Winter can be LONG, especially right now. Enter art to save the day (s)! I’ve been finding some really inspiring projects for kids to create all over Pinterest, as well as some really unique kids’ art display ideas. My kids create constantly, especially drawing and painting, so I am all about finding cool and practical ways to show (and cull!) their work. Here are a few fun ways to display your child’s art.
Kids’ art displays
Miniature art gallery
I think this is one of the coolest ways I’ve seen to display children’s art. What a great project to do together… would also make a great Mother’s or Father’s day gift for kid’s to put together with a parent. Simply scan in children’s art then print it out at a smaller scale, place prints behind a cut-out photo mat and frame. Viola!
It’s really important for me to display things that the kids make in the same spaces where I would display any other art I hang. Having their artwork mixed in with other art makes them feel confident and part of the greater art appreciation in the house.
Kids’ art mobile
How beautiful is this??? A mobile made from children’s art. This would be a wonderful project for a child to create with a parent for the arrival of a new sibling, cousin, or friend’s baby.
Kids’ art display candles
Now, I ask you: how excited would a little critter be if you made his or her art work glow??? Kids love when grown-ups show appreciation for their creativity in sincere ways that help them know you really like and value what they have created. These are made by drawing on parchment paper and then wrapping the drawing around simple glass votives. (For grown-up use when lit, obviously)
Family Gallery Wall
Wire hanging wall display
This is the newest addition to our art display. I’m loving the way it looks, how many drawings it holds, and how easy it is to swap out artwork. This kids love that they can hang their own stuff up and make changes. Not going to lie, I also REALLY love that there is not tape all. over. my. walls.
You can grab this wire wall hanging display here (comes with the clips!)
Finally, we have this super cool project and display idea. Have your children create individual portraits of family members and then hang them all together to create a totally unique family portrait wall. LOVE!
I hope you guys found some inspiration here to display your child’s art. I’d love to hear some of the ways you collect, store, and show your kiddos creations, please share your kids’ art display ideas in the comments 🙂
