A tooth fairy pillow is not only a charming idea but it certainly makes life much easier.

11. DIY Simple No-Zipper Throw Pillow

Every once in a while I get a harebrained scheme to recover all of the throw pillows that we own. Which, by the way, is an obscene amount of throw pillows. During the move, at one point we had all of the pillows gathered in one place and it was like a grownup version of a ball pit. You could jump onto it off of the couch and there would be no danger of you ever hitting floor beneath all those pillows. Suffice it to say we’ve downsized.

5. Skyscraper Pillows

Kids will love these skyscraper pillows. I am a big believer in letting kids have a say in how to decorate their rooms…to a point, of course. My one rule with my kids, Oliver, age 6 and Sommer, age 4, is this: no licensed characters on sheets, on the wall, on the rug. Period. I’m cool with My Little Pony t-shirts and Transformer toys, but it’s a big no-no when it comes to decorating. Their minds and obsessions change so frequently and no one wants to spend money on a comforter every time a new animated movie comes out!
