As you have probably read the twins started kindy this term, they had a lovely start and really enjoyed their first week. However after that things went a little down hill and one by one they came down with bugs and viruses. The second week they didn’t get to kindy at all and only last week did they manage to attend half a day. Luckily everyone is healthy again this week so they are back in full force and determined to come home with some fabulous artwork.

It took a little while but hip daddy finally got out the drill and hung up our four Da Vinci Art Frames, one for every child. I chose the wall next to the dining table because I have no doubt there will be lots of story sharing during dinner and everyone can admire their creations. I think the frames look absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to see all their art on display (of course we will have to wait a few years before baby no.4 can add to the collection).

On the first day of kindy the twins brought home an interesting looking pile of glued papers (miss 4) and a piece of wood with a nail and a strip of cardboard (mister 4), they were very proud of their art and of course we were too. They were however a little disappointed that they didn’t get to make a special painting for the new Art Eater frames so they are definitely on a mission this week. I will make sure to share a photo with you once the frames have been filled.

Da Vinci Art Cabinets are available in White, Black and Cherrywood and come in three different sizes (A2, A3 and A4). You can store up to 50 sheets of paper in your cabinet, that’s a lot of children’s art! Hanging the frames up is very easy, the back of each frame is secured to the wall at the top and bottom so you can safely open the ‘door’ to add, remove or change the art on display without it moving or even coming off the wall.

As promised, here is a little update of our art cabinets in action. The paintings/drawing were a little small for the frame but it still looks absolutely amazing, everyone asks about them when they spot them on the wall!

Finally, some art on display!

Now that school is in full swing again it won’t be long before your little students come home with their first drawings and artworks of the season. Those first ones will proudly hang on your pinboard or fridge and before you know it you can’t see the doors of your fridge anymore. Every single artwork is special in its own way and most parents want to keep as many of those precious artworks as possible. But how to do this in a neat and representable way?

The team at Art Eater has come up with three awesome ways to showcase your kids’ artwork so you can enjoy and admire it for longer. In fact Art Eater is one of the very few Australian retailers selling the fantastic Li’l Davinci Art Cabinets. This clever combination between a cabinet and a photo frame allows you to store up to 50 pages in the one frame and changing the artwork on display as often as you like without any effort.

To add the latest creation to your Li’l Davinci Art Cabinet you simply open it from the front and place the new piece in front of the others, close the door and voila, there is a new artwork to admire. The frame is surprisingly thin so it will look very similar to a regular photo frame and is available in several colour options to suit your interior. Depending on what size paper your child works with most, and how much wall space you have, there is choice of A4, A3 and A2 size.

With the twins starting kindy this year I can expect many handmade creations to make their way into our house so I am creating a special wall area to hang up three Li’l Davinci Art Cabinets, one for each child. It’s a great way to show your child you think their work is fantastic and worth looking at, and it looks organised and tidy too! The beautifully made Li’l Davinci Art Cabinets are priced between $65 and $125.
