1. Magnetic board. This is one of the easier ways of displaying art, and is an alternative to the fridge door. You can use a wide variety of things to create your board, from kitchen trays to sheets of steel. If you want to be really creative, you can even get ahold of some magnetic paint and include it in your interior décor. You can put your board up on the wall in a playroom too, that way it’s presented without cluttering your kitchen.
2. Clips and wire. A cheap and simple way of displaying kids’ artwork is to hang up a wire between two walls in your home and clip art to it. Ikea sells a little kit that has the wall attachments, clips, and metal line. They’re really cute!
3. Digital scrapbook. A way of saving the work which didn’t quite make it to the wall is to store it in a scrapbook. Simply take a picture of it, use dropbox.com to send it to your computer, then move it to your “kids art” file, then create a book with it every year, or as needed.
4. Shelves. If your kids have been making 3D artwork, such as small models, then a great way to show them off is to install some shelves. Shelves are also a neat and eye-pleasing way of displaying. This is how we display my sons crafts, and collections. He has 2 shelves in his room dedicated to displaying!
5. Frames and wall art. Probably the most simple way of displaying a picture is by sticking it on the wall. However, you can turn this method from tacky and messy to stylish and artistic with the addition of frames. These neaten things up and give you freedom with display construction, allowing you to create some creative and eccentric designs using different shapes and sizes. This is a great way of displaying your favorite pieces, but if you can’t pick your favorites, you can always swap around what gets displayed from time to time.
