Kids Arts and Crafts – Organize, Display and Store
Is your child’s bedroom overrun with arts and crafts? Is your refrigerator covered with kid art work and school papers? Looking for solutions to show off their talents, yet not let your home be overrun?
We have been on the hunt to find creative way to organize, display and store kids arts and craft. Here are our favorite ways to get organized, display talents and store away kids art and schoolwork.
Frame and Post Kids Art
Perfect decor for their bedroom and/or around the house. You can change the art to update to newest works. Also, you can scan “old” art work and display in a digital frame.
Old Fashion Bulletin Board and Refrigerator
A bulletin board works well for displaying kids art and school work. The trick is to update it regularly and don’t overcrowd. Prune the art work regularly. Consider having a theme, such as, spelling texts, stories written by kids or art only.
Drawers, Bins and File Cabinets
A designed storage area helps keep kids arts and crafts neat, tidy and easy to find. Using plastic containers, bins and dividers helps. Use smaller containers in the drawers to hold small items, crayon, pencils, pens, beads, etc., it makes them much easier to find and use.
Show off Your Favorite Kid Art Work
Turn your favorite kid art work into a T-shirt, Key Ring, Mug, or Placemat. You can submit a digital copy to sites like CustomInk.com and they will display it on items of your choice.
Make Your Own Wall Mural
Select the artwork you want to display and upload to a site like MuralsYourWay.com to create a custom wall mural. Use one piece of art or make a collage.
If you have a stack of saved art and school work, go through and organize into categories, select the best of each category, and place in a scrapbook. You can divide scrapbooks into sections or use separate books for each age, e.g age 3-5 or grades in school, “First Grade”, etc.
Pin pictures and school papers up on a clothesline which is attached to wall. It’s cute home decor and lets their true colors shine through! Also, t’s easy to prune and change to most recent works.
