Christmas Art for a Playroom


Over Thanksgiving break, I cleaned out closets and the playroom. My kids have outgrown playing with these wooden blocks, so we made a piece of art!

We chose words that applied to Christmas.

I had the canvas from another project and covered it with some linen fabric left over from my dining room project (I'll post soon!) This was a great project to do with my five-year old daughter. While we arranged and glued, she practiced her spelling and sounded out the letters.

Supplies: various blocks, canvas, fabric to cover (optional), staple gun, and a hot glue gun.

This idea was inspired by one I saw in a magazine. No cost...just a little bit of time with my kids and we created some Christmas art! I'll write their ages on the back and will pull it out each Christmas to remember the little hands that played with these blocks!

 Thanks for stopping by!
