What you need:
Cakes enjoys art and makes lots at home, school and at any outing that allows it. Anything made at an outing or in a class is hung at her level in her room to spark conversation about what she has been involved in. This works well for all of us as she has a good memory and is able to recall (with visual prompting) great experiences and moments. This meant very few of her masterpieces were displayed for visitors to see. My husband discussed doing this for sometime (he hates any new project I suggest as I have so many unfinished at the moment) and he said if it was cheap and looked good the end of the hallway would be a good place. Now our house has many large Pearljam posters displayed in the hallway and this meant removing it and placing away (people said this would happen once we had children but I didn't believe them) which isn't a problem but felt wasteful. So down it came and the planning started. We initally chose using wooden clipboards spray painted though after much research the cheapest I could get them was $3.18 from Office works and then I would still need to buy paint. My husband liked these the best as we could clip any art on there even if it was 3D or bulky, howevre he was concerned this would become another unfinished project. In the interim I found A4 sized frames at Ikea for $2.49. So not only was I saving money I was saving myself on extra tasks. The plan is to add an art line above the frames at some stage for bulky pieces of art however that is yet to occur. Here is the final product, we are pretty happy with it though I find it hard to demote the art to add new art, maybe I should just get more frames.
