Dear Marc:

I am designing my five year old daughter’s room and I’d like to create something with her to hang on her wall. Any ideas?


Dear Chantelle:

That sounds like an exciting project! Kid’s bedrooms are fun to design as the furnishings are usually very colourful and whimsical. I have the perfect mother-daughter project for this room. It’s a simple DIY that requires very few supplies and offers hours of colouring fun!

Kid’s Art Piece


  • Crayons
  • Black Sharpie
  • Canvas (Size of your Choice)


Step 1:

Have your daughter draw her favourite pictures on a canvas using crayons. Once her drawing is complete, outline the drawing using a black Sharpie.


Step 2:

Hang the canvas on her wall and voila, she has created a custom art piece she will treasure for years.
