5 Brilliant Ways to Display Your Child’s Art

Encourage your child's creativity and imagination by hanging their artwork.

Is your refrigerator door overflowing with your child’s latest masterpieces?

Every day your kids take off for school and arrive home with a new, vibrant work of art. Their hard work and unique projects deserve to be showcased more prominently. What if you could save these memories for life, instead of throwing them on the fridge to be forgotten?

Check out these 5 brilliant ways to show off your kid’s creativity and declutter your kitchen.

Frame Your Child’s Art

Framing special pieces are a great way to display your child's creative artwork.
A simple solution to cleaning up the clutter is to frame your child’s art — but only choose the best pieces. Frame a fantastic painting that stood out to you, an abstract hand painting, or a family portrait they spent hours finishing.

You can even let your child help customize it and pick out a frame. They’ll understand they created something remarkable, and feel proud to show off a framed piece of art that looks so special.

Build Refrigerator Magnets

Create customized photo magnets for a permanent way to display your kid's art.
Your fridge can still house your child’s art display, but it doesn’t have to look chaotic. Turn outstanding art projects into photo magnets to keep the artwork on your fridge. You can avoid torn paper and splotches of coffee stains — your magnets will last a lifetime! They easily wipe down with a damp towel.

Build fun customized photo magnets. Shrink down your image to a cleaner 2” x 2” size, without losing any of the detail. We’ll use our PicturePerfect technique to edit your photos and ensure the original artwork features are fully captured.

Give Your Child’s Art a Makeover

Transform your child's painting into a beautiful canvas print.
Who else appreciates your kid’s popsicle stick art as much as you? Your family. Give them a personal gift they’re guaranteed to love. You can really make a special painting pop by turning it into a high-quality canvas print

Your children can gift their print to Grandma, Aunt, or Uncle. Your family members will be thrilled to receive such a sentimental present! 

Not sure where to start? Simply scan or take a photo of your child’s work and upload it to us. Our in-house designers will work then with you to turn it into a gallery-quality photo print. Perfect as a gift for anyone in the family!

Make a Scrapbook

Scrapbooking is a fun project to showcase your children's art.

You can save piles of drawings by condensing them into a scrapbook. Here are a few options to help you get creativity flowing:

  • Purchase a colorful binder and fill loose, plastic sleeves with your child’s drawings.
  • Invest in a beautiful scrapbook and glue the artwork inside the pages.
  • Take digital photos of your proud kid holding their artwork and print those photos to place in a scrapbook.

The beauty of this tip is that you get to decide how much time and effort you want to dedicate to the project.


Create a Display Wall

Use twine and clothespins to hang up your child's art.
This fresh take on a DIY gallery wall offers an easy way to display child’s art. Create designated space in your home for hanging artwork — whether it’s in your child’s bedroom, the playroom, or an unused nook.

Evenly space out nails into rows on your wall. Loop durable string, like twine, around the nail and tie a knot. All you need it add is clothespins to hang your children’s latest designs! This is a quick afternoon task that makes a revolving display of preschool art projects easier to maintain.
