Interior decorating toddler style


Our house has more wall space than our last apartment, so I’ve been busy trying to fill it.  When Pete started accumulating some “artwork” recently from his coloring, water-coloring, and finger painting, I thought of a simple way to hang his creations and cover the bare walls at the same time. Better still, the materials for the project cost only a few dollars.

With just a couple of picture hanging nails, a piece of sting, and some clothespins, I have covered walls that hopefully will encourage Pete, and soon John, to create even more “pieces.”  Soon, I will add a second string below the first one to make room for even more.  I imagine that when the string gets full, I’ll take a picture, and then throw-away the dead weight.  Of course, I’ll keep a few special paintings or crafts, but I like to keep things simple and a digital picture is a great way to remember what their art was like when they were little without having to keep so much stuff.
