I have a confession: I’m a complete and total insect-loving mama. I was raised to appreciate the little buggers with wall-to-wall ant farms in my childhood bedroom and fish tanks full of snails in the backyard. Of course this explains why I practically lept from my chair when I saw there was an ant included in National Badger’s quirky series of original wall art.Mother and designer Christine Heinitz has created a vast assortment of animal designs on bold watercolor paper backgrounds, then mounts them on thick plywood. Hang them on your child’s bedroom wall alone or in clusters–instant art installation. If you (or your child) isn’t an insect person,you’re sure to find something you prefer–perhaps an aardvark is more your speed?Not a lot of wall space? No problem. National Badger’s pieces come in sizes great and small, from five inches up to a foot in diameter. Of course I could line an entire wall with just the ants. But that’s me. –Rebecca
