  • When to move child from toddler bed to single bed

    Is it time to move from a toddler bed to single bed?

    The transition from toddler bed to single bed is probably harder for the parents than the child. If we are honest, that small toddler bed represents those early years where our children have needed us the most. However, we can’t keep our kids small forever and there comes a time when you have to move from a toddler bed to single bed.

    When to move your child from a toddler bed to single bed?

    There are a few signs that will tell you when your child is ready to move to a single bed.

    1. Watch their weight Toddlers may look small, but they are growing rapidly. Keep an eye on their weight as most toddler beds are designed to hold up 22kg. Make sure you check this if your toddler has a sudden growth spurt.

    2. Give them room A toddler bed may be long, but they aren’t very wide. Your little one may need more room. Otherwise, they risk falling out of bed more often.

    3. Listen to them It is probably time to move from toddler bed to single bed when your child asks. They may start feeling that their little bed is a bit ‘babyish’ and will want to feel more grown-up.

    4. School starts They really should be out of a toddler bed by the time they start school. Toddler beds are not designed for school kids, so think about making the switch before they begin school.

    How do we make the change?

    Talk to your toddler about the change before it happens. Give them a few weeks notice, so it isn’t a complete surprise. Let them go shopping. There are plenty of stockists of children's single bed in the UK so you can take them on an adventure to choose their perfect bed.

    Think about their bedroom layout. A single bed is larger than a toddler bed; therefore, it will take up more space. There are plenty of cheap single beds with storage that will solve your space problem. If possible, have the bed next to a wall. This means there is less chance of your child falling out of bed. You can also buy guardrails for single beds.

    If you do opt for one of the many cheap single beds with storage on offer, let your child help with the reorganisation of their things. This will give them ownership of their new bed and make it feel more familiar.

    Whenever you decide to do it, make your child feel special. It is an exciting time for them. Why not hold a ‘new bed party’ to celebrate the change or get them a special treat they can store on their new bed? We are sure that they will embrace this new stage of their life.

  • Tips for Homeschooling your children during lockdown

    With schools closed, parents are trying to keep their children entertained. Homeschooling may seem a daunting prospect, but with the right resources and furniture, you can keep children focused on their learning and add some routine to your days.

    Create the right environment

    Your child needs a quiet, well-lit place to work. Ideally, they should be sat at a desk as this will remind them of school. Our Stompa Furniture range has a cabin bed with desk and a high sleeper with desk which ensures that your child has the perfect place to sit and focus.

    Be organised

    Having the right stationery is important. But pens, pencils, scissors, glue and paper can all pile up. To avoid clutter, a high sleeper with desk or cabin bed with desk also has drawers and optional shelves, so there is a place to organise all the equipment your children will need.

    Avoid distractions

    Switch the TV off. Whilst your children are studying, they should switch off electronic devices. They may need to use a laptop or computer, but televisions, radios and MP3 players can all provide unnecessary diversions.

    Stay healthy

    Research has proven that staying hydrated can improve concentration levels. Furthermore, eating healthy snacks will prepare your children for successful learning. Getting a good night’s sleep is also important. You may wish to consider our Stompa Furniture to find a high sleeper with desk and also choose a comfortable mattress to ensure that your child wakes up refreshed and ready to learn.

    Structure days

    Sit down with your child and help them to prioritise tasks. They may be feeling overwhelmed with the range and quantity of work they have been set. Perhaps, draw up a loose timetable. There will be a place to stick it on a cabin bed with desk so they can visually see how their day is organised.

    Have a break

    Don’t forget to include breaks into the day’s routine. Having a cabin bed with desk will allow your child to be able to relax in their bedroom without being surrounded by the clutter of

  • How to keep a normal routine during lockdown

    Our usual lives may be on hold whilst the world is in lockdown, but routine is still essential in helping children maintain some normality in their lives.

    How do I create a routine?

    First of all, be flexible. Plan a schedule that includes both structured activities as well as free time. Some children may even like planning their routine, so get them involved.

    What could this routine look like?

    There is no one perfect way to organise a routine. Each family is different. However, here are some ideas we think could help.

    Keep Moving: Maintaining physical activity is vital in keeping a healthy body and mind. Get your kids up and moving every day. If you don’t have lots of room, think about getting a kids bed with drawers to make sure everything can be tidied away and ensuring there is more floor space. Jumping jacks, yoga stretches, and burpee challenges can all be easily done in a bedroom.

    Get Studying: Schools are providing work and, although you can’t reproduce a classroom, you can provide a great study area for your children to stop and focus on learning. Having a cabin bed with desk means that there can be a designated study area that doesn’t encroach on other spaces.

    Which cabin bed with desk do you recommend?

    Many of our cabin beds come with a pullout desk, meaning that work can be put away at the end of the day. Our midsleeper cabin bed with desk provides a cosy and durable solution to keeping bedrooms practical yet relaxing.

    kids-bed-with-drawers

    Craft Away: With more time to spend with the kids, why not get creative? Getting a cabin bed with desk means that you can help your children find their artistic streak. The desk space will allow them to make rockets out of recycling or necklaces out of pasta. Having a kids bed with drawers ensures that you have a space for them to store their creations.

