Do you have a college-bound student this year?? There are so many kids graduating! It is certainly that time of year for it! I have already been to two graduations and another is coming next week! Whoosh!
With graduation, come thoughts of college and new beginnings! I am sure most of the kids are eager to move to college and start their ‘new’ lives leaving parents in tears of sadness (or possibly joy??)…
And though their summer break is just beginning, fall will be here in no time and soon, those graduates will be thinking of decorating their dorms at college! How exciting!
I know when my niece went to college, she went crazy decorating her dorm. The rooms are sooo small, but she really did great with the space she had to work with. She got adorable floral print dorm bedding to go with her wall decor. Oh her dorm looked like a little home!!
One thing my niece did not like, coming out of her dorm room, was some silly-looking residence hall linens staring her straight in the face!
She wanted so badly to take them down and purchase some more flattering ones!! But, they would not let her, it was too funny! She is soo particular about things!
So, when your graduates go off to college, help them make it memorable. There are so many ways to spruce up that tiny dorm room with just about anything. I think homemade things are best.
Maybe a keepsake of you and them at their graduation, framed in a frame that you painted and put together? Or perhaps a collage of your graduate and their friends on graduation day?
Things like that, they will appreciate so much, and when they get homesick (you know they will!!), they can look at what you made for them and hopefully, that will ease the homesickness some. It is always nice to have a good backpack too, to keep everything in!
Do you know someone going to college this year? How will you help them decorate their dorm room?
