Blogging Wondertime Magazine: Displaying Your Kids' Artwork

Our own Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan was called upon for advice on appreciating your kids' artwork without becoming buried in it. Turns out less really is more, and every kid deserves their own gallery of sorts.

We agree with Maxwell that clearing out clutter makes room for new projects and inspiration. We've certainly found that to be true even in our own creative projects.

Maxwell also recommended showing off the carefully chosen works in "one 'intentional, beautiful' display space (not the fridge)."

"Choose one really nice spot that everyone can see and that has boundaries so it can't spread," he said.

So, what are some ways in which you can create your own special gallery? There are a whole bunch of suggestions over at Wondertime. Our favorites: blow-up inflatable frames, Lil' Da Vinci frames that swing open for easy art transfers, or wall-mounted cable systems made of wire or simply clothespins and string.

How do you showcase your child's artwork?
