I usually cringe when I let my kids paint and that's because the paint is almost never contained to the paper. In fact, it ends up on everything EXCEPT the paper. And they also don't like using the paint brush. But, a few weeks ago, my 3 year old sat down to do some painting and this time I let her do whatever she liked. She used her hands, mushed all the paint together and that's when I got he idea that we will frame her art work. I found an old frame that we weren't using and when her painting dried, I cut it up to fit the frame and voila! A masterpiece! The next time you and your kids sit down to do some arts and crafts, or if they bring home some great pieces from school, I encourage you to frame it and put it up! Happy crafting!
