Summer is here! To let your kiddos celebrate this season of warmth and sunshine, why not let them put up some summertime decorations around the house? If you’re not sold on the idea of letting your kids roam free with paint damaging tape or traditional stickers, then check out these printable decorations from us at The Pinless!
I’ve never been one to make collages of any kind, because I really hate glue. I never chose to make a collage for any school projects, and I definitely didn’t decide to make one just for the fun of it. Whether you use liquid glue or a glue stick, the pictures inevitably end up wrinkled and stuck together in ways that they aren’t supposed to be.
If you’re anything like me, you probably have a ton of photos of yourself, your family, and your friends. Just looking at the last four years, I have photos from prom, graduation, graduation parties, multiple seasons of cross country and track, my sister’s prom and graduation, a bridal shower, a wedding, various holidays, and the dozens of instances that I just casually spent time with friends and family. The camera that I got for Christmas already has over 2,000 photos on it, and that isn’t taking into account all of the photos I’ve taken on my phone. The point is, I have a lot of photos. You probably do, too.
As a college student, I’ve moved all of my things in and out of different living spaces several times. I’ve lived in three different dorm rooms, and now I’m (thankfully) in an apartment that will be my home until I graduate. Having to take down all of my posters and other decorations every time I’ve moved has been a real pain, especially since I’ve been unable to use any nails or tacks in the walls. A lot of the things I use to decorate are sentimental to me, too, and the tape I’ve used to hang them has damaged the back of the items or the paint on the wall.
One definite thing about parenting is re-learning how to do everything single-handedly, and sometimes even becoming slightly ambidexterous out of necessity. And while this wall collage wasn’t originally intended to be an example of the single handed use of Pinless Pics, a screaming baby who just wanted to be held halfway through the project ultimately made that determination.
I wanted to make a Valentine’s day collage and ended up with two different versions — the first is a photo collage of Baby D, and the second is a slightly more kid-friendly paper college made from recycled tissue paper. Both were incredibly easy, clean, and kid-friendly, since no messy glue is needed!
At the end of last year, we welcomed a new little person into the Pinless family. Along with her arrival came lots of new ideas as to how we could use the different Pinless products. From keeping her entertained to keeping us sane and somewhat organized, came the creation of #PinlessParenting. Essentially, we’ll be giving you some ideas on how to use Pinless to help with your child’s development or entertainment, as well as some handy household hacks to help busy parents save some time.
