I love it when the month of March comes, because I get to add a touch of spring to my childcare facility!
Today I want to share some spring decor ideas with you and some tips on where you can find some great spring related ideas; so that you are inspired to add a touch of spring to your home daycare or childcare center.
Many of my spring decor ideas are discovered when I am out shopping. This past weekend, I was out shopping at Trader Joes and I discovered some gorgeous yellow day lilies. Seeing the day lilies, gave me an idea to add some fresh lilies on the sign-in table. Adding a vase with fresh Spring flowers is a great way to welcome parents into your program.
I Love to browse home and garden magazines to get spring decor ideas. In fact, I make a trip to the local library to purchase old home & garden magazines to spark my creative juices.
Also, I love to stop by the local Nursery to get spring ideas and one of the things that I notice in the home & garden department at the local nursery are “Spring Flags.”
So, every spring, I display a Welcoming Spring flag near the rear entrance of the building; where parents enter the building. (Check out the flag below)
Spring is also a great time to paint your walls. In the Spring of 2011, developed a desire to liven up the walls at my center with a fresh coat of paint. So, my husband and I went to the local home depot to pick out a paint color and I settled on an earth friendly green. Check out the picture that inspired my new wall color and then my new wall color.
I hope that you have been inspired to prepare your childcare business for spring! Where do you get your spring ideas from? Feel free to share your spring decor ideas.
I look forward to sharing more spring ideas with you in upcoming post, be sure to follow my post/ childcare business tips & discussion on Facebook and Twitter.
