Take a magic carpet ride

A new rug can completely transform the look of your child's room. Not only are they fun and colorful, but they also can be educational. Choose an A-B-C rug for your little learner, or opt for a baseball field rug for your sports enthusiast. Target.com has colorful, fun rugs for kids of all ages, including this 4 x 6-foot pink bear rug for just $11.99.
