In their mind’s eye, the picture that your child just handed over is THE BEST thing they have ever created… along with the last ninety-seven pictures you already have stuck to your refrigerator. So that they can be proud and you can open the fridge without 13 papers flying off, today we are talking all about displaying children’s art. Displaying your child’s art does a lot to boost their creative drive. When they see something that they created on display it encourages them to create more.

In Dylan’s room I used clothespins to attach the art and a length of trim to some shelves. It’s cute, easily removable, and interchangeable.

One of those slap your head genius ideas, when it comes to showing off the master pieces, are these frames from UFrame. They are designed to be interchangeable so you can have the latest and greatest on display at all times.

I love the idea of creating a gallery wall that can be added to over time.

It doesn’t even need to be formally framed. Just give them a little corner of the house and they will be thrilled!

And if you are feeling like the parent of the year, follow in John and Sherry’s footsteps and turn the art project into a piece of fabric.

Do you display your child’s art, or are you more of an ‘in the box for safe keeping’ parent?
