Kids make a lot of art and we are here for it, but our refrigerator doors, on the other hand, are not. Yeah, we’re for sure the people that can no longer see the fridge doors because there are collages, paintings, coloring book pages, doodles, and don’t even get us started on the art from school, covering basically our whole fridge at this point. So today we’re looking at some new and interesting ways to display all of that incredible kid art. Let’s get started!
Okay, this is a great way to display a ton of art and decorate their bedroom or playroom. (What can we say? We’re problem solvers.) With just some wire, clothespins, and eye hooks, you can transform the lower quadrant of the walls in these rooms into a tiny art gallery. This is also a cool way to limit the amount of art on display while also letting your little humans pick what is on display and what pieces need to retire.
If you’ve got the space, time, and know-how, consider installing a small area of cork tiles for kiddos to proudly display art. Kids can choose where they’d like to hang their art and you’ll probably be surprised by how much art can and will fit into one area. If your kiddo has a designated art area, we love the idea of the cork tile being installed behind or next to where the magic happens.
If you have a wall that you just aren’t sure what to do with, allow us to recommend a gallery wall of your kiddo’s art. All you have to do is find some frames in various sizes at a local thrift store, paint them all the same color, you can opt for bright colors or something neutral, then hang them up on the wall empty of course, within the frame hang a clothespin, then you can hang art from the clothespin making it easy to display and switch out.
If you like the idea and ease of cork tiles but aren’t sure about installing a whole area, then consider buying some large, cheap picture frames and making your own bulletin boards. You can hang one large one or make a little gallery wall of them, and you’ve got the ease of cork without the commitment of installing an entire wall.
Last, but not least, let a cheap clipboard be your saving grace. Find some wall space that could use a little color and hang clipboards. No push pins, hooks, or clothespins necessary, all you have to do is clip art onto the boards.
