Displaying your child’s artwork

Your fridge may dominate as the place for displaying your child’s artwork but here are some creative ways to showcase your child’s art now that you know how to  encourage your child’s inner artist from my last post in May.

Just because it’s on the fridge doesn’t mean it can’t be displayed in a cute way.  I have decorative magnetic clips (see below) for each kid on my (old skool) fridge to display their artwork.

Attach your child’s masterpeices with masking tape (so the paint won’t peel) to a door in the kitchen, playroom, or a child’s bedroom.

Decorate or paint some clipboards and hang them on the wall to feature your child’s latest art.

If you don’t have time to scrapbook (like me), you can purchase document boxes to store your child’s best work in until you do.boxeswebShow several of your child’s best pieces in a collage poster from Simply Create Kids

Cookie Magazine also shares other fun ways to display kid artwork. This image features a simple bulletin board and a few choice pieces can create both a beautiful focal point and an artistic launching pad.

    There is nothing better than for a child to see their artwork on display! Great ideas to help show them off! Thanks!

    Like Mara above, we have created a kitchen gallery for our daughter’s creations. Also, I created a blog purely for her art creations, complete with stories and photos, just in case some of the masterpieces do not survive the test of time (aka: the recycle bin).

    Kelli-I love that you have the card from Melanie from Savvy on your fridge. I have mine handy too!

    Mara- I have one of those wire rods in my laundry room with the kids art on it and LOVE it. I’m thinking about adding another one because that one is full!

    I have been having my kids paint directly on canvas. I give them the same three colors in hopes that they will coordinate. Then I let them go to town… My kids are 2,3, and 5 so it actually is looking like art ;) They are still working on them so I do not have any photos yet to post.

    We bought a wire curtain rod from IKEA and use it as out little art gallery in the kitchen. Check it out on our blog: http://web.me.com/josh.wolff/Adoring_Audrey/Blog/Entries/2010/1/20_Audrey’s_Art_Gallery.html

    You can take pics of your kids artwork and then make it into a photo book with their name and year…. much easier to have on a shelf that they can pull out whenever they want to look at it.

    We have the bulletin board in our loft/office space. The kids art and latest photos go there. When the kids were tiny, my aunt got the kids magnets with their names on them, so when they create new art it goes on the fridge for a week with their magnet. Kind of like their \"spotlight\"

    What a fun post! I love all these ideas and have used a few of them already. This past year I made myself a little “office” space in my laundry room and that is where I display my kids’ masterpieces.
