If your kid is anything like mine, the artwork is starting to overtake the house. As parents, we try to encourage the creative outlet, but let’s face it, no one told us it’d take over our home. I mean you remember our home right? The thing we spent so much time decorating and get just right. Now it’s hidden under toys and well, sometimes food. Now we have artwork too? We have got to draw the line somewhere!
But wait. Throwing it out just isn’t an option right? I mean god forbid they see it in the trash can. That’s a whole can of tantrum and hurt we do not want to open. So what option do we have?
Don’t fear. I have a solution. Sometimes kids artwork can be a little overbearing. If we let it’ll take over our whole house (and hey if you’re that mom then cool, but not all of us are). So instead let’s take a look at some super sleek ways of display it. I’ve been thinking about this for a while and I’ve picked my five top favorite ways for kid art display. They are sure to make any mom (or dad. I don’t discriminate) happy.
This is one of my favorite solutions to kids art display. All you do is buy a bunch of clipboards they can usually be found in a pack for inexpensive, clip your kids art to them, and then hang them up. Most have a little spot on the back that can catch a hook to be hung up.
There are many ways to make a picture frame into a kid art display. You can simply frame your favorites and cycle them out over time or you can use a large picture frame to frame a spot on the wall with paper in it. Them as your kids draws it’s always framed and when they want something new you can simply replace the paper.
A little disclaimer. My friends kid took this idea and thought it was okay to draw on the walls as well. So just make sure they know to only draw on the paper within the picture frame.
This is one of the sleekiest ways to display kids art in my opinion. Simply take a metal surface and hang in somewhere at kid level. Add magnets and now they can display which art they want. This allows them to make the decision on what art needs to move in while others stay.
If you have a child who just can’t part with any of their art then his option might just be for you. Simply purchase a binder and some page protectors. Now you’re all set to place your child’s precious artwork into a permanent spot. Now they can enjoy it (or never look at it again) for years to come and no one has to cry when it ends up in the trash.
These kid art display ideas are sure to make the whole family happy. Which one was your favorite? How did you display art in the past?
