Ideas for displaying Kids’ Artwork

Between school and home, my two boys are constantly creating masterpieces. With the constant influx of painted paper, cardboard box sculptures, and pipecleaner statues, my smallish house was getting smaller. So I came (and researched) up with some ideas for displaying kids’ artwork. 

Here are some of the ideas for displaying kids’ artwork that I have employed. 

Gallery Walls

 Kid's Artwork

I love the splash of color their artwork brings to the room. A touch of whimsy and something much more personal than a framed reproduction. Not to mention the boys love that their work is on display.

In the boys’ play area in the basement, I framed a gallery wall with painter’s tape. Nothing is permanent, and it cost $3 (the cost of the roll of the tape)

Changeable Frames and Bullentin-esque Boards

Here’s another gallery wall in the house.  The snowman in this gallery wall is in a changeable frame. These changeable frames are great. You don’t have to take the frame off the wall, just flip open, and slide in the new art. Brilliant!

Remember the  Holiday Card Holder frame? Well, I kept that puppy up and use it now as another spot for displaying my guys’ work. 


Photo Books

Here’s my latest solution to the piles of art. After each year, I take pictures of each of my boys’ art. I upload, crop, and put into a picture/photo book. I can then recycle all that paper, save on space, and give the boys their very own book of art. 


How do you manage the art of your kid’s (kids’) masterpieces ?

    Displaying your kids’ artwork is a great way to inspire their creativity. As they make more and more and some of the older masterpieces come down from the wall, continue to inspire your little ones and save the art with Keepy!
