Kids’ artwork can be a pain to sort, store and display. If your kids are like mine, they’re prolific — and very attached to their masterpieces. Here are some ways to sort through their productions and display the best:
1. Digital Frames. Scan your little Picasso’s masterpieces into the computer, save them to a flash memory card, and put them on rotating display. (I love this lucite-look frame from Amazon for under $40: eMotion DF-EM7BL 7-Inch Ambient-Blue Digital Picture Frame.)
2. String ‘Em Up. I got this idea from my son’s first-grade teacher. It’s a perfect way to show off lots of work in a minimum of space. All you need is a spool of fishing line (or yarn) and a pack of clothespins. Easy-peasy!
3. Frame It. Make your Monet-in-training feel even more special with some fancy frames. Forget the designer frames, though, and try these Gilt Frames Wall Stickers. Not only are they easy to use, they’re repositionable!
4. Photo Book! Scan ‘em all in, upload them to Shutterfly, and create a gorgeous coffee table book.
5. Group Them. Put a bunch of unrelated pictures together in matching frames, and they look like real works of art! You can get inexpensive frames from the craft store in a plain black or white. Let the artwork shine and add the color.
