Use Your Child's Handwriting as Art

One of the best things about watching kids learn to write is seeing their handwriting develop over time. From backwards letters to the shaky, squiggly lines to the ridiculously large letters, it's pretty much all cute to a parent. It would be nice to save a memento of that time in your child's development, and even better if you can turn it into DIY art.

Becky Higgins of Project Life did just that. Around age 5, she has her kids write out the entire alphabet as a record of that stage in their development.
