PLAYROOM : Here's a really cute idea. Frame quote bubbles, use a dry erase marker to write funny things your kids say. When you are ready to switch the quotes, have the child take a picture with their quote and make a photo book of quotes.
Not much for taking paint strips, but love this idea.Making "Thank You" notes from Brown Kraft paper, paint sample stips, and a punch-out. use ANY punch.such as heart punch, USE white stamp pad for the words to pop off the brown paper!
Crayon heart wall art - arrange in a heart and melt crayons with a blow dryer. add a picture in the middle to use it as a frame. Okay I've seen the crayon melty thing before but I love the heart/picture frame idea!
