One wonderful way kids begin to express themselves as creative individuals is through art. Valuing their creations by hanging their work encourages and supports their development. If you have a child who comes home with bundles of art pieces or likes to spend time at the table drawing, finding space for all their work in a tasteful way can be a challenge. Here are some ways to manage this:
- *have an art folder and ask your child to pick up to 5 art pieces to hang; change them monthly
- *have a "masterpiece" frame or area for your child to select their favorite piece
- *have a list of family or friends your child can gift their work to
For those pieces you wish to keep and share, a simple display method is a cork board for pinning work. Aside from this, finding neutral, lovely frames, using decals, or clothespinning on a wire are stylish ways to let your little artist shine.
