Simple Tips for Showing off Brag-Worthy Art by Your Kids
In most homes, the first stop for your kid’s artwork is the refrigerator. But when your kids come back from school with a project which you think deserves to be shared with everyone who visits your home or office, the fridge door is not going to cut it. Try a few of the following suggestions to show off your children’s artwork with the style it deserves.
You know how it is. Every week your child comes home from school with a new masterpiece. Why not give your kid’s latest creation the attention it deserves by ‘framing’ it with a cork board frame? This easy-to-make craft only requires a decorative frame, a roll of cork board and glue. All you need to do is remove the glass from the frame and trace the edges on the corkboard. Then cut out the cork board and glue to the inside of the frame. Use thumbtacks to pin artwork to the corkboard.
Get Hung up on Your Kid’s Creativity
One of your extra pants hangers, the straight ones with the clips, can pull double duty as a wonderful way to hold and show off your child’s art. Let your child decorate it any way they want. Then choose the drawing or painting, clip it in and hang the hanger on any doorknob or hook in your home. This is a great way to up-cycle something you may otherwise throw away while brightening up your kid’s room.
Create a Kids-Only Gallery
Give your little ones their own permanent space to show off their artwork in your home. Whether you decide to paint permanent frames on the wall, hang a rope on the wall and use clothespins to clip up art, create a chalkboard wall, or something else, setting aside a place where you can keep all of your kids’ creative efforts in one area. It will not only promote their talent, but it will make them feel good about themselves every time they walk past.
Long-Term Art Storage
So, what do you do when it is time for the artwork to come down, but you can’t bear to throw it away? Save it, of course. Besides providing countless memories of your kids growing up, as an added bonus, you can show it to grandkids in the future to embarrass their parents. Try storing smaller artwork in plastic pockets and organizing them by year into binders. Larger plastic storage boxes which can slip under the bed are great for bigger projects.
