Creating art is an important part of a child’s development as he learns motor skills, shape recognition, and how to express his creativity. All of this artistic expression can easily lead to a fridge covered in drawings! If you’re looking for more unique ways to display the work of your little Michelangelo, here are a few suggestions.
Frame It: If you have favorites among your child’s artworks, you can frame a few of them to display on your walls. If you’d like to keep a rotating collection, try taping or clipping drawings and paintings into picture frames with the glass removed. This way, you can easily put in new artworks without dismantling the entire frame.
Hang It on a Clothesline: Try hanging a clothesline across a wall and use clothespins to hang your child’s art. This technique also makes it easy to rotate new pieces in and out—just unclip the clothespin!
Make It into a Book: Some online services will print your child’s artwork into a professional-looking book, so all you have to do is supply the works of art. This option may be a bit pricey, but it makes a great keepsake. Though the actual paint-and-paper art will fade over the years, this book will be a permanent way to remember this time in your child’s life.
Scan It: If you have access to a scanner and a little computer savvy, you can create image files of your child’s art. Alternatively, you can simply snap photos of the art with your digital camera. Once the art is in the computer, you can use it as a background image for your desktop or create a special collage.
