March is Youth Art Month and Our Fine Arts Festival

Finally, my 1st grader can help with the matting of projects! Yippee! Now they are drying on the floor in the basement. Just thought I would share my excitement with you!



  1. Wow! Never before has a basement floor looked so fabulous! :)

  2. I thought I was the only crazy person who brought home all the art work to matte in the basement! Guess there's not an easier way. . . unless you get yourself a first grader to help:) Good work mom.

  3. Just curious what you use to mat the work!?!? I NEED an easier way. :)

  4. Construction Paper Tru Ray. I cut all projects down a 1/2 inch. 12 x18 is 11.5 x 17.5. The background paper is 12 x 18. I glue them down with basic glue- Elmers.

  5. I love these -- think I might try this with my kindergarteners. Thanks!
    Wow! Just noticed that I'm your 300th follower! Seems like a kind of milestone!!
