Framing your preschool artwork

The children have been creating all summer and the teachers have been saving a selection of each child’s art for an end of the summer Art Gallery. Part of preparing the artwork for the gallery is framing the art. I took a little look around to see how the children are framing their artwork and here are a few samples I came across…

Craft Sticks

Some of the artwork was framed in colorful craft sticks…

And some were framed in unpainted craft sticks…

Tape

Electric tape was added to give a bright, shiny finish to the edge of the paper plate bubble print…

Construction Paper

This piece of sand art was mounted on a sheet of construction paper with a flair…

This ball painting was mounted on construction paper and accented with a few colorful lids…

Construction paper with a little ribbon and beaded trim…

Streamers

Feathers

Everyone really got into the process of preparing their artwork for the gallery…the frames turned into pieces of art too!

If you are considering what to do with a simple bubble print or ball painting, try mounting it on a piece of construction paper or putting it in a picture frame and you will have a wonderful piece of artwork to display on your wall!

Here is an idea of what else you can do with your child’s artwork from 4 Crazy Kings!

I have 6 colors of masking tape that we sometimes use for framing. I also like to make a shape with the tape on a large sheet of paper on the easel. After the children paint, I cut away the outside paper.

That is an excellent idea! I hadn’t thought of that:)

Beverly I liked your idea. I will try this, too.
