Kids' Art Gallery
Kids get a real boost in their feelings of success at school when their work is displayed in classrooms and in their homes. I'm sure you remember how it felt when an adult set aside some wall space for your own projects.
When kids decide which pieces of work are the best or most important (or just their favorite), they learn to evaluate their own work. They learn to see what is amazing in their own work without needing the praise of an adult to know.
I made some spots in my children's room for them to post their own projects. It's easy to do!
ribbon or yarn
All you need to do is nail the nails into the wall and then tie the ribbon or yarn to the nails!
Kids can use the clothes pins to put up their own art. The clothespins make it really easy for kids to rearrange, switch out, and display their own work.
