Homeschooling as a Home Decorating Choice

I was going through my old threads on the Well Trained Mind Forum (awesome homeschooling forum) and I came across the pictures of the wall stickers I put up last year (they're still there.)

I put the letters going up the stairs in alphabetical order. This happened around the same time Early Bird was learning his letters and sounds (he knew them all by 26 months) and Builder Boy and he had a lot of fun going up and down the stairs singing the alphabet song. They are the RoomMates Alphabet Peel and Stick Wall Decals. They are re-stickable, can be cleaned and then put back on, relatively durable, and don't take the paint off.

All on his own, for fun, when we got the stickers Builder Boy got out his magnetic letters and matched them up to the letters on the wall. Our rail is magnetic so it worked really well.

At the same time I also got the RoomMates Outer Space Peel & Stick Wall Decals as an incentive to get Builder Boy to go up the ladder on his (then) new bunk bed. He was really into rocket ships and this one came with a lot of them. It also had enough asteroids to make an asteroid belt. Not all of the other brands did (that I saw.) The planets are a really good sized. The sun is bigger than my hand! And the boys had a lot of fun learning the names of the planets and matching the name to the planet sticker.
