It’s been a long six weeks of half-term holidays with the kids switching off for summer. So we’ve done our homework and selected the six best pieces from H&M Home’s kid’s collection to create an A* environment for the apple of your eye – just in time for the new term.


Print-motif cotton rug, £19.99

Best for: Phonics

Print Motif Cotton Rug   HM

Composed of recycled cotton, this anti-slip rug is a great way to learn the alphabet and learn pounce on those pesky phonics. Patterned with a selection of cute animals and set in a neutral colour palette of white, black, light grey, khaki green and dark orange, the design is versatile enough to fit into most rooms.

And, because it’s machine washable at 30C, simply throw into the jungle of laundry you may have – no special instructions required.

Design tip: Like the Hopscotch-print cotton rug, this too can be hung on a wall. Explore the safari theme and set in a bamboo or wooden frame!

The single duvet cover set in printed, fine-threaded cotton with a thread count of 144 allows your little travellers to explore their dream destinations in comfort.

A three-in-one piece, this hopscotch print cotton rug, encourages child’s play, whilst also introducing colour and numeracy into the bedroom.

The mix of navy, mustard and coral is bang on the everlasting Scandi-trend and, designed with a non-slip backing and made from cotton, the rug will last hours of footfall, whether your little one is playing the traditional primary school pastime, or simply hop-skip-and-jumping out of bed.

Design tip: Hang on a wall as a statement piece to break up bare walls if short on floor space.
