Clever ways to display your child's artwork

Clever ways to display your child's artwork

Instead of storing your child's paintings and drawings in a shoe box, help your little one create their own gallery. Here's how.

Bathroom gallery

Hanging art takes up little space while adding colour and pizazz for guests to admire. Use matching frames for a uniform look or just hang the pictures in symmetrical rows with removable tape.

Scrapbooks

Let your child decorate the cover of the album and write or paste their 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 their favourite pieces on fabric and sew it into a quilt. Your child can use it for years!

Clothes line

String a clothes line through your child's bedroom, and clip their artwork to it. To set up the clothes line, place two removable hooks on the walls across the room. String a clothes line between them and clip the artwork to it with pegs.

Place Mats

Try laminating your child's artwork to make easy-to-clean place mats.

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. It could make a great gift for grandparents and godparents!
