If your husband or children won't come out of their caves- make the caves more bearable! These petroglyph tablets are made using ceiling acoustic tiles. That's right! Finally, a great way to decorate your walls with those spare tiles. Just tear the edges, add some paint and voile! An artifact from the stone age. Because of their inexpensive cost (just 50 cents at the hardware store), your tiles can change along with your children. As they grow into and out of room themes, these simple tiles add a bit of fun and flair to any room.

Cut one of the ceiling tiles in half. Break the edges of the ceiling tile and then tear at the front and the back so that the edges appear rough.
Use the tiles and low tack blue tape mark a frame around the edge of the tile. Paint in a bright color such as red, blue, yellow or green. Then stencil a design, such as an Airplane for a younger child. Use a train stencil and paint a different railroad car on each tile and very the heights when mounting on the wall. How about something pretty in pink for that little girl like Zany Flowers A371S.
Ceiling tiles can be purchased in different sizes and I have even used the 2' x 4" to make wall hangings for more grown up projects like an ancient vase or urn.
