I was thinking of having my kids paint art for my bathroom- how to do it cheap?
They are only 5 and 1 so I’m just going to give them the colors I want and see what happens. Can they paint on regular paper and I can just buy frames??
I, too, allowed my children to imprint a wall with paint dipped hands. They did it once a year on their birthday when they were toddlers so we could see how their hands grew. I painted one wall white and they used red, green, yellow and blue paint. The rest of the room had the same color wallpaper in thin stripes one inch apart. It was really cool and something they always remember. I have since cut a chunk of that sheet rock out of the wall and framed it when we redecorated.
Anyway, to answer your question. I would go out and get some nice frames and paint them whatever color(s) you like. Have your kids artwork in the frames and you can then change it out as they grow. Or have them do holiday drawings to swap out during holidays. You could buy a cotton shower curtain and have them use fabric paint for a whimsical shower curtain. Or, on the back of the door, have one child stand leaning up against the door and trace his body with a colored sharpie. Then, have another child stand there, and trace his body with another color, overlapping or standing to the side of the first child’s outline. Or, do that on the shower curtain.
These ideas are very inexpensive and so much fun. They will always remember how their mom was so cool to let them be part of decorating in such a fun way. Oh, if you remember, take photos of them doing the artwork/painting/tracing so the fun time stays vivid in their memory. Good Luck and Enjoy!!.
