Display Your Child’s Art. (3-12-14)


Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:           Art is important for children.

PRACTICE:       Today, think about a way you can easily display your child’s art.

Tell your child about your plan.

Remember to plan for different types of art. Not everything will be able to be put on the refrigerator.

Also remember to plan for having enough space. What will you do over time as the amount of art grows and grows. How will you make room for new art?

Use our comment section to share your ideas with other parents.

Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, MORRIS THE ARTIST.  Read the book to a child in your life each day as a reminder of what you are deciding and practicing that day.

Come back each day for another good parenting decision and how to practice it. (Each day’s activity will also be posted on the Daily Parenting Tips page for easy access.)

  1. My daughter’s St Patricks Day art displayed on the front door in place of a wreath. I also have a poster board size water color painting framed and on the wall in our living room, she was so proud when we put it up!

    • Thank you for sharing. Love the art on the from door instead of a wreath. Children need to know they are important in the family. What a great way to remind them of that every day and to tell the whole world. — Dr. Mom’s Team

    • Mom next door – LOVE your idea of art on the front door! Do you switch it for every holiday? What kinds of things do you put up on the door?

      I hung some of my peanut’s artwork in a frame in the family room and she was tickled, as well. It’s so cool to see your kids proud of something they did, don’t you think?

      • @Peanutsm0m – thank you! Yes i agree it’s very cool to see our kids feel pride in their work. I just started the front door idea, and I plan to swap it out seasonally or with each holiday. I recently made a blog post about the St Patricks Day art project thats on our front door. If you check out my blog you can see a photo of it. It’s a rainbow paper chain with a pot of gold at the bottom. 🌈😀

      • Checked it out – very artistic. Would love to have heard her talk about her “choice” to put a pot of gold at the end and what that meant to her. Art is a great way to see into our children’s minds.
