Children love to read and flip through their favorite books! Create books of their artwork, personalized stories, favorite places, special friends and creative adventures to encourage more reading. Facing the book covers outwards will encourage them to reach for one more again and again since visual images are so compelling. Your little Dr. Seuss will love being published and sitting on the shelf, like Melinda’s book The Three Sisters and Their Magic Shoes.
Kids are often more sophisticated about color than adults realize. Create a bold photo canvas for their room or as a show-and-tell piece that captures their favorite colors and pictures. Allow them to select the photos and design so they can really play around with color. Artwork you create together will ignite creativity and prime their palette for more projects to come.
Kids fall in and out of love with their possessions as quickly as they grow. Preserve these sweet adorations by creating photo collages of favorite toys, interests and phases of life. This is an easy way to honor what they love, display special collections, and fill their room with personalized treasures on a budget.
Giving kids a sense of where they come from and who is in their family is a really powerful gift. I like to use high-quality prints to create a family tree that adds delight and history to any wall. Hang photos of each family member in their correct position on the tree and allow kids to identify everyone. Add updated pictures together from birthdays, vacations, the holidays, and Facebook. Don't forget pets!
