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

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