Gymnastics can be enjoyed at the social level or at the competitive level by both young men and young women. Focusing on both personal development and on teamwork, gymnastics is one of the many sports that can help youngsters develop both fitness and camaraderie. Family members can support their gymnast with gifts of gymnastics art, as well as words of encouragement.
The art can come in many forms.
Word Wall Art - Perhaps originating in the classroom with a Kindergarten “word wall” that shows the words students know, gymnastics word wall art includes words that push toward positive self-development. A young gymnast must put in several hours a week practicing and working toward the improvement of form and fitness.
Silhouettes - Whether carved from metal, wood or peel and stick vinyl, a silhouette of an active gymnast demonstrates the art of gymnastics and shows pride in learning an activity that requires physical prowess, coordination and sometimes a sense of timing. Gender neutral silhouettes make excellent decorations for the entry to a gym or similar training facility.
Holiday Ornaments - Show your appreciation of a hard-working gymnast with seasonal ornaments that feature your gymnast’s name, a calendar date and perhaps the name of an event. Holidays are often a time when your gymnast will be busy with shows and demonstrations. A personalized ornament acknowledges that hard work.
Sophisticated Art Works - Degas immortalized ballet dancers; should you do any less for gymnasts? Gymnastics is both a sport and an art-form, combining athleticism with gestures and poses not unlike ballet. Paintings and prints make ideal graduation gifts or decorations for a first apartment, as well as art for a young gymnast’s room at home.
You can make your gymnasts day with gifts that show your appreciation of his or her hard work and accomplishments. Whether your gymnast is having fun with a baby class in tumbling or working on backward handsprings for competition, he or she will appreciate room decorations that acknowledge all the hard work that goes into preparing a performance or participating in a competition. Wall decorations and stickers make a great way to display medals and can act as a backdrop for a shelf of medals or statues.
