When I was a child I always wanted a cabin bed, or a high sleeper bed, with some kind of secret area underneath. It was my absolute dream, and I can remember walking around the department store looking at fancy beds and thinking of ways I could change them to make them more fun. I never did get the bed I wanted so badly, but it never stopped me dreaming.
These days, I often find myself browsing through Pinterest, and there are some amazing bed creations… Tree house beds, pirate ships, princess castles, lego beds, you name it, I’m sure there is a bed designed like it. I think if you had shown me these beds as a child I would have died in excitement!
Silentnight are asking children to design their ultimate dream bed, and I thought it would be a fun thing to do with the kids. Earlier in the week, ( after a lot of thought about what they would like) armed with a pack of crayons, some blank paper and a lot of imagination, we sat down and started creating!
