Decorating a nursery for the first time, redoing a kid’s room with a new theme, or wanting art added to your child’s bedroom? Motivational quotes are always the way to go. If you’re stuck with where to pull inspiration from, how about your kiddo’s favorite Disney characters? Disney-loving families will find the perfect motivational quotes for kids to help keep their focus on the positive side of things while leaning on them as room decor.

To remind your child it’s all about their attitude

A child is never too young to learn how to work out a problem on their own, and it’s never too early to help them have a positive attitude when working through an issue. These Disney characters have the right attitude.

“The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem.” — Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean)

“The only way to get what you want in this world is through hard work.” — Tiana (The Princess and the Frog)

“You control your destiny — you don’t need magic to do it. And there are no magical shortcuts to solving your problems.” — Merida (Brave)

To remind your kid they are the only one of them out there

We all think our child is the most precious creature alive. And while we are all correct, hang one of these quotes in their nursery or bedroom to remind them daily.

“Your identity is your most valuable possession. Protect it.” — Elastigirl (The Incredibles)

“I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.” — Alice (Alice in Wonderland)

To remind them that taking a risk is always worth it

From the first step to the first day of school to the first activity they want to sign up for, every risk your child takes is worth it. Most children love risk-taking anyway, so foster that fearlessness by hanging these quotes up around their room.

If only we all had the courage of a toddler about to jump off the back of the couch, right?

“If you focus on what you left behind, you will never be able to see what lies ahead.” — Gusteau (Ratatouille)

“Venture outside your comfort zone. The rewards are worth it.” — Rapunzel (Tangled)

“It’s up to you how far you’ll go. If you don’t try, you’ll never know.” — Merlin (The Sword in the Stone)

Whatever way you use the quotes is the perfect way to do it. For those who are less artsy, browsing a site for someone else to do the work is just fine. If you want your child to have handmade pieces, those craft stores are waiting for you to bring them to life. For the artistic parents, turn a whole wall into the quote’s theme, add some art from the movie, and center the whole room on it.

These quotes work for any age, any gender, any room theme, and any child. We all want our kids to be more confident and inspired than we were as kids, and having that special quote hanging up where they can see it every day is a good helper to get them there.

7 of the best fast-food items for kids you can feel good about grabbing
Make healthier choices at the drive-thru with these foods
A toddler reaching into a bag of fast food in the car

Let’s face it, fast food isn’t usually synonymous with healthy eating. Grabbing a Happy Meal for a hungry toddler isn’t something most parents like to do often, but sometimes it's necessary. On those race-against-the-clock days when you’re juggling errands, doctor's appointments, and the sacred nap schedule, you may not have the luxury of preparing a meal for your baby at home.

Fortunately, most fast-food restaurants have expanded their menus to include more options than just the standard burgers, fries, sugary sodas, and deep-fried fare that have given them a bad name. Whether you’re on a road trip or just in the middle of a busy afternoon, it is possible to keep your pint-sized passengers satisfied with a quick and affordable drive-thru meal. We've compiled some of the best fast-food options for kids to help you when you're looking for healthier options.

Need to clean out the playroom? This is where you should donate toys
Need help on where to donate toys to tidy up your child's room? We have the local spots to go to first
A child's room that's a bit messy with toys and items all over

Between holidays, birthdays, and "just because" moments, the playroom and kids' bedrooms fill up pretty quickly with all sorts of items. If you want to declutter that toy room and get rid of the things your children no longer play with, donating will teach your kids to help others while letting you see the floor again. Instead of the places that are the usual stops for toy donations near you, try these other places first.
Local Buy Nothing group
If you don't know about your local Buy Nothing group, please look into it. It's a safe place to swap, give away, or ask for items or services completely free of charge. Sure, we'd all like to get a few bucks back from our child's toys, but if you don't want to go through that hassle, this is the best option. You don't even have to leave the house if you're more comfortable with porch pickups in your neighborhood.
Ask hospitals what they could use
Hospitals have tighter rules about what they can take, but it's never a bad idea to ask. The hospital would be the best for when you purchased something, it was the wrong size or item, and now you can't return it. Though items still in the packaging and with tags are always preferred, there are exceptions. Call and ask what your local hospital would take.
Reach out to local day cares/schools
If your children have ever gone to day care, you know how quickly they ask for donations. Day cares are open to more kinds of things, not just toys, so if you need to do a bit of an overhaul in your kids' rooms, ask your local day care facilities. The schools in your area are a great go-to, as well. Teachers always need classroom supplies, and the younger grades would need toys, books, and even clothing for when accidents happen.
Parent groups
Whether you're in a bunch of Facebook groups or are part of a group that meets in person, ask people you already know if they could use some toys your children have outgrown. You have a rapport with these other parents, and if you meet up in person, you could bring the items along and not have to make another stop.

Women's and children's centers in your area
For your donations to make a bigger impact, make sure women's and children's centers are on your list. If you were a struggling parent, you know how much it means to have a place like that to go to when in need. If you're a parent who doesn't have to struggle, pay it forward and count your blessings by donating to one.

Floor beds are trending. Is the hallmark Montessori sleep space for your little one?
Montessori floor beds: What's the point exactly? The answer is super interesting
Children playing in a bedroom.

If you spend time in parenting spaces, you know Montessori is having a moment. Scroll through Instagram and TikTok, and you’ll see thoughtfully designed playrooms with open shelves, minimal wooden playthings (probably from Lovevery), and tons of information on the benefits of toy rotations. The bedrooms each have a floor bed.

For the unfamiliar, a floor bed is exactly what it sounds like: a bed on the floor. Though you’ll find sprawling ones on Etsy with wooden railings, it can be as simple as a firm crib mattress low enough to the ground that a little one can get in and out of on their own.
