1. Document On Instagram (or other Social Media you like!) 

Most parents use one or more social media app and have easy access to take photos via your smartphone. Instagram is just for photos, so why not capture all of your kids art projects, drawings and fun activities on there? Your photos can be edited or you can post short videos. Get creative and be sure to share your photos with friends and family! Check out this article on how to use Instagram for so many more ideas!

2. DIY Coasters

Get out the Modge Podge for this crafty way to display your kids art projects! While you may not want to make 100 tile coasters, you will want to choose some of your child's favorite art pieces. And, since they are so easy to make, you can use these for gifts for the grandparents as well! 

Directions:

1. Trim photos of kids art projects, rounding the edges so they fit onto the tile.

2. Glue photos down or use a coat of Modge Podge to place the photos on tiles.

3. Place a coat of Modge Podge on top of the photo and allow to dry for 15-20 minutes.

4. Go over the photo with another layer of Modge Podge and dry for another 20 minutes.

5. Using glue, attach felt to the back of the coaster so it doesn't scratch table surfaces.

3. Rotating Art Wall 

We have seen many ideas on how to display kids art on the walls. One of our favorites is using large empty frames. You can easily rotate the art projects and the kids will love to have all of their art displayed, even if it gets changed out every few weeks. Organized Clutterbug shares a cute and affordable way to create an organized wall display, using frames from Goodwill! 

4. Make a Photo Book

Most photo printing services also offer to print a photo book, which will make a high quality and, usually, a high-resolution keepsake for an affordable price. Collect several photos from your kids art projects and drawings. Then all you need to do is choose the order of the photos, select a cover and print your custom photo book. Your child’s art will be saved for years and years and you can also use these books as gifts!
