How to Display Kids Artwork Like a ROCKSTAR!

When the door is full or the seasons change, I take the projects down to make room for new ones. Rotating out the projects regularly helps cut down on artwork-induced clutter taking over the entire house.

It also helps showcase fewer pieces of art at a time, helping them to feel that much more special.

If there’s something that turned out exceptionally well or my son really likes it, it will go into a folder to be considered for long-term storage, but most projects are recycled at that point.

We hang it up on the wall.

It’s fun and easy decor 🙂

Some people have a terrible time throwing away recycling their kids’ artwork.

They feel like they’re not honoring their child by discarding art. Here’s another way to look at it.

Children’s artwork is often about the process, not the product.

Kids are exploring, creating, experimenting with colors, crayons, paint, etc. They’re building fine motor skills, attention spans and imagination. And you’ll probably love everything they bring home, no matter what it looks like!

So if the focus is on the process, then why do we feel such a need to hang onto the product for so long?

Send kids’ artwork to relatives

Grandma and Grandpa will be thrilled to get some special projects and your child will be equally thrilled to send them off in the mail. It’s a win for everyone.

Plus, your relatives will probably not have the same angst at eventually getting rid of the papers as you might.

Use your kids’ artwork as gift wrap

Fun and free! Using handmade creations from your creative children as wrapping paper adds an extra special touch you can’t get at the store.

Hint, hint: It’s also an easy way to get rid of those excess school papers from art class that contribute to a cluttered house.

Turn it into a photobook

For extra special treatment, scan or photograph the artwork and turn it into a photobook.

Personalized photo books are such a fun way to preserve memories! My kids love looking through our photobooks! It’s truly a way to elevate everyday moments and creations to something you can enjoy for decades to come.

  1. So helpful, thank you! Have kept much of my daughter’s artwork–she’s 10!! Started weeding through but left it awhile ago. Ready to dig in with a photo book!

  2. My entire garage is decorated with my child’s art work. I love coming home to it and everyone comments on it! It’s the best thing I ever started with regard to my house.

    • Now that is an idea I have NEVER heard and I LOVE it! What a fun and guilt-free way to decorate your garage and enjoy all that inspiration. Thank you for sharing!
