Tired Of Drawings On The Walls? 3 Ways To Create Art Space For Your Little Ones Without Ruining Your Walls

If you've got young children, you've probably had your share of accidental drawings on the walls. While those abstract designs do tend to mess up your walls, it's important to remember that artistic expression is a great way to help young children develop not only their talents, but also hand-eye coordination, language, and even emotions. That's why it's so important that young children be provided ample space to express themselves – even if it's on the walls. Luckily, there are ways that you can provide artistic space for your kids without destroying your walls. Here are three simple methods you can use to give your kids room to express themselves.

Use Chalkboard Paint

When it comes to giving your kids artistic space, chalkboard paint is one of the easiest methods you can use. One of the great things about chalkboard paint is that it comes in a wide variety of colors. Not only that, but it can be used to turn just about any surface into a chalkboard for your kids. In fact, you can use chalkboard paint on your walls, your furniture, and even your kitchen appliances. Your kids will love the opportunity to draw beautiful chalk art designs on their bedroom furniture, their walls, and even your refrigerator. You'll even be able to use the refrigerator chalkboard to keep up-to-date on your shopping list.

Hang Dry Erase Boards and Panels

If you've got a small dry erase board hanging somewhere in your home, you know how easy it is to clean up. Now, imagine that ease of cleaning when it comes to your kids artistic expression. Dry erase boards come in a variety of size and shapes, which makes them perfect for any room. Not only that, but you can find full-size dry erase panels that can be hung on the wall, much like wood paneling. Hang them sideways along the bottom half of your hallway to provide ample room for your kids to draw even the largest designs. When they're done drawing, they can wipe it off and start again.

Create Art Paper Panels

If you'd prefer a smaller space for your kids artwork, head to the craft store and pick up a roll of art or craft paper. You can cut off pieces of varying sizes and attach them to empty frames. Hang the frames on the wall at kid-level and let your kids draw beautiful framed artwork for your walls. Replace the paper as often as needed. As an added benefit, once the paper is removed from the frames, you can fold it up and store it as a priceless keepsake.

About Me

While I enjoyed choosing my first home, I enjoyed shopping for furniture even more! I visited several local furniture stores and eventually found pieces that I thought would be a perfect fit for my home appearance-wise. I eagerly waited for the furniture to be delivered the next day and, to my surprise, I realized that the sectional I chose was much too large for my living room and the bed I chose would not fit where I planned to place it in my bedroom. I learned the hard way that furnishing a home requires planning. I soon replaced the items, but made sure I took measurements of my rooms first to make sure the new furniture fit where it belonged. I love furniture so much that I decided to create a blog to share my furniture tips and tricks on! Come back soon for more tips!
