Purpose: Build self-esteem
Materials: string, nails, clothes pins, peg boards, pegs, strong magnets
The success of this tip lies in: letting the kids’ work be part of your decorating
DISPLAY THE WORK: Between two nails put in the wall about a yard (one meter) apart tie a string. Use the clothes pins to clip up the art work or written pieces that your children do. Each kid in our home has a string and they decide what goes up for display. I also have a large peg board by my desk where I hang the things they give to me. We use magnets for the fridge to display items as well.
Another unique idea that we do is a family blog. The authors are all the members of our family on my side: my siblings, my parents, our family, and the kids’ cousins. My kids love putting stories and pictures on the blog so all the family can see.
