Tired of all the children’s artwork hanging haphazardly on your refrigerator door?  Why not turn children’s artwork into fabulous displays throughout the home?  Children’s artwork adds a personal touch to any room.  By displaying it prominently, it also sends a message that a child’s creative expression is appreciated and valued.  Here are some simple ways to creatively display children’s artwork at home:

  • Cover a favorite drawing with clear contact paper on the front and back, trim and use as a place mat.
  • Create a gallery wall by framing scribbles, coloring pages or drawings in matching frames or use a series of shelves to display a mix of framed art, painted plates, mugs or clay sculptures.
  • Buy some shadow boxes to display art along with a paintbrush or a photo of the child creating the artwork.
  • Make a collage by cutting up several pieces of artwork to make one, bigger piece of art.
  • Have a child create note cards or a cover for a daily things to do book.
  • Create a clothesline on a wall and clip pictures to it.
  • Encourage a child to make holiday ornaments each year and save them to use year-to-year.
