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!

Tip: Kids Art Bricks For The Garden

By melody_yesterday 228 664

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!