    Organise your Space: Think about all the clutter your children have accumulated over the last few years. Get them involved in resorting and reorganising their bedrooms. A girls bed with storage is the perfect piece of furniture to organise toys, clothes, and shoes. A cabin bed with a desk also provides lots of storage solutions; more shelving to place books and room to store toy boxes underneath the bed. If you declutter as a family, you will be amazed at how many forgotten toys will be rediscovered.

    Give Each Other Space: Try and fit in some downtime into your daily routine. Let children go to their bedrooms and relax. Having some free time by themselves is important but, to relax properly, they need a calm space. A girls bed with storage or a kids bed with drawers will help keep bedrooms organised and tidy, creating a more inviting place to sit and read or listen to music.

    Keep in Touch: Another use for a cabin bed with desk is to help your children stay in touch with family and friends. A desk to put a laptop on means videoing calling is easier. It also provides a place where they can write letters and postcards, helping them feel more connected to the outside world.

  • Schools Out for Easter

    The Easter holidays provide a break from school work and a chance to refresh before the summer holidays. As parents, you probably think that the kids are forever on a school break and it can be a real challenge to keep your children happy during the holidays. We have put together a mini guide on how to keep your children occupied over the Easter break:

    Easter Education

    Seems as schools out for a few weeks why not bring education home with them. Encouraging your kids to learn about the reason why they are having a break from school will not only help to keep their minds active but will provide them with relevant knowledge. Keep it simple if the children are younger and explain that Easter isn’t just about receiving chocolate eggs but symbolises the rebirth of Jesus. Easter is normally explained to children in school prior to the holidays, so you could also use this time to ask them what they have learned.

    The Easter Bunny

    Easter is also related to the rebirth of life in spring and is symbolised by the rabbit or more famously, the ‘Easter Bunny.’ The first story of the bunny dates back to 1680s and legend has it that he lays, decorates and hides eggs as they are a symbol of new life. The peak time for Easter egg eating is on Sunday morning where children (and adults) can enjoy chocolate for breakfast!

    Why not also make some spiced hot cross buns with the little ones? Sharing a hot cross bun with someone is supposed to ensure friendship throughout the coming year, encourage them to make them at sleepovers or with you on Sunday afternoon to keep them happy and engaged!

    Arts and Crafts

    Easter bonnets are more than just an excuse to attach the world’s most colourful hat to your child’s head for school (miniature chicks included). They are designed as a throwback to the days when people denied themselves the pleasure of wearing finery for the duration of Lent. We don’t think your child will have any trouble giving up their bonnets for Lent, but you can encourage them to give up their electronic devices and swap them for books or sweets could also be an option.

    Easter Decorating

    Whilst the kids are off school it isn’t just an opportunity to decorate Easter hats, but the time can also be used to spruce up their bedrooms ready for spring! Let your little ones help out with the decorating and restyling of their room whether it’s a full makeover or a little revamp.

  • Spring is Almost Upon us – How to Get your Child’s Bedroom Ready!

    On 20th March we said goodbye to winter and hello to spring; the great thing about spring is the fact we are only one season away from summer but not only that it’s beautiful to see the trees and flowers starting to blossom again. At this time of year, it’s when we all start getting the tools and paint brushes out to attempt some DIY… if this year you’re focusing on the kid's bedrooms our cabin bed range from Julian Bowen is a great place to start for some inspiration.

    The little ones will get all excited knowing they’re getting their room decorated and no doubt have some crazy ideas for colours and themes which we all know if we went ahead with they’d be bored of it within a matter of weeks!

    Whether you’re doing the kids room because it needs a freshen up or because they’ve grown out of the current decor our Julian Bowen range has plenty of items to choose from; from a Julian Bowen Midsleeper, to chairs, chest of drawers and bookcases.Let your decor ideas blossom this spring

    This time of year it’s good to splash some colour and bring the bright vibes to life. Pastel colours are always a winner in our eyes, they’re neutral colours which can be suitable for all year round and of course, they’re not anything too bright and luminous that are going to give you a constant headache when cleaning the kid's rooms.

    If you’re looking to keep the walls a basic colour why not look at having one feature wall with gorgeous floral paintings, this way the spring and summer season will always be present in your life so when the weather does get miserable outside your children will still have something to brighten their mood and will be happy to play inside.

    By sticking to neutral, tame colours accessorising the room is easy, our Julian Bowen range includes a lot of whites, light greys and wood which will all go perfectly with your kiddies calm decorated room.

    A Julian Bowen Cabin Bed for their Sleepy Heads

     Before decorating your kid's room you’ve got to face the task of emptying it out first and that’s when you will realise how much stuff they have!

