Most kids can hardly contain their excitement once December 1st hits, and who could blame them? It is the season for celebrating Christmas! With all the lights going up around their homes and neighborhoods, Christmas trees getting pulled out from the attics along with ornaments, it is impossible to hide the warm feelings that Christmas brings.
To have the family get together to decorate the tree and the railings is excellent, but one way to help make this month even more remarkable is to pull out kids’ Christmas bed sheets that are only used for this particular month!
For the tradition to be set, these sheets do not necessarily have to be new (of course, there is no problem with brand new ones you have picked out together!). This encourages children to embrace the idea that they have these special Christmas bedding sheets that are theirs only and become excited to help set the bed. It is a great way for parents to bring in chores without making it seem like a grueling task.
Of course, the children do not have to pull the sheets on the corners – have them start with pulling off old pillow covers and putting on the new ones! The act of having them see what they are accomplishing is a positive reinforcement for them to associate making beds as something that is special rather than something that is mundane, like unloading the dishwasher.
This can be a wonderful afternoon activity to do with your kids while you wait for the cookies to bake in the oven – there is absolutely nothing wrong with enjoying some delicious baked goods in brand new sheets!
Lost on ideas of what kind of kids’ Christmas bed sheets would be appealing? Do not worry – below are 10 different ideas that will surprise any kid!
1. Grinch Sheets
He is one of the most famous faces when it comes to Christmas, and who can blame him? It is so sweet watching this grumpy Grinch turn around his feelings about Christmas.
These sheets are sure to bring a laugh to your kids because they can range from comical to more classic sheets where there are squares of characters and symbols from the story, such as Cindy Lou Who, Max, and the Grinch tree! Put on a movie and sit on these sheets – could you imagine a better way to celebrate the start of December?
2. Charlie Brown Sheets
Another very popular character during Christmas, Charlie Brown, is no stranger to the holiday! These sheets bring sweet nostalgic feelings to not only kids but to adults as well! Many people grew up watching or reading A Charlie Brown Christmas, and we are all very familiar with Snoopy, Woodstock, and of course Linus van Pelt and his adorable blue blanket.
It should also be kept in mind that while some of these sheets do celebrate Christmas, there are also some that are winter-themed but do not explicitly depict Christmas, so these sheets can absolutely be used past Christmas!
Of course, Santa would have his own category! This jolly man is the epitome of Christmas – who else is going to shimmy down chimneys to put presents under the tree while sneaking off with a cookie or two? These bedsheets are perfect for kids who practically bounce on Christmas Eve because they are not able to contain their excitement.
These sheets can be more mature with Santa being less cartoonish, or you can absolutely have mad fun and have Christmas words spelled all over the sheets, such as Christmas, Jelly, and Donner (what a way to get the kids to read!)
This red-nosed reindeer is absolutely the most popular of them all! Rudolph may have started out as an outcast, but he certainly made it known that sometimes being different is amazing! This is a great story for kids to learn that everyone is special in their own way, and while they may seem different, it is not at all a bad thing!
These sheets really can reinforce that idea for them and encourage them to dream outside the box and take the risk! It may seem like a scary idea at first trying something different from other kids, but as Rudolph has shown, sometimes those risks are worth it.
So simple and yet so adorable! Penguins are such adorable little animals with their wobble and their squawks. With so many winter
What is fantastic about these particular sheets is their ability to be unisex – there is no absolute gender being singled out, and it makes it great for kids who may want to share their sheets with one another. What a fantastic way to show your kids how sharing is caring, and it also leads them to have new sheets!
We all have dog lovers in our lives, and kids are absolutely the prime example of people who love animals to bits! These bedsheets can either be cartoonish or have some realism set to them – it is all up to how they want their personality to shine! Of course, some of the more popular dogs at the moment include the ever-lovable French bulldog and the long, short-legged dachshund.
Most of these little poppers are dressed up in cute Santa hats, sweaters, and even antlers! If you are a little worried about your little ones asking for a puppy, maybe these bedsheets will soften the blow.
Where there are dog people, there are cat people, and these sheets are for the kids that want to cuddle with kitties all day and every day! There are few things that are sweeter than having a cat come up and cuddle on your lap while you have a wonderful cup of cider in your hand.
Imagine what your children would feel if they had these sheets, a cat, and a nice cup of cocoa while you read them a Christmas story? It would make for wonderful memories in the future, that is for sure! Of course, there are sheets that have cats playing with ornaments as well as cats dressed up with silly clothing such as scarves and hats.
We are not just talking about Frosty here – these sheets have so many snowmen on them. You and your kids could spend hours just figuring out what you would like to name them after pulling the sheets on! Imagine using the backdrop these snowmen are on and creating a beautiful new story that you could both tell one another every night before you tuck them into sleep?
While it may certainly be cold when building snowmen, there is nothing chilled about pulling out these sheets for your kids come the holiday season! Heck, because most of these snowmen do not always have Christmas decorations around them, you can even use these sheets the entire winter!
9. Polar Bears
There are so many things polar bears can do! These white bears are incapable of not looking cute no matter what they do! These kid bedsheets have beautiful polar bears dressed up in sweaters and crowns, while others have them just waving hello or even skating!
These are sure to brighten up any room and bring in Christmas cheer without too much work! Some of these even come with a duvet cover that completes the entire look. Imagine pairing these polar bears and giving your child a matching stocking – it would certainly help with creating an unforgettable Christmas in the house!
There is no doubt a list of Christmas bedsheets without a Disney reference would be incomplete. This appeals to anyone of all ages, and while many people associate Disney with princesses (and there are certainly some cute princess sheets), there are also some Mickey Mouse ones as well as Toy Story!
One of the best things about Disney in the present is the idea that there is no gender that their characters are specifically catered to – if your child, boy or girl, associates with the character, get them the sheets to celebrate their individuality! Let them know that you not only accept them, but you also understand them and want you continually spend time with them no matter what.
No matter what kind of sheets you or your children choose for December, just remember to have fun! The entire month of December should be a celebration of all the hurdles the year has thrown, and the idea of changing sheets at the beginning of the month is a fantastic way to say goodbye to any troubles and hello to a new start!
