Even kids these days have their own mind on what they want and sometimes parents get exasperated bringing in their ideas that simply do not fit their kids taste. So for you to get a glimpse of what’s hot and what’s not with your kids, here they are…
World of Enchantment
Children these days are easily captivated by the characters seen in movies like “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” or by Bella and Jacob of the “Twilight” saga; or “Alice in Wonderland” and “Rapunzel.”
They are so much into mystical characters so better be updated and more in tuned with their preferences to better understand them.
Since kids are so much into the world of wonders, they carry the design in the clothes they wear like bedazzled unicorns, owls and huge trees.
Turn your nights enchanting by reading to them the stories from the modern version of fairytales like Thumbellina, Jack and the Beanstalk and Mirror, Mirror.
Turn their choosy taste buds to liking raisins and other dried fruits on their morning cornflakes or add more chocolate chips in their morning granola bars.
