Have a Beautiful Day

I could bore y’all with the origin story of how I got this idea, but I’d rather just get to the good stuff: the sharing!

Look at what I did:

I created the minimalist yet diverse images and quotes to go in our activity tables’ window. The idea is to swap out the quotes every month for an entire year. I also made sure to include the reverse images so that this display could be accessed from the outside as well so that our entire neighborhood can enjoy it:

I printed my designs out on card stock, cut them out, then double-sided taped the mirrored images together. Then I trimmed the edges until they looked a bit cleaner. Finally, I used matte contact paper to adhere them to the window.

Now it’s your turn to share Fred Rogers’ wisdom! Feel free to download and use these images and quotes however you’d like. Clicking on an image will give you the option to download the pdf (or a zip file in the case of the 12 quotes) that contains the original images and the reverse images.

Update: I should have included the font I used in my original post – sorry about that! It’s this one from dafont, and I used a combination of the regular and the swash versions.

As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions you may have. Also, I do love to see how you’re using any of my designs/ideas. Comment here, send me an email, find me on Facebook or Twitter; I’m always thrilled to hear from you!

  1. You’ve gathered such beautiful quotations from a beautiful person. Thank you for these. I don’t work in the Children’s Department anymore, but I’m printing them out to put up at my house. With an almost-3-year-old running around, all of these quotes are such good reminders for us to be patient with others and ourselves–that we are all in the long process of becoming who we might be.

  2. Once again, thank you for being so generous. This short-staffed rural librarian really appreciates you and your amazing ideas!

  3. These are fantastic! I <3 them so much. I'm not only going to use them in the library, I am going to let the kids cut them out to make their own "neighborhood friends" popsicle puppets to tell stories to their grown-ups. Thank you so much for sharing with us.

  4. I have had these saved to my computer since this post, and I FINALLY used these images to make a felt set. We have a felt table in our children’s department, so I have put them out for the kids to play with. Thank you!
