The room is really starting to roll along now, the draws have changed the look to the Sesame Street vibe I was after. Sesame Street is all about educating the little ones on the Alphabet which is the first stage of reading.
Now yesterday, I have to confess, I thought my two year old might be a genius, turns out she just has a rather dumb mother. I was at a one year old birthday, (happy birthday Zoe) and our friend has just moved into a new home and Madeleine wandered into the nursery, while I'm in there getting her out I notice the wall art, which had the words to, "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star". Madeleine points and starts singing it, my heart shines with pride and I say "Oh my goodness she's reading", I'm already thinking Mensa membership, can she get her medical degree by 12 and become a real life Doogie Houser, T.V. interviews, that I'll modestly admit that she does take after her mother.
While I'm planning her career and what I will wear to the aforementioned interview, I notice all the little stars surrounding, the words. Doh! Thankfully, the only person who heard me was my 10 year old and she knows her Mother may actually be insane.
So for the moment, we will stick with learning the alphabet, here's how I made it.
Hot Glue Gun
Alphabet Flash Cards
First I glued the paint able wall paper onto the board.
Taped it off and painted
Glued the letters on
Framed it and stuck it on the wall
Easy project that has added some color to the walls.
DIY Delight or Disaster? Well I like it, my sister said I should have painted the frames and I know that probably most of you would agree, but I liked the fact the it was plain compared to all the busy colors in the frame. My verdict is a delight, what do you think? Do you agree with my sister that I should have painted the frames?
Thanks for reading,
