Having children means you are guaranteed to get an endless amount of kiddie artwork and schoolwork that you couldn’t possibly throw away. Artwork is a real keepsake for years to come to look back on with your child but the question of what to do with it really peaks after the 8th scribble on a page and scenes of an overflowing fridge or cupboard door.
So here we have my guide to Kiddie Artwork Storage Solutions!
A great way to save space whilst still keeping the memory and general look of the artwork is by taking a digital picture either on a phone or camera and printing them off onto photo paper. Same artwork, smaller space.
Displaying artwork doesn’t just have to take over the entire fridge. Why not try laminating and using the pictures as a placemat or coaster? A very unique way to spice up your home too!
Again with the taking a digital image, but this time go onto an online site such as Photobox and create your very own artwork photo book. A slightly more expensive approach but it works all the same! And the best part is, you can do it all from your phone.
For more than one child, hang up said amount of clipboards on the wall with a cute little name tag and each child gets to chose what piece of artwork is displayed – changing it as often as they like, adding more to the top of the pile.
A Magnetic Wall
Paint a wall in some magnetic paint, find some really cute magnets then display the artwork on a very large scale.
Share the love
Any extra artwork that you aren’t overly worries about keeping yourselves could be sent to grandparents and relatives or to a hospital to cheer up patients. A lovely way for spreading some joy.
This works the same way as a clipboard or magnetic wall. You could put artwork you are keeping on the board for a year then store them away at the end of the year in a storage box/folder.
