Show off your budding Picasso's masterpieces! There are countless ways to display your kid's artwork, but here are a few of our favorites that will help you get organized.
Display your kid's crafts or artwork on the refrigerator door where everyone can see it.
Hang your kid's artwork on the inside of any exterior steel doors around your home. Four strategically placed (strong) magnets will hold the artwork in place so it doesn't blow away every time someone opens the door.
Hang a mini clothesline on one wall in your kid's bedroom so he can clip his artwork to it.
Or, if you're feeling extra handy, transform one wall of his room into a gigantic bulletin board by hanging a thin layer of cork. But remember, you'll need to help your child hang his artwork high up so the pushpins out of his reach until he's old enough to use them on his own.
Buy a few inexpensive picture frames or make your own frames out of cardboard or other materials to make displays for art.
You can achieve pretty impressive results by painting a cardboard frame with gold paint and then decorating it with multi-colored pasta or glitter.
Attach a favorite kid's painting to a thin piece of wood and hang it on your wall.
Get organized and laminate your kid's artwork to create a special set of placemats.
Or use them as thank-you notes. Fold your kid's painting or drawing in half to form a card and have your kid write a sweet note inside, thanking family and friends for birthday or holiday gifts.
Use your computer as a display for kids' crafts or art that doesn't take up any extra space, so you get organized. Scan one of your kid's creations and use the image as a screen saver, or add one of his illustrations to the notes you send out during the holidays.report abuse
