Displaying Kids' Art Projects At Home


What do you do with all of the pictures that come home from school? As a young mom, I quickly realized I could not keep EVERY piece of paper that my kids drew on, but there are definite keepers. This round-up is full of terrific ideas on how to save/display the creativity of our budding artists. You’ll find suggestions for rotating displays as well as more permanent features. Did you ever think of using a curtain rod and rings, wood, wire and clips or a repurposed cabinet door for showcasing artwork? There are hinged frames that store and display, magnetic boards, corkboard tiles and clipboards. Use clothespins, wood hangers or make colorful temporary tape frames. Learn how to re-size art for a changing gallery in a multi-windowed frame, transfer images onto fabric or scan and input images onto your computer to print out a collection in book form.

There are some great ways here to admire and save our kids’ art without every surface of the house being over taken by pieces of paper. You’ll be inspired by these attractive ways to display your kids’ art projects!
