Then we marked the wall at the level we thought the kids drag their hands on it - not hard, just use the trail of dirt on the wall. We knew not to hang frames below that line:
We couldn't reach where the big one would go without getting out the mega-ladder, so we just taped up a piece of cardboard and kept on going....always invite tall people to come help when doing a project like this:
We just started hanging up which ones we thought would be best in whichever spot. No measuring, no level - just winging it.

My 3rd grader: mom, this wall is so awesome - it's just like Hogwarts!!
Trevor: I didn't know we were doing this today... (which is true, I just sprung it on him)
I do plan on putting a letter "B" in that big blue frame on the right, so they won't be completely empty. I even bought the letter, I just can't decide what color it needs to be - thoughts on that?!?!
