Creative Things to Do with Bunk Beds for Little Girls
Use bunk beds to entertain your daughters. (little girls image by Lisa Eastman from

Entertaining little girls requires some imagination from parents. Bunk beds are an excellent way to develop more space in a bedroom, as well as provide a creative outlet for children. Using decorative, innovative designs for bunk beds can make playtime and bedtime enjoyable for little girls. Parents can reconnect with their inner child by observing the interests of their children and then designing a bed accordingly.

Fairy Tale Castle

A range of elaborate fairy tale castle bunk bed designs is available. Create castle towers and medieval arches for a more convincing castle design. A curving staircase to get to the top bunk and a slide on the other side of the beds provide children with the opportunity to create their own adventure before bedtime. The Tanglewood Design website provides some amazing bunk bed creations with fantasy castle themes.

Elephant Ride

For children fascinated by wildlife and animal stories, an elephant bunk bed creation is a fantastic way to promote play and bedtime. With a wrapping trunk to the ground, children can imagine they are on an African safari ride. As shown on the Tanglewood Design website, design an elephant so that stairs to the top bunk are at the base of the beds. If you are looking for more play-focused beds, turn the trunk of the elephant into a slide.

Double-Decker Bus

Parents of girls who enjoy playing with toy cars or role-playing driving cars can design a double-decker bus. This is an inexpensive design that requires red and black paint, and some old plastic steering wheels. Paint the double-decker bus red and add fake wheels on the bottom legs of the bottom bunk. Place a ladder at the back of the beds, and a steering wheel on both the bottom and top bunks so the girls can race against each other. Paint windows and railings onto the bus for a more authentic design.


Design a cheap, entertaining bunk bed using some blue, yellow, green and orange paint. Transform the beds into two mermaids swimming side by side. First paint the bed posts and frame blue. Draw on some yellow and orange fish along the frames and some seaweed coming up from the legs of the bottom bunk. Add some blue and green comforters and pillows once the paint has dried. The girls can role-play and act like mermaids swimming through waves. This design is fitting for a bedroom that has an ocean theme.
