Ideas for Decorating a Small Step Stool
Instead of buying a cheap plastic stepstool, how about decorating a wooden stepstool with a hand-painted frog complete with warts? The warts will provide traction for little feet, and they will add character to this easy-to-make stepstool especially for kids. This is one stepstool you will never find in stores.
Begin by drawing the outline of a frog in the center of the stepstool, and keep in mind you do not have be an artist to create a simple painted frog. After drawing the outline, make warts of various sizes using wood filler. Allow the wood filler to dry completely, and paint the wart-covered frog using latex craft paint. After the paint dries, cover it with a coating of clear gloss, and allow the gloss to dry before placing it in the bathroom. The finished stool will be extremely cute and highly original, and your kids will absolutely love it.
Frog-Themed Wall Decals
To complete this frog-themed bathroom for kids, consider adding peel and stick wall decals. Search any major craft store and you will find wall decals of all styles, including frogs and lily pads. Peel and stick wall decals are very easy to apply and even easier to remove, and best of all they can be repositioned if need be. They can be placed around bathroom mirrors, on backsplash tiles, on bathroom cabinetry, or anywhere else that can use a frog or two.
With a few frog trinkets and bathroom accessories the bathroom will be finished. Many discount stores sell frog-themed toothbrush holders, toilet brush holders, wastebaskets, soap pumps, soap dishes, and frog-covered drinking cups. Kids will love this fun and colorful bathroom theme, and they will want to help with the decorating. Chances are they will want to help so much they might even surprise you with a real frog or two in the bath!

Non-Slip Mini Frog Mats
Textured bathtubs provide a little traction when in the shower or bath, but they really do not provide enough to ensure the safety of slippery soap-covered kids. Instead of using a rubber bathmat or a shower mat that will ultimately become moldy underneath, opt for non-slip mini frog mats to embellish the shower or bathtub in a frog-themed bathroom for kids. Search online to find these adorable and easy-to-clean mini mats, or visit local discount stores and you will likely find what you are looking for. Consider buying an extra set to stick on the sides of the bathtub and the shower wall to make the shower area even more decorative and fun for kids.
Hanging Towels Hooks and Hangers for Kids
In a family bathroom the towel racks are typically hung approximately four feet from the floor, but in a bathroom designed and decorated especially for kids they should be within easy reach. Hang a hand towel next to the sink, and if it is not within reach of smaller kids, provide a sturdy stepstool for drying little hands and brushing teeth. Also, smaller kids are unlikely to fold and hang bath towels. Mount towel hooks instead of towel racks and more than likely they will actually be hung up after use.
