Clever Ways to Display Your Child's Art

Clever Ways to Display Your Child's Art

Are your child's drawings and paintings piling up all over the house? Pick up some nifty ideas for preserving, displaying, and enjoying these wonderful creations.

Kids are proud of their artwork, and they should be. Instead of storing your child's paintings and drawings in a box, consider these suggestions.

Bathroom gallery. Why not decorate a main-floor bathroom with your child's work? Hanging art takes up little space while adding color and pizzazz for guests to admire. Use matching frames for a uniform look or just hang the pictures in symmetrical rows with removable tape.

Scrapbooks. Making one of these is a simple way to store and display a lot of artwork in a small space. Let your child decorate the cover of the album and write or paste his name prominently on the cover. Place the scrapbook on the coffee table in the family room so your child can show it to guests.

Quilts. Photograph your child's artwork and save it on your computer. Print his favorite pieces on fabric and sew it into a quilt. Your child can use it for years!

Clothesline gallery. Put up a clothesline in your child's bedroom, and clip his artwork to it. To set up the clothesline, place two removable hooks on the walls across the room. String a clothesline rope between them and clip the artwork to it with clothespins.

Placemats. Try laminating your child's artwork to make easy-to-clean placemats. Many copy shops will do laminating while you wait.

Calendars. This is a great way to use 12 pieces in one creation. Simply scan your child's artwork and then upload it to an online photo service. Calendars make a great gift for grandparents and godparents!
