Is your fridge struggling under the weight of your mini-Picasso’s masterpieces? Are you storing every drawing, every painting, every 3D creation, every ceramic… blob? Yeah, us too.
Whether it be a squiggly line or a rather graphic picture of daddy doing a poo in the backyard, use one of these 10 creative ways to display your angel’s artwork and they’ll always know just how proud of them you are.
Peg it up
If you’re itching to whip out your glue gun, then this is the project for you. Grab a long ruler, as many pegs as you want (allow room to display each piece without overlap), glue the two together and you have a whiz-bang display unit for artwork and homework. (via Ana White)
All on display
Looking for a way to really make their artwork shine? Get the creative folk at Artrooms to give you a hand. All you have to do is send them your tot’s top art (up to 88 pieces). They’ll then photograph, scan, print and frame them all in one cool piece of art, ready for you to hang. Clever! (via Artrooms)

It’s a corker
From paintings to stellar report cards, these inexpensive cork tiles are a great way to showcase your little lamb’s work. If you’re renting you could use 3M hanging strips on the back to protect your walls. (via Everyday Reading)
Mini Picasso brings work home… you coo, take a photo of it, tag it and save it to Artkive ($6.49). When you’re ready, you can have it all printed into a display book. Just like that, Nanna’s Christmas present is sorted. (via Artkive App)
No frame framing
Use a matting board with a bulldog clip to cleverly display pictures. The frameless design allows for high rotation of those creative little gems. (via IHeart Organizing)
An easy option – just grab a coat hanger for pants/skirts and use the clips to hang their art. You can whack the art in a ziploc bag to preserve it from sticky fingers. Inexpensive and genius! (via Ziploc)
