We all love every drawing, painting, and craft that our kids create. Most of us keep our little one’s masterpieces for as long as we can but eventually, it turns into clutter and the once beautiful mothers’ day cards and paper plate bunny hats are ripped and ruined! We’ve found the most fun, innovative, and creative ways to display kids arand archive all those works, from cool ideas for framing to archiving apps.

DIY Framed Art
This one is probably my favorite. Here’s a great way to display your little artist’s latest work. When your child hands you a new piece of their artwork you can change it out! Choose from different colors, shapes, and sizes! Stores like Hobby Lobby, Walmart, and the dollar store are great places to get some affordable frames that are perfect for this project!
Umbra Artista Kids Art Frame $ 19.00 at the containerstore.com Art Frame works like an art cabinet, opening so you can store, organize, and change out an ever-expanding collection of drawings, paintings, and photos. An interior elastic band keeps contents secure. A clear frame keeps the focus on the displayed image.
This idea is exactly like it sounds–a wall of clipboards. Parents will love that this method is cheap and makes for super simple art change-outs. They may not love that they have to nail them into the wall. Still, 15 or so clipboards with colorful artwork can spark some cultured conversation. You can buy a pack of 6 on, Amazon.
