Tip: Kids Art Bricks For The Garden

Let your kids' or grandkids' art showcase in your garden! Let them each have a brick and a variety of colored chalk and let them decorate the brick. Then, if you like, go over the art piece with paint - going over each line with it's respective color.

They can be as proud of their finished work as you can. What a lovely way to keep you reminded of them when school starts and the beautiful garden days are over again until next year!

Make book ends with them. Cover them in paper or felt or any other material. I was surprised to see this question because I have been thinking of getting me 4 bricks and making me some book-ends. I need 1 set at my desk that I do my bills and other business. I also need one set in my craft room for my craft books. You can also paint them to match a room in your house and date it when you got them. Sit them by a fireplace. Hope this helps!
