Ryan Castillo writes, “Your kid’s art projects are priceless works that you’ll want to keep and display for years to come. Not to mention, they provide timeless memories that you’ll be able to look back on every time you see them. However, sometimes it can be hard to display kid’s art in a way that matches your home’s décor.”
Arts and Bricks’s Together Handprints craft idea is shared as a fun art project idea that looks great in your home and can match your home décor. Don’t forget to get your family handprints turned into vinyl keepsakes, too. For even more art projects that look great displayed in your home, read the full article!

Kelly Barkhurst, the founder of Arts and Bricks, was interviewed for Verywell Family’s Perspectives series, as part of a sampling of diverse families from around the country sharing their favorite Thanksgiving traditions. Read how Kelly and eight other parents celebrate Thanksgiving, including summaries of their own childhood traditions and new traditions that as parents they are now passing down to their children.
Kelly discusses Arts and Bricks’s “26 Days of Thankfulness” project where each day, her family built a letter from the alphabet from LEGO bricks and wrote down what we were thankful for that started with that letter of the alphabet. Her family and online community started at Z and made their way to A, day-by-day! #thanksiving #traditions #legoalphabet

Arts and Bricks’s origin story is included in Tasmiya Sayed’s article 65+ Entrepreneurs Share How They Came up With Business Ideas for Their Online Stores. Get inspired by this collection of founders who “looked at a personal problem from the eyes of an entrepreneur and turned it into an online business.”
“One day, I was looking at these kid-created MOCs and realized that I should make something with them; after all, I am an artist and creator! Then my mind circled back to, it’s almost Christmas, and I need gift ideas, and then, the Aha moment! I’ll take pictures of these cool vehicles and dragons and make wall vinyl. These will be the perfect gift!” — Kelly Barkhurst

Arts and Bricks’s Wall Stickers and Window Cling reviewed by Brickset, a fan site that for over 20 years has ensured that LEGO enthusiasts around the world can keep track of their collection with their ever-growing database of sets.
Megan L writes: “The printing is sharp, and the windows/clings are easy to remove from the backing. This sticker promptly got put on the wall of my LEGO room and has stayed there ever since. . . I learned that you could adjust to the sticker several times and it doesn’t affect how well it sticks to the wall. I moved this sticker around a lot, sometimes after it had been in one place for a month or more. There was never a problem with it staying in its new place. It’s also worth noting that there was no marking or damage to the paint underneath.“

Things That Make People Go Aww wrote a lovely piece from a grandparent’s perspective about Arts and Bricks Wall Stickers in their post, “Cherish Your Child’s Artwork“. They write: “This company will take your child’s artwork or Lego construction and make it into a sticker/decal for them to put up on a wall. How amazing is that? I know every kid loves to display their masterpiece and they also love stickers. Combine the two and you’ve got a winning team.” #wallstickers #legos #stickers #decal #kidsartwork
Life With Kathy featured Arts and Bricks Wall Sticker products in their “Back to School Roundup” blog post. They write:
“Get ready for your home to be inundated with new artwork, handouts, and papers that your child brings home from school by decluttering. Make space on the fridge, wall, or where ever you collect kid’s art by creating a unique gift of your favorite summer art. Turn your favorite summer art into movable wall stickers that your child can use to decorate his/her bedroom, homework area, or play area. A great surprise gift that creates a creative summer keepsake, too.” #backtoschool #guide #wallstickers #gifts #commemoratesummer #artsandcrafts
