The options are often overwhelming, and sometimes the inspiration just does not strike. As you are contemplating what items to hang from your boy's ceiling, determine what theme you will go with. Once that's established, your options are down to a more manageable size.

Purchase these or get your child involved by painting models. If you couple these ideas with a wall or ceiling mural, you will have a room that is sure to spark your boy's imagination.

Aviation Theme

If your child is fascinated by aviation, you have a myriad of options to hang from his ceiling. If he enjoys military aircraft, all military aircraft have die-cast metal and home-made kits that you can make and hang from his ceiling. You could even hang them in ways to make them look like they are actually in a dogfight. If your boy likes civilian aviation, you can either special order the die-cast replicas of his favourite aircraft or purchase the die-cast versions. You can even purchase ceiling fans that are propellers and ceiling lights that are aeroplanes. You can also incorporate hot air balloons into this theme.
