Christian rugs for children are available in a variety of sizes and bright, child-friendly colors and designs. The most common shapes are square, oval and rectangular. These rugs can be used to decorate a child’s room while they also encourage children to want to know more about the stories of the bible. These rugs are designed with bible-related subjects that should peak a child’s interest and encourage questions and prompt discussion about the bible. Some of the designs help children learn their ABCs by using bible events that are coordinated with the letters of the alphabet. The larger rugs are good for use during circle time, which is also known as group time.
For helping children learn they alphabet, some Christian rugs may use Noah’s Ark as a design. Children can learn and have fun while improve their speech and vocabulary by learning the alphabets that are associated with the names of the various animals on Noah’s Ark. Most of these Noah’s Ark alphabet designs feature the ark in the center, filled with Noah and his animals, while they sail to their new location. Some of these rugs have a rainbow, which adds additional bright colors that many children enjoy. The ark is usually surrounded by either the letters of the alphabet or by illustrations of the animals of the ark with their names. When their names are added, the first letter may be highlighted to make it easier for children to know which letter they should be focusing on with each animal. For instance, a picture of a seal would have the letter S highlighted in the name, so children can learn how to pronounce that letter when they see that picture. Other alphabet rugs may just have the letters of the alphabet framing the illustration of Noah’s ark.
Some Christian rugs for children may consist of biblical images with one or more quotes from the bible. Quotes related to children are especially popular. Some of these rugs are alphabet rugs, which means that the letters of the alphabet are added to form a circle around the image or images. Examples of non-alphabet rugs include those that lists some of the stories of the bible. One example would be illustrations of the seven days of creation, complete with numbers, from one to seven, that surround the biblical images. Like the alphabet rugs, these rugs also help children learn about the bible and encourages them to ask questions about the various images and words.
Parents and teachers should look for Christian rugs for children that have stain and soil protection added. This protection should carry a several year guarantee. Soil protection can help the rug release soil to make it easier to remove with a vacuum cleaner. Stain protection offers resistance to most food and beverage stains. This protection should allow liquids to bead up and be easily wiped off. They should also buy rugs that come with lifetime warranties or such things as how the carpet wears, static protection and anti-microbial protection. To maintain the original color for as long as possible, these rugs may feature colorfastness, which allows them to be resistant to discoloration and fading. For safety, these rugs should also be very hard to burn, so buyers should look for rugs that have a hazard rating index of Class 1, which means that these rugs would have to be preheated in order to burn.
The larger Christian rugs for children are good for schools and childcare facilities where there are enough children to form a group to gather around, or sit on, these rugs during story time activities. The smaller versions are good for a child’s bedroom.
