Do you need art for your kid’s room? Some would argue that it is really unnecessary to do this because a child’s tastes will change as he or she grows. They will in fact, eventually outgrow the art you put on the way. Or you could say that the child may not treat the art well. Some kids have a tendency to write all over things or be destructive with their belongings. Why spend the money on art if your child may not take care of it?
This is where canvas art prints are an excellent choice. Of course you aren’t going to put a nice, original painting on the wall, but canvas art prints are generally rather inexpensive. And if your child does treat it nicely, you can always sell the artwork later on Ebay , Craigslist, via a yardsale, etc. It’s also nice to donate for a tax write-off too.
When looking to select canvas art prints for your child, keep the art simple for really small children, like farm animals if that is the theme of the room. Almost all children love animals. Or maybe it’s something sports themed for boys, or simple flowers for girls. Look for prints that were made in a style that was specifically created for children. Here are some examples from Art.com
Aren’t these cute and colorful! The print of the turtle is only $8.99 on Art.com, so you can see that these prints are also very affordable. At prices like that, it’s okay your child doesn’t want to keep it after a few years. You’ll have gotten your money’s worth, for sure.
The zoo alphabet at the top is really nice two, because instead of just being colorful, it’s educational. It can help kids to recognize letters and animals too. Isn’t it wonderful when art is functional and not just decorative?
Another place to find reasonably priced, but larger canvas art prints for kids is Overstock.com. Overstock has prints that range in price (roughly) from $20 and up, and there was a really good selection. Here are a few examples from Overstock:
The turtle, featured above, was cool because you can make it customized. I also felt like Overstock had better options for girls, such as the hot air balloons. There were several good choices with flowers, butterflys, art with text like “Dream”, etc.
Lastly, you can also check out Amazon.com. Amazon has pretty much anything you could ever want, and you can get free shipping with the right account type.
No matter what prints you choose for your child’s room, don’t forget to let them help pick it out if they are old enough. There room should be a reflection of their likes and interests, and not just those of their parents. Happy shopping!
