Our family room is actually a playroom for the kids.  From a train table and book shelves, to video games and a keyboard, everything the kids need is in that room.  There is even another small room off that room where we keep all of their toys.  I decided this should also be the place to display the twins artwork from Preschool.

  how to display kids artwork

All you need to make this artwork display is:

  • Over-sized wooden pegs (about $1 ea at craft stores)
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Cord
  • Hooks that have a closing device on them (perfect for hanging necklaces that little hands can't pull off the hook)
  • Mod Podge

While I'm showing off a little of the twins artwork, I want to share with you a picture that Marisol drew a few weeks ago.


She told me that it is a picture of her brother Flynn.  I totally see that – head, arms, legs, wild hair.

That’s quite an impressive drawing Miss Marisol created! Really, it is advanced for a little girl who is just barely three! Future artist maybe???
I love your artwork line! I think this is a fabulous idea. Currently, I just have our kiddos artwork taped up to the kitchen cabinets and all the doors in the house! Your idea seems much cuter!!!

I love it! I only wish I was as clever and creative as you Tonya!

Great idea! I Love Marisol’s picture too! It looks like Flynn is either surfing, playing in a wave on the beach or jumping in a puddle. lol Either way I can totally see him! 🙂

would you share more about the clips shown holding the artwork? are they regular size clothes pins? they look a bit wider? i would love to know how you made them so cute!

The clips are extra large ones available in the unfinished wood section at most craft stores. I used scrapbook paper and mod podge to decorate them.
