From their earliest days, babies and toddlers are creating art in their different settings, at home, at playgroup, nursery and school - the progression of their artwork tells a wonderful story of their development.  From early splodges and hand and footprints, through to detailed pictures of the family, their house and other scenes that they have witnessed.  Every parent is proud of their little one's achievement, and it's lovely to have see their artwork on display in your home.

Here are some ideas on how to display their artwork so that you can be proud of what they make, and they can feel special too:-

  • Create a dedicated 'gallery' space for their art; it could be on the refridgerator, a wall in the kitchen, in the hallway or even in the bathroom!
  • Look for some cheap frames that you can use in special places, such as the living room or bedroom.  You can shop around for cheap clipframes or frames that come complete with prints - just make sure that you can unclip the back and change the artwork for your own
  • Change the artwork regularly so that there's always room for newer art
  • Keep a large scrapbook and stick in pictures that you have talken down
  • Record the date on the back of artwork and write it in the scrapbook too so that you can look back through your child's artistic development
  • Turn your toddler's artwork into Christmas Cards or other custon items, see our post on creating personalised Christmas Cards
  • Have your child's best masterpieces scanned and printed onto canvas - this turns art into a talking point!
