I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t believe another school year is almost over. I’m ready to welcome summer with open arms and to finally see my kids be free, with no homework, afternoon classes or projects to finish. I’m really excited to enjoy our free time together without having to do anything at all. I know that by the beginning of August, I’ll probably feel different about this, but I’ll cross that bridge later – now I just want school to be over.
During these last weeks, my kids bring home notebooks, books and school supplies they will no longer use at school. And what they bring most is tons of art projects that I have no idea what to do with. I have to confess that most of these works of art end up exactly where you guys are thinking, but I don’t even want to write about it, just in case one of my kids reads this post sometime. Nonetheless, there are some projects that I do want to keep. Normally I just store them in the “Treasure Box” I have assigned for each of my kids. I always wanted to find a way to exhibit them in some way, but hadn’t found a project I was willing to carry through.
After a lot of searching in my beloved Pinterest, I found this original idea that I wanted to share with you this week. It consists of just taking pictures to each of the drawings you want to use; then you print the photos and arrange them on a large frame. Besides being really easy, it’s the perfect decoration for the kids' playroom.
Each year you can update the photos or you can just add frames to your collection. I must say that if you have small children, you should save as much of these art works as you can, because the bigger they get, the least drawings they bring home from school.
Hope you like and find it useful.
