Your kids make a lot of art at school, home, Sunday school, and on play dates. You have filled several boxes of colorful pages happily made by your children, but you're running out of space and ideas on how to keep it all. You don't want to throw away your child's artwork, but the front of your fridge is overcrowded and you just don't know how to display your child's artwork. With these Art Projects for Kids: 5 Ways to Display Children's Art, you can create a beautiful display of your child's art that will look tasteful and make your child feel appreciated and loved.
You love making art with your kids and your kids are always delighted to present you with their latest masterpiece. But you're running out of ways to display it all and you're desperate for a change. Your child's artwork deserves a special display, but more often than not it ends up in a box or a pile with good intentions. Read below how to get from a stack of original artwork to a display that honors their efforts, looks good on the wall, and is easy to switch out art pieces as your children get older and create newer masterpieces.

Child Art Display

Ways to Display Kids Artwork

  1. If your kids have a playroom, then start displaying their masterpieces on the walls in there. It's probably where they paint or color the most, so there will be less time between creation and display. 
    Hang clipboards on a wall and let your children curate their own exhibit. They will be able to change out the displays themselves and show off what they have just created.
    If you want a more sophisticated look or you want to display their artwork around the house in a way that will match the rest of your decor, hang empty frames with binder clips in the middle. You can find thrifted frames in your local thrift and antique stores and hang them on the wall without a backing. The binder clip will work exactly like the clip board would, but it will look much fancier.

  2. Create a photo album of their art. Keep their artwork preserved forever in a scrapbook. You can also include photos of your child taken around the same time as the artwork was drawn. This will be a keepsake that they will be proud of and want to keep forever.

  3. A line and clothespins is an easy and temporary way to display children's art. You can hang the line across a wall and your kids can change their own artwork displays. This is probably the most affordable option because you probably already have clothespins and string in your home.

  4. Ask your child which ones are their favorites and frame them for a gallery wall. Allow your children to take part in the decision process and they will love the gallery wall even more. It will be the perfect decoration for their room, playroom, or even the wall leading up the stairs.

  5. Keep a digital copy. Storing their actual artwork will require an extra storage unit, possibly a 6-car garage, and also a bottomless pit (that is dry and cool for optimal preservation, of course). But if you take pictures of their masterpieces or scan them into the computer, then you have a record that doesn't take up physical space and you can back them up and keep them forever. 
    I recommend keeping your and their favorites, because as they get older, they may want to see and hold the art they created when they were young.
