When my boys were first learning to use scissors, all they wanted to do was cut paper into hundreds of little pieces over and over again. At first, it was just art in the form of messy piles on the floor. Then they learned to apply glue to paper and their art transitioned from residing on the floor to being heaped on construction paper with an abundance of sticky white paste.
For at least a year, these crazy collages accumulated. Occasionally, we would branch out and do a more structured craft or more often paint masterpieces with our watercolors.
Now the preferred art projects involve either a (very specific) black pen and spiral notebook, or crayons and dinosaur coloring books.
No matter what the medium is or how messy the process of creating the art was, the end result should be displayed with pride. Today on Day 2 Day Joys I’m sharing a simple DIY project for displaying your kids’ art. It’s quick, inexpensive, and an easy way to rotate through projects without creating clutter. Check it out and make one soon!
