From the moment they can hold a crayon, we start collecting our kids’ artworks – finger paintings, crayon drawings, sculptures, collages and adorable handmade cards. As much as we love receiving them, these artworks tend to accumulate and take up a LOT of storage and wall space.

Give a few of their favourite pieces pride of place and store the rest. You can always take pics of the pieces before you toss them so that you always have a digital reminder.

After trawling the internet we have found some fabulously creative ways to display kids art. Here are our favourites:

This is our ultimate favourite. If your kids are ok with it take samples of their artwork with a large circle hole punch and arrange them in a frame. This would work beautifully with white, black or timber frames and adds a lovely little pop of colour to your home. This can be done with triangles, squares, butterfly or any shape that strikes your fancy.
