A Few Ideas on Children’s Nightlights
The first few years of a child’s life are a joy, but they also tend to bring several sleepless nights, especially when kids have problems sleeping due to nightmares and a fear of the dark. You probably remember running to your parents’ room in the middle of the night when you were young, right? One way to help your child get over their fear of the dark is with a nightlight. You can even make them by yourself using old or recycled lighting pieces. Here are a few creative ideas for a nightlight project.
Hanging StarsYou can make a cute, child friendly chandelier for their room. Find a portable lamp with an LED bulb. If it’s too bright, you can actually defuse the light with a thick piece of paper or a cloth. You can also use a bulb that gives off a lower level of lumens. Use paper with a shiny, metal finish on it or something that reflects light and cut out some stars. You can drape these using string or thread and hang the lamp on their bed post.
Light Vines This is the easiest nightlight project you can make on your own. You just need to take out your old holiday lights and drape them over one side of the room’s wall, their window or even on a shelf. If you want to add more lights, check out thrift shops for holiday lights made with energy friendly bulbs like LEDs since these tend to be more study and they last longer.
Shadow Lamp Take an old lampshade and use a bulb with a low light level, cut out some shapes on the lamp cover and watch it make interesting shadows on the wall. Your child will have a lot of fun with the shadow figures while they go to sleep at night. Questions? Comments? Feel free to contact our customer support hotline.
