Children are naturally open to art and love to express themselves by painting, drawing, and sculpting with clay. They are also fascinated and inspired by the creations of others. Displaying artwork with appealing colors and content can help develop children’s early appreciation of art, and make a house feel like home. The Giggle Guide® looks to the heart of art from several brands that specialize in creations designed to delight and capture children’s imaginations. Our gallery includes engaging works from J. Austin Ryan, Queen of the Trailer Park, Renditions by Reesa, and Green Frog Art.
