Create a Wall of Achievement with Picture Frames
|Create a Wall of Achievement with Picture Frames|
As parents, we want to create a loving and healthy environment for our children. We want to ensure that they know how much they are loved and how much we believe in them. What better way to do that than creating a “Wall of Achievement” for your children? Containing everything from school art work to awards and honors, this wall promotes healthy self-esteem by letting them know you believe in them. Having children is certainly one of the best experiences that a person can have and allowing them to see their achievements will have a lasting effect in the years to come.
No matter what age you child may be, you can always start their own personal wall of achievement. Frame items such as pictures in school plays, certificates and awards, or even their Mother’s Day poem that they wrote in school. Here are some other ideas on what to post on this wall: a picture of a nice family dinner you had or photos of your children on the last or first day of school, or highlighting milestones such as the first time they took the bus or the first time they did a new thing. Consider also posting your child’s drawings of their dreams and goals. It goes a long way to show that you value their thoughts.
Select picture frames that provide a unique flair reflecting your child’s personality. Does the item displayed show a formal occasion or a day at the beach? Is your child serious or happy-go-lucky? Whatever the case may be, let your children’s individuality shine through. They’ll be happy that a piece of their heart is proudly displayed in the home! By the way, picture framing their achievements also lets them know how much you value them and what they’ve done.
An easy place to create this picture frame wall of achievement is in your hallways. The expanse of wall space and coziness of this area make it a prime place to display more personal items. On top of that, other siblings will be able to see it as they trot off to their own rooms. Your children will learn to value each other’s skills and talents, thus creating a harmonious effect within your home. You could also create this showcase in their rooms to add a personalized, decorative touch that display each child’s uniqueness.
Update your walls whenever you choose. Using picture frames in your wall of achievement empowers your child to reach for higher limits. The picture frames are a constant reminder of what has already been accomplished and gives them the confidence to reach even further. You’ll soon start to see your children “shooting for the moon”!
Setting up a picture frame wall of achievement is a fun way to get your family interacting with each other. It’s also a great way to get our children talking with us especially in the teen years when they may seem to be drifting farther away. This wall of achievement is also a great way to stay connected and in tune with each other. Have fun creating your personal wall of achievement!
