I try to do a seasonal display with Amelia once every couple of months. We had Valentines, and more recently we had some spring hand and footprint carrots and flowers up. What with all this hot weather – that is so
Instead of telling the kids “I can’t right now” why not try “Would you like to choose a busy bag?”
This is so simple, and so effective! I stuck masking tape to the canvas to form the letters and then let Amelia go wild with paints and Valentine’s themed glitter and confetti. She stuck the confetti directly onto the wet paint which acted as a glue once the paint dried. Then I peeled off the masking tape to reveal the letters – the paint bled a little bit on the edges of each letter, but I actually think it looks quite cool.
Giving kids an area to display their artwork helps to promote a sense of pride and achievement, and does wonders for their confidence.
