Cool Tips to Preserve Your Child’s Artwork

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post mentioning a unique way of preserving your child’s art by creating a mosaic collage. It got me thinking of other ways to organize all your little Picasso’s works of art that may be accumulating in a box at the back of your closet (that would be me). These are a few ideas to get you started:

Photo Books: Take pictures of their art to include in a photo book. This one comes from Pinhole Press. I wrote a post a few months ago about about my favorite photo books. Not into digital? Scrapbook it.Frame: Kids just love seeing their masterpiece framed and hung with pride. You don’t have to pay a fortune for frames. Pick up vintage frames at a secondhand stores and just paint—super easy and super crafty.

Hang: You can get creative displaying your art with a DIY banner or clip ropes.

Magnetic Paint: Paint a large square on the wall using magnetic paint. You and your child can switch up the art monthly, so it’s always fresh and new.

Three-Ring Binders: A no-brainer—buy a binder, some page protectors and label them with the age of your child and the date.

Wall Decals: I love the decals at Butch and Harold. You can get the look of a frame without hammers, and it won’t hurt your walls. Genius!

Wallpaper: I’m crazy about this wallpaper filled with blank picture frames that your kids can draw on.

How do you store/display your child’s artwork?

I found all yr ideas usefull,one suggestion from me is to make a gift wrap out of yr child's artwork and they can even do their own greetings out of their art work by cutting and pasting them on a plain white thick paper for occasions like Christmas n new year to share with grandparents and friends too instead of spending a fortune over cards at stores.....

Hi Steve - what a GREAT idea. I love it! I'm buying one each for me and little Daisy's grandparents. Why haven't I seen this before?!

My wife Lucy designed this cute book/album called 'The Great Works' Children's Artwork Holder, featuring illustrated empty 'picture frames' that you can slot the kid's drawings into - even including 'plaque' stickers to write the title/artist name on!

Excellent article. With today's digital technology, I think more and more people would love to preserve their memories and their children's output in a photo book. Indeed, residents in New Zealand opt to to learn how to make their own photo book.
