As you search for ways to instill good study habits in your children at a young age, try decorating their room or rooms in your home with colors and versatile paint ideas that promote mental clarity and overall efficiency. Refrain from painting your child's study space a dark tone - these colors are ungrounded, making it difficult to keep the mind focused on one task. Instead, here are a few ideas for decorating a study space in your home:
* Bright, active and bold colors are thought-provoking and stimulating. They can be any bright or bold shade of your child's favorite color, but the lighter tones elicit stability, allowing children and adults to maintain focus. White and cream colors are also excellent choices for a study room as they support mental clarity.
- Magnetic paint is an up-and-coming favorite for parents and professionals alike. Magnetic paint is just like regular paint, but made with tiny particles of iron dust mixed in. The iron dust allows any surface you paint on to hold a magnet, just like your refrigerator. You can even add a layer of regular paint on top of the magnetic paint to match the surrounding colors in your home. Kids love the freedom of playing with magnets on a large space. Teach your kids the importance of organization using magnetic paint on a wall in your study room.
- Chalkboard paint is another hot item. Painting a wall with chalkboard paint allows kids to draw or write on the wall with chalk and then easily wipe it away with a damp cloth or paper towel. Create a decorative border around the painted area to bring your wall chalkboard to life. This is another great way to teach your children the importance of staying organized, and can also be used for spelling games or creative artwork.
