The Art Show

What do you do with all your children’s art work?  We have a few ways that we display it around her but most really doesn’t get shown off that much.  On the very last day we were in Idaho, my mom and my kids put on an art show. It’s a great way to show off the kids artwork to family, friends or whoever you want to invite.​

Ry Hard at Work

They worked all day long of different art projects and then displayed them in my mom’s sun room for the family to enjoy after dinner.  The even named their artwork and made signs to accompany their artwork. I thought I’d share some of their work with you.​

Button Art
DP colored a picture and then added buttons.  The girls and Jet added buttons to wooden bees.
Paper Towel Mobiles

My mom showed them how to make mobiles with sticks, ribbon, and paper towels.  They colored the paper towels with markers and then sprayed them with water so the colored would run.  Then they cut the paper towels into pieces and strung them with ribbon onto a stick.​

Marble Painting & Rock Art

DP painted with marble and all the kids painted on rocks.  DP also made his own unique way to display the rocks he collected while on vacation.

So next time your kids need a project or you have a lot of their art lying around, why not put on an art show!

This is fun! Looks like your children have been busy with all their artwork! We did something like this and even passed out little pretend tickets. I didn't think to add titles - maybe next time :)

Lucy, your mom is so creative! I bet the kids had so much fun creating, and I'm sure they were so proud to show off their work!
