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


Children love to paint on the wallpaper.Make it legal! In our master class, we will tell you how to independently make wallpaper-coloring for a children's room in just half an hour. All parents know that the creative impulses of children must be supported. But when it comes to drawing on wallpaper, the desire to encourage the child is involuntarily replaced by the desire to give him a good drink. Only calmness! There is a compromise way out of this situation: special wallpaper-coloring. They are ordinary white wallpaper with contour images that can be colored with colored pencils or felt-tip pens. However, such wallpapers are not cheap, and it is not entirely reasonable to start repairs in the children's room, even if only cosmetic, for the sake of being able to draw on the walls. We suggest you make your own temporary coloring wallpaper similar to the famous Frames wallpaper 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 markers orpencils that you present to your child specifically for drawing on his updated wall for creativity. Select and mark on the wall an area to apply temporary painting wallpaper. Do not forget that they must be within the reach of the child. Cut the required number of strips from the roll. Lay them out on the floor and use a marker, ruler, compass and imagination to draw a variety of frames on them. Don't worry too much about straight lines and correct proportions: drawings should look a little sloppy. 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
