We happen to love cleverness and humor over here at the Family channel. One of my favorite trends are all the periodic tables that have been cropping up. Some of them are, obviously, not family friendly, like the Periodic Table of Beers or Profanity. But some are so cute and clever we think they'd make some pretty fun art for a child's room. We rounded up a selection of periodic table wall art that could decorate a child's room.
• Periodic Table of Typefaces at Scribble on Everything: For the typophile and those hoping to raise typophiles, these wall decals by Cam Wilde "list 100 of the most popular, influential and notorious typefaces today."
• Periodic Table at Land of Nod: Even Land of Nod is getting in on the action with this traditional periodic table of the elements, and their witty note, "(Periodic Chairs not included)."
• THINK Periodic Table Wall Art from Inspirations by Amelia on Etsy: These wall decals spell out "Think," which is kind of perfect in their periodic table style. Also available from this shop are "Fun," "Nap," and "Chocolate."
• Gummy Bear Periodic Table from Kevin Van Aelst: Gummy bears in a periodic table. So, it has no educational value. It's gummy bears!

• Periodic Table 4 Letter Name set at Shannon Zelli on Etsy: Another Etsy seller who has made good use of the periodic table trope, Shannon Zelli offers packs of letters so you can spell out your child's name. She even made up ones for J, Q, and W.
