The Wall is Put to the Test

Mary is craving spring, and even though it's a good five or six weeks till it arrives without further chance of snow here in Ottawa, some sponge stickers caught my optimistic - desperate? - eye on the weekend. Here the children bedeck their construction paper grass with pastel foam tulips and bright red ladybugs. Zach adds a few personal touches with a pen. Storage for the artwork till mummies and daddies arrive has always been a problem, and then I found a great idea in a book, also on the weekend. Cool, huh? The clothes pegs are plastic, in various pastel shades.

And, of course, Zach had to try it out...
Seems it works like a charm!
I am delighted.
p.s. This post was written a week ago. A little more painting has occurred since then. One day I will post final pictures!

How cheerful in the house! Maybe we should all paint our walls with fun murals.

And paper them with grant proposals...

That is so adorable - the art storage is brilliant. I love seeing Zach using the wall - how sweet.

oh Mary -
Lewiscraft is going out of business, so run in and load up on supplies!

I love the storage technique. So many daycares just leave papers lying around still wet with paint that just ends up causing problems, but not Mary- she puts them high on the wall on cool clothespins! I bet the kids love being able to look at all of their work like that.

Zach looks like he's having a good time on the newly repainted wall. Do the other kids join him in playing with cars/airplanes on the wall?
