Do you want to teach your kid about the finer things in life? Kids are very impressionable and they take after their parents’ behavior, taste, and attitude. If you want your kid to develop a nice taste from earlier stages in life, you should consider taking him with you when you shop for bed linen. Good taste is built from the younger years and it is not only about having nice clothes or matching your shoes with them. It is so much more and it all begins from home – how your house looks, what decorations you choose, how your bathrooms look – do the towels and the shower curtain match, the way you set your bedroom. If you want to teach your child how to shop and to decorate, you can have him shop with you for bed linen.

There is so much you can teach him just by shopping for sheets. Tell him everything you know about linen, explain the benefits of the finer thing in life by showing him good quality Egyptian cotton, teach him about thread count and show him the difference between lower and higher counts – he might be small, but will definitely appreciate the softness of the better quality linen.

After you finish the lesson about the thread counts you can start a fun game of mix and match – your child will have a great variety of colours and patterns to choose from and in the course of the game with your tutoring you can actually build his taste and teach him how to successfully combine colour shades and fabric. You can give him different styles to put up and see how his imagination goes – a floral theme, country style, modern look.

You can tell your kid everything you know about colour, and how different shades make people feel in a different way. Later on you can continue with teaching him about different fabric and make him touch different covers and bed throws and ask him what feels better to him. At the end of your “art project” as we may call this educational shopping you can ask the child what linen he thinks will most fit the decorations of your home and make him put up an entire set. This can turn into a very fun and educational afternoon and teach your kid that shopping can be a fun thing and he will learn how to buy quality things.

You can really develop your child’s imagination and taste for the finer things in life if you shop for bed linen together and he will feel proud to have helped you with the house decorations.
