Each day we talk with our kids about their day. What was great? What was not so great? How can we start tomorrow with a fresh outlook. I wanted to remind them of the words we tend to use when helping them through their struggles and their triumphs.
I have seen versions of this on other blogs and on Pinterest. I love how it reminds us that there are many sides to us and that each and every day we should be proud of who we are. This is a great mantra as the kids leave for school each day and a perfect reminder at the end of the day.
I had the perfect spot for this sign, a small wall right between the kids bedroom doors. It is right at the end of the hallway so it will always serve a reminder as we reflect on our days.
I used a dark gray vinyl and some craft paints I had on hand. After painting my board a creamy white, I used my Silhouette to create the words in a variety of fun fonts to help each word stand out. I placed it on the board, slight off center. This allowed me to add some color with a simple dry-brush technique using blue, green and gray.
I love the reminder for the kids (and for me too - as we all can use a little encouragement).
