If you’re like me and you love when kids get creative and crafty, but you hate hoarding all their stuff. I just wanted to let you know how to make the best use of your children’s artwork. It may not make any sense to you but your child’s artwork is precious to them. Making buntings with existing artwork are a great way to engage your child in an extra activity, it will also add to the decor of their room. Your child probably comes home with a different masterpiece everyday, why not get some Ikea frames or from your local charity shop and display them in groups on your child’s bedroom wall or around your home. Just imagine the pride of your child.
I had my nephew the other day, when his mum came to pick him up, I offered her his art work. She said ‘no thanks, I have enough of them.’ I totally understood her. But because I’m ‘crafty’ I immediately thought of ways in which it can be displayed. I therefore took the liberty to share with you all.
I had these frames for some time now. I sprayed them with a bit of copper, for a nice contrast to the black this also allows the artwork to stand out. The sky’s the limit when it comes to displaying your child work, so don’t get too overwhelmed again when the next masterpiece piece comes into the house.
