Creating the Story Book Wall Art
Elaina, a speech-language pathologist based in Sudbury, Ontario, and owner of Chatterbox Family, an online resource which offers tools to help early childhood speech and language development, posted some home library inspiration on Instagram that we just have to share with you!
She took a photo of a page from each of her kids’ favourite books, used Lightroom to make some minor edits for lighting, and then just took a screenshot of the image thumbnails right from her phone’s camera roll to get a single photo collage of all the photos together. She then headed over to our website, uploaded her screenshot, and turned it into a 20”x20” Posterjack Gallery Box.

Children’s Book Art Decor With a Purpose
Elaina says, “The kids look at the pictures and pick which book they want to read. Or they pick a picture and tell the story!” What a fun and creative idea, and it’s a great way to decorate a home library, nursery, kid’s bedroom, or playroom! We also love the cute words Elaina made by gluing colourful pom-poms onto letters. Check out the @chatterbox.family Instagram account to see more projects and activities you can make with your own littles!

- Preserve your kid’s favourite pieces of artwork by turning them into Peel & Stick wall decals. These are fantastic for kids’ rooms because they are inexpensive, do not damage paint or leave holes in the walls, can be applied to nearly any surface, and can be repositioned up to 200 times. They’ll feel quite proud of themselves when their room looks like a miniature art gallery, with them as the featured artist!
