All parents will know, with any child comes an endless supply of art. Kids just love getting creative, which is awesome but, what do you do with the ever-growing pile of artworks? Well I want to share with you a couple of really interesting products that celebrate your child’s creativity.
First we have the Lil Davinci Art Gallery by Dynamic Frames. I LOVE this product! The frames are hinged so that they open at the front, this allows you to constantly change the contents to create an ever evolving gallery wall. Each frame can also store up to 50 pieces of paper, keeping your childs artworks safely stored whilst also clearing space on your kitchen counter. (Everyone has that one section of the kitchen counter that collects paperwork right?!) There are a couple of options in sizes and number of frames to choose from, so please check out their website for all the details.
Now, if there is a drawing that you think is just the coolest, why not immortalize it by having the drawing made into a metal keychain, bookmark or piece of jewellery? Formia Design will take your child’s artwork and transform it into a physical piece made from sterling silver or titanium, how awesome is that!!
Well I couldn’t choose between these two items so here they both are!
Behold the cutest darn pencil holder I’ve ever seen, the wooden pencil hedgehog! How cute is it? It holds 24 pencils which become the wee little hedgehogs spikes and would make an adorable addition to any childs room. I desperately want one of these, but it appears they are currently only sold through Japanese company Rakuten. Anyone out there speak Japanese? I may need your help…
All kids love a pillow fight, but DOIY Design have just upped the anti! How fun are these weapon pillows? What a clever, creative way to evolve the age-old pillow fight. I just know my Mr 5 would go crazy over these! So much fun and only $50 for the set. WINNER! Available in Australia through Shop Until.
Geometric patterns are still a huge trend at the moment with hundreds of beautiful faceted designs on the market.
This week I share with you a few pieces that I think are the pick of the crop, easy to work into your home as individual pieces, without the need to totally overhaul your style.
