I’m just under two months into the school year, and with three school-aged children under the roof, I am swimming in artwork. The bulletin board, the stacks on my counter, my poor fridge! Then just yesterday, I got the nerve to toss about half of it…and my son totally busted me. Needless to say, I’m pretty much back where I started.
definitely pile up. Here, I rounded up five smart ways to store and
display their priceless creations. Whew.
This DIY kids’ art collage tutorial
is a fantastic way to turn your kids’ creations into cool wall art.
Simply scan your favorites and create a grid collage in Photoshop. You
could probably also use a collage template on the free PicMonkey website, so long as you make sure your photos are high-resolution. Then print the collage on good stock paper and frame. Awesome!
I’m a big fan of the Lil Da Vinci art frames, which allow you to beautifully show off your kids’ masterpieces right on your wall. The best part is that you can keep up to 50 creations inside the actual frame before you quietly toss them, or put them in a box for storage.
Also, the ArtKive app is a super easy way to store and share your kids’ art all by doing what you might do already: taking photos and emailing them to your friends and family. This app allows you to create a gallery that can be shared with whomever is in your circle, and then print it for safekeeping.
