Art Display

Encourage your kids to draw more and express their creativity! Install clipboards on one wall of the bedroom. Depending on the color scheme of the room, you may choose to paint the clipboards so that it will match the space. Once done, you can use these to display their finished art projects.

Alphabet Wall

Teach your kids the ABCs in a fun and charming way. Install the letters on the wall and use it to teach your kids the alphabet. To liven up the setup, you can use styrofoam then cover each letter with colorful fabric or paper. You can even paint it with different hues!

Aside from styrofoam, you can also work with papier mache letters.
