Get organised: How to display your kids artwork

ways to display kids artwork

What do you do with all of your kids artworks?  Do you find it piles up so quickly that it gets out of hand?  The art in our home is produced daily which is fabulous on the one hand but on the other I really don’t know what to do with it all.  I’ve always displayed some of it by putting a few pieces on our fridge and blu-tacking others on to a wall (which kept falling off) in the kitchen and then I would change them every couple of months for newer pieces.  I save a few others in a folder and the rest go in the bin at night (naughty mama!).  But it’s impossible to keep all of your kids artwork so I think you have to be selective.

With our new home which we are renovating from scratch I want to be more organised.  Our new fridge will be built-in so I won’t be able to display any art on it.  And besides I want to make a dedicated and permanent space for Anya’s art, not treat it like an afterthought.  So while I was hunting for ways to display kids artwork I came across these slot-in picture frames.  They are designed specially for kids art and come in a range of sizes to accommodate one or more pieces of art.  The frames themselves are very simple so they really allow the art to stand out and can also be used no matter what your decor.  I’m thinking of having an entire wall in a hallway or in the kitchen filled with these frames to make a colourful and fun gallery wall.  But what I love most about these kids art frames is how easily you can slot in new pieces of art.  No tape, no blu-tack, no constantly falling off the wall, no mess, just drop it in and change as and when you wish.  These kids artwork display frames don’t solve the problem of what to do with all the art but they are a fab idea for displaying your favourite pieces easily.

    Love this – we use box frames, which is another look? Kids’ art is so unique and refreshing – I love having it around.

      Are box frames similar? Yes, I really want to have more of Anya’s art around the home than I used to.

    If it weren’t for my children’s art work and photographs of them, we would have some plain walls in our nest. Their work is amazing and so cheery! We invest in their school so it works out that it leaves no room for buying any art since they create it in school. Happy painting!

      That’s lovely that you put up so much of their art – you should show it off on your blog. Would love to see some.
