What to do with all those beautiful pictures your little one has been painting?

Of course the 'firsts' and the best should be kept, but we can't put them all in a box to gather dust.

I read about this idea before starting this blog and unfortunately cannot remember who it was that should be credited (sorry). Can I still use the baby brain excuse at 13 months? Technically he would have been 8 months when I read it so surely it must be ok!?

Anyway birthday 'thank yous' required so (sorry for the spoiler as I haven't put them in the post yet) time to glue those pictures onto a blank card?

We didn't have enough paintings either so out came paint, sponges and glitter and had lots of giggles. And some wrestling too - apparently paint is tasty!

So there you have it, a mini Picasso. One tip with three benefits: an activity with your child, a way to keep your home clutter free, and reasonably costed greetings cards. Oh, and very happy recipients too - everyone loves a piece of your little ones creative exploits.


  1. That's so pretty! What a great idea...

  2. Thank you. I just wish I could credit the prson who suggested it. Worked out well though!
