Here is what I came up with for my boys' bedroom. Like I said, they both love animals. Brody has moved on from loving animals and is pretty much obsessed with them. In fact, this morning at breakfast he was telling me all about the animals that he was going to fix as an animal doctor when he gets big some day. As a three year old, he can't quite get the word "veterinarian" to come out smoothly. :)
Anyway, he was telling me that he is friends with the lions, tigers, elephants and zebras. He can "fix" those animals. However, the allligators and crocodiles are mad and have sharp teeth so they are going to stay sick. I was doing the dishes while listening to him rattle off his list of fixable animals. Needless to say, I got quite the kick out of it. Tanner (my four yr old) could not be outdone so he proceeded to tell me all about the animals he would be saving from the trees when he is a firefighter. Ah, the innocence of youth!
Back to the boys' bedroom... I got the prints of my animal paintings done so that I could put them up. I have an old book shelf that I wanted to use but didn't really want to fill it all with books or else my boys would be up reading all night instead of sleeping. So, I decided to keep it simple and put their beloved animals in frames and put them in the shelf instead. Here is how they turned out printing them off as 5x7's and then sticking them in 8x10 frames. Fun little safari animals for their room!
