On the walls you need to draw: how to make wallpaper-coloring pages for children's

Children love to draw on wallpaper. Make this occupation legal! In our master class we will tell you how to make coloring sheets for a children's room yourself in only half an hour. All parents know that the creative impulses of children need to be supported. But if we are talking about drawing on wallpaper, the desire to encourage the child is involuntarily replaced by the desire to properly pour it on him. Only peace! There is a compromise solution from this situation: special wallpaper-coloring. They are ordinary white wallpaper with outline images, which can be colored with colored pencils or markers. However, these wallpapers are not cheap, and even to start repairs in the children's room, even cosmetic, for the sake of the opportunity to draw on the walls is not entirely reasonable. We offer you to make temporary wallpaper-coloring, similar to the famous Frames wallpaper (wallpaper with frames) from Graham & Brown. In order to make such wallpaper, we will need:

  • Matte white self-adhesive paper (removable) in rolls,
  • Black marker,
  • scissors,
  • Ruler,
  • compass.

And, of course, a set of colored felt-tip pens orPencils, which you present the child specifically for drawing on his renewed wall for creativity. Select and mark on the wall an area for pasting temporary wallpaper-colorings. Do not forget that they should be in the reach of the child. Cut out the necessary number of strips from the roll. Lay them on the floor and draw a variety of frames on them using a marker, ruler, compass and imagination. Do not worry too much about the evenness of the lines and the correctness of the proportions: the pictures and should look slightly careless. To encourage the child and let him know that these wallpapers are specially designed for drawing, paint a few frames yourself, before you paste the wallpaper to the wall. Carefully glue the strips of self-adhesive paperto the wall. Do this together: one person peels off the substrate, and the other spreads and presses the paper against the wall. If the roll has a removable mark, the process of pasting wallpaper will be much easier, since you can adjust the location of the stripes. In addition, this type of self-adhesive paper afterwards (when all the pictures are painted) can be easily peeled off the wall without damaging the finish. That's all! Invite the child to the room and enjoy his surprise and delight! And then give him pre-prepared tools for creativity so that he can draw on the walls, without fear of getting scolded. hellowonderful.co
