Displaying Kids Artwork

Kids Artwork Display Ideas

Whether you are a parent, sibling or family friend, you have probably received artwork from a child or have seen them on a refrigerator or tacked up in a cubicle.  There are endless amounts of these little masterpieces that collect over the years, leaving parents with the challenge of how and where to display them.  Displaying art doesn’t have to be complicated, but rather just as creative and lighthearted as the artwork itself.  I have put together 10 stylish display ideas can solve the artwork overload, while showing your child that their works of art are equally as worthy as the rest.

Last but not least, this method of displaying art is probably not for everyone, but it’s certain to make the neighborhood kids jealous. Purchase a roll of 36″ or 48″ wide craft paper available at Discount School Supply and designate one or more walls as a giant canvas.  Once it is filled up with drawings, you can simply cover over with a fresh layer of paper, offered in a variety of colors.  Paper rolls are sold in 50ft – 100ft lengths from $15-$20.  Not a bad price for being the coolest parents on earth.  Image Source: Jan Eleni
