of sport for that matter. However, one thing is clear: the more interesting the objects surrounding him are, the more curious he will be towards this activity. Whether it’s about furniture, paint, decorations or other useful items, it’s worth trying to create a sports themed room for a boy.
