Framing your child’s art

by April 2, 2012 in Projects and Activities

Everyone likes to decorate their walls with meaningful art. Art that reflects their taste and style.

Have you ever considered using your child’s art as ‘art’? My wall is full of art by my son and I love to look at all the lovely drawings and paintings he has created, some for me some for his dad and some just for simple, happy smiles for all who visit us from near and far.

Art never seizes to give happiness and pleasure, no matter who created it. Your child will feel so great, so very important if you start ‘collecting’ his art. You can get it framed in various colors complementing the drawings. Some black and white sketches look best with black frames. When my son was very little, he had a fascination for airplanes, he drew all shapes and sizes. I got them all framed in black, tiny frames that looked awesome when all put together. Consider using bright frames, like red…but keep it thin, so that it looks more like an ‘outline’ than a frame.

Each time I look at my wall, well…his wall…it brings back fond memories, his tiny voice fills my ears…for all the zillion reasons he made what he made. I especially love the flowers he made just for me. They will always bring me oodles of bliss…

I highly recommend framing your child’s art. You will love it. And imagine how much it will boost his self esteem. Your little artist needs a wall of his own! Go ahead, give him one…maybe two…why not?
