I have a pile of artwork from my children. What are some creative ways I can display them beyond the refrigerator?

Make the most of your kiddie art by framing anything that shows good intent from the artist. If it looks as though your child was inspired and trying to create art, then you’ll definitely want to hang onto it. Placing art behind glass will keep it from getting damaged and offer you an opportunity to display the pieces either in your child’s bedroom, playroom or other casual space in your house.
Lightweight wood frames with glass are widely available at home goods stores, and a single large one can hold one or even a collage of multiple smaller images. Additionally, you and your child can paint the frames to match the colors in the artwork or even the colors of the interior of your home. Hanging your child’s artwork in groupings will also add to their appeal, so careful measuring and an organized layout is important before you hammer in that first nail.
