Storing and Displaying Your Child’s Artwork

To keep or not to keep?  That is the question.  I am sure that many of you have had the Recycling Box Moment…when your child finds his/her cherished pieces of work in the Blue Bin and you pretend that you have no idea how those papers got in there.  If you are like me, you keep way too many masterpieces.  Here are a few ideas for storing and displaying your child’s work:

  • Take digital photos and keep them in a folder on your computer.  No piles of paper, but you still have a nice record of your child’s work.
  • Keep 8×10 papers in a binder.  Your child will love browsing through their work.
  • Use a large magnetic board (like this one from IKEA).   Magnetic clothes pins can be useful too.
  • Display on a large cork board or group a few smaller ones on a designated art wall.  You can paint the board or cover it with wrapping paper to give it some umph.
  • Create a photo-book of your child’s work.  You can make one at the end of every school year to keep neatly in your child’s library.
  • Last but not least, as in the above photo from Ohdeedoh, you can use Ikea’s curtain wires ($9.99 with clips!) to create this amazing display which I just adore.