    After lumping all the toys, shoes, clothes and books out of the way we guarantee the realisation will start sinking in as to where all of this will then go once the room is decorated. That’s where our cabin bed range can come in useful, not only does it provide a luxurious bed for the little ones but they come with plenty of built-in storage. If you find one of our cabin beds isn’t exactly what you’re looking for then our Julian Bowen Midsleeper might be the ideal alternative.

    Although it doesn’t come with built-in drawers it does have plenty of space under the bed due to it being a midsleeper, this way you’ve got space to fill with drawers and storage units which you can choose.Be Spring Ready with Children’s Bed Shop

     Getting the kids room ready for spring doesn’t always mean having to decorate the whole room, you can make some smaller changes which will still have a huge effect on the room.

    From new bedding to twinkle lights, little features like this will brighten up the room; and who doesn’t love fresh bedding?

    Whether you are opting for a new Julian Bowen Midsleeper or cabin bed or just going for the smaller features to update the room we’re here to help with our expert tips and guidance.

    Accompany the breakfast in bed with a fresh glass of orange juice or if you want to step it up a notch how about a mimosa, it’s only Mother’s Day once a year, it’s the perfect excuse for a cheeky bit of fizz in the morning. Don’t forget some beautiful flowers to add the finishing touches to the breakfast (maybe avoid picking mum’s freshly planted flowers in the garden though!)

    You can celebrate as a family by doing something fun but most importantly together, whether it’s bowling, cinema, a walk in the park or a lazy couch day watching all your favourite films with plenty of snacks.

    End the day with a candlelit bubble bath, while mum soaks, it’s up to you and dad to make sure she has her peace and quiet; probably a good time to do some bedtime reading!

    A Gift that will Mean the Most

    Buying a gift for someone isn’t about the price tag, a gift with great meaning and sentiment can mean a lot more when you know the person you’ve received it off has really thought about it and put a lot of effort in.

    Some great gift ideas for Mother’s Day could include

      • Baking a cake
      • Personalised photo mugs
      • Handpicked flowers (not from mum’s garden)
      • A family photo frame
      • Her favourite chocolates
      • Handcrafted Mother’s Day Card

    These are just a small few ideas which also don’t come with a big price tag.

    Hopefully, our tips have helped and you can make it the most fabulous Mother’s Day yet, enjoy the little ones being on their best behaviour and treating you like a queen; like we said the day only comes once a year!

  • Ways to Help your Child Unwind Before Bed

    We all live pretty hectic lives in terms of juggling the school run, extra-curricular activities, holding down a job and running a household before tucking the little ones into their highsleeper bed. Often, we push our bodies to their limits cramming too much into our days, which results in us feeling tired and defeated when it comes to bedtime.

    As part of a good night’s rest, it’s important to take some time to unwind and relax before bed and don’t just encourage your children to do this, take some time for yourself too (if there are enough hours left in the day).

    We’ve put together some tips to help your children relax and wind down before bedtime…

    Our top relaxation tips A healthy bedtime routine will help promote a good sleep pattern for your little ones. By implementing relaxing things into a bedtime regime and doing them at the same time each night will aid their sleeping. Try a warm bath before they jump into their PJs (preheated on the radiator, of course) ready for story time. Reading a bedtime story together is also a great way to relax your child before they drift off to sleep. Also, remember to keep lights dim as this will enhance children’s hormones produced in their sleep. Meditation or relaxing breathing exercises are also a useful way to calm the mind before catching those all-important zzz’s.

    Turn off all technology It is always a good idea to limit your child’s use of electronic equipment and screens throughout the day and especially at night time as smartphones, tablets and televisions can affect how quickly a child will fall asleep. Try limiting all screen and electronic devices to before the bedtime routine or at least an hour before they go to sleep.

    Your child's bedroom Again, keeping your child’s bedroom dimly lit or dark is a must when settling them for the night. Making sure their rooms are clean and tidy will also help to declutter the mind and getting them to tidy up can also be a great way to tire them out (win, win). In the warmer months, be sure to keep their rooms well ventilated as a stuffy room can agitate their sleep often making children feel unsettled. Utilising the bedroom space allows for the room to appear lighter and more spacious, invest in a Julian Bowen highsleeper providing you with a comfortable bed and multiple options for storage.

    Tweens also need sleep Tweens tend to enjoy long lie-ins and an even longer time in front of the laptop or TV. Teenagers’ body clocks are set later than children’s, studies actually back your teens in terms of them being able to stay up later. It seems they can also rise later too which is apparent when the alarm goes off for school! Encourage your tweens to refrain from being a tired, miserable adolescent and work on regulating their body clocks. Avoid lie-ins on the weekend and use a family trip as an excuse to reintroduce them to daylight – we’re sure they’ll thank you for it in the long run!

    Hopefully, this post has provided you with some ideas to revamp your current bedtime routine and give your child the chance to unwind before curling up in bed. If you’re looking for a highsleeper bed or any bed for your children’s room take a look at our range of beds here.
