Supporting my little girl’s love of art doesn’t mean that our refrigerator is covered in kids art or that we have tons of artwork in our keepsake box. Instead, we scan them all from our home printer, and save them to her personal usb drive (so, technically, we can throw them in the recycle bin guilt free and still keep an organized archive). We have also provided some empty frames in the homeschool area for her to hang artwork deemed by her as “special”.
A few weeks ago, she created a special work of art that I knew would make a perfect home decor piece for our family room. I took her geode (rock art) and had it enlarged to 24×36 inches for under $25 at Vivyx Printing, a poster and large format printing company. I loved watching her look of pride when she saw her enlarged art piece hanging up.
Since this won’t be the last piece of art that she creates for our home, I am already starting to get ideas of other ways to incorporate her work. I love the idea of the kids art tea towels shown by Heather of Setting For Four, and the kids art duvet cover made by Jen of A Thousand Words.
