It's easy for parents to get spooked trying to choose the perfect Halloween costumes for their little ones. Between the overwhelming choices (princess or witch? superhero or villain?) to the barrage of opinions from their little boys and ghouls, deciding on the perfect costumes for kids can be, well, tricky. But with a little help from the Happiest Place on Earth, we've conjured up the best Disney Halloween costumes for kids this year. Whether it's her favorite Disney Junior character (you're singing the theme song now, aren't you?) or his beloved Pixar pal, here's some supercalifragilistic inspiration to make your little hero or magical creature's Halloween dreams come true.
As a child, did you pretend to live in a castle by arranging old blankets over the couch and chairs? There was something so fun about sitting underneath mom's old sheets. Now think how much more awesome it would be to actually have a bed that looks like a mini house! Enter the toddler house bed, also known as a Montessori floor bed.
These beds are exactly what they sound like: Picture a house-shaped frame above the mattress, complete with windows, a door and a kitchen (OK, just kidding about the kitchen). But now picture your little angel's precious head resting underneath one of these magical creations.
While this may seem like a cool, new way to sleep, the floor bed concept actually dates back to the early 20th century teaching philosophy called the Montessori Method, which focuses on placing everything a child needs to learn and explore at the child's level. So, by placing their bed on the floor, you give children independence and a chance to learn on their own terms.
Here, we've rounded up some of our favorite toddler house beds that are ready to take up residence in dreamland.
When it comes to nursery trends, it's all about bringing the outdoors in—in the most adorable way of course! Here's what you need to create a cozy and chic woodland nursery for your cuddly little bunny.
Adults are due for some much-needed peace and quiet as the Christmas craze fizzles out. To carve out some precious alone time this winter, design a space that will hold your kids' attention for hours a day. It should be a room that bursts with color and piques curiosity with a strategic variety of learning and play toys. To help you create this space we rounded up 10 playroom staples to help kids battle cabin fever while they're holed up inside on snow days.
It's about that time: Ice, ice baby! There's a chill in the air, the winter months are upon us and ice skating rinks across the country are opening their gates. This, of course, keeps kids busy outside with friends while parents are bustling around buying holiday gifts, readying the house for guests and more. Ice skating is not only a great sport but also one of the best outdoor activities and winter weather pastimes for families. Whether your kid is a beginner or a star athlete, a boy or a girl, a figure skater or a hockey player, or just having fun with friends at the local frozen pond, here are the coolest ice skate styles from Amazon, Target, L.L. Bean and Urban Outfitters that any kid will covet.
