One important part of a Montessori environment is making an environment beautiful for the child. This means using child sized furniture, and natural materials. But, it also means hanging art for a child to enjoy at a child's level. While we as adults hang things on our walls, its often too high for a child to actually ponder and enjoy. By hanging art at a level where they can enjoy, it often changes the whole feel of the child's area.
Regularly changing these images can keep children's interest and expose your child to a variety of artists/experiences. But, in reality, purchasing a ton of artwork for your children's spaces is expensive! And time consuming.
But, it doesn't have to be! Wall Calendars! Friends, calendars are often made with high quality, clear images on thick paper. These realistic images are perfect for young children. And, you get 12 images to rotate immediately! The images can be laminated or hung in a cheap frame at child's level.
Farmer's Market; Herb Gardens; Heirloom Harvest; Impressionism; The Flower Recipe; Sierra Club Wilderness; Baby Animals; American Landscape; Nature; On The Farm; Flowers; Insects
I suggest looking for images that are clear and free of text. Realistic images with realistic subjects are best! Fine art images can also add interest and intrigue.
This really is the perfect time to look for a wall calendar or two! Most are being clearanced out right now. So, you really can't beat it!
