Tip of the Week

Looking for a new way to display those over sized artworks your child does at school? Trim them all to the same size, then take them to your local craft store and have them laminated. Now you have decorative placemats and the best part is clean up is a cinch! You can have your child make you ones for all seasons. Your child will love having their masterpiece on display and you’ll have a place to put them. Even better when they are laminated they are helped to be preserved from the acid from our hands.

You can also display their artwork in picture frames. Just buy ones where the backs don't have those push down prongs that way you can switch them out easily.

Another idea is hang plastic string or fishing string across the wall in their playroom or bedroom. Use cloth pins to clip their artwork to it. This way makes it easy to switch out old works of art for new. Great way to disply their favorite photos too. My girls love being able to look at their artwork spread across the room. When Miss A gets home from pre-k with her newest creation she always asks me to hang it up. Of course proud Mommy always does:)

*Make sure child is old enough and this is hung high enough to ensure your child will not harm themselves by swallowing small pieces.
