Do you have a pre-schooler who loves to paint? Do you have lots of cardboard crafts and paintings that need to be displayed? When children go to playgroup and pre-school, they accumulate a large number of paintings and sometimes it is hard to know what to do with them, especially when the budding artist wants to keep them all. Here are a few suggestions…
Hanging Cardboard Crafts.
We have chosen some string and attached it to two hooks. Choose your hooks according to the type of wall you have. Here we have a painted brick wall and we have glued the hooks to the wall. Make sure the wall is clean, to help the hooks stick better.
Use brightly colored pegs to attach the paintings and cardboard crafts. The pegs can be found at most craft shops or $2 shops.
The paintings can now be proudly displayed for all the see.
Cardboard Craft Wall Collage.
Another way to display a large number of paintings and activities produced by our children is to make up a wall collage.
Here we have used a large mesh or fishing net which is nailed to the wall between the bricks. We then used paper clips to hold the paintings on.
This is an excellent way to display themed stories, as we’ve done here based on creation, and added pictures of animals and trees.
