Well here’s a cool idea…
Turn your child’s writing or drawing into wearable pieces of art. There are some larger companies that do this, but the quality and material used seems to be a bit lower-end than some of the smaller shops that offer this service on Etsy.
(I want to get this done before my own boys get too big to think this is cool.)
Here are some of my favorites:

Gone are the days of sitting in a retirement home playing bridge all day. This group of Granny Graffiti Artists are showing that you can still be a badass over the age of 65. LATA 65 is an art project that hands out spray paint to seniors and allows them to decorate the alleys of Lisbon, Portugal’s neglected neighborhoods.
So far, LATA 65 has brought 100 seniors out to beautify the city.
After watching Banksy’s “Exit Through the Giftshop” with her family, 10-year-old Gracie insisted she was going to be a street artist. Torn between supporting her creativity and passion, and not encouraging vandalism her dad came up with an idea. Together, they started painting rocks that they could leave around town.

Your unborn child can become an artist before even entering the world. Unborn Artists created a kit to help you make a completely unique abstract painting of your baby’s movements. The best part is that the money from the kits goes to SOS Children Villages.

In 2013, Casey Jenkins sent the internet into a fury with her performance art piece title Casting Off My Womb, which quickly became known as Vaginal Knitting when video of her art piece hit Youtube. The piece was met with praise, criticism, and a whole lot of angry, cruel comments.
There were thousands and thousands of comments, which were largely negative but also highly repetitive.
Artist Sarah Levy painted a portrait of Donald Trump using nothing but her menstrual blood. And just to nail her point home she used a tampon as a paint brush. The reasoning behind it is not as far out there as it may sound at first glance.
You may remember that after the Republican Debate a few weeks back ‘The Donald’ made some weird comments about moderator, and Fox news host, Megyn Kelly.

Artist Jirka Väätäinen has used his talents in illustration and photo manipulation to re-imagine Disney characters as real life people. It kind of makes you re-think the stories behind the characters when they are more human.

Barbie can be very polarizing, but so can good art. Artist, Catherine Théry re-created famous pieces of art using hand-painted Barbie dolls, usually to replace men. Her goal was to raise questions about beauty, intelligence, and women’s place in society – past and present.
These re-creations were exhibited at Teodora in Paris. The exhibit was titled “Not the ones you think”.
