If you happen to have kids in your life - your own, nieces, nephews, grandkids etc., - chances are you have been on the receiving end of some good, old-fashioned scribbles. And what on earth do you do with those fantastic little scribbles?
In our house, we have come up with several options. My daughter LOVES to draw and paint, particularly with her grandpa. And we end up with a TON of pictures at the end of the day. For starters, we found a fabulous roll of wired ribbon that we hung on the wall. Add some clothes pins and voila! A quick and easy solution for displaying some pictures (plus, kids can hang their works themselves!).

Another great idea for displaying kids art is to create a pin board. We have one of these at home too. Using a vintage frame (which I painted with Golden Acrylic Paint - Iridescent Pearl), I stretched a piece of bright paisley fabric on a piece of foam core and attached it to my frame. With pins, I can attach my daughter's works of art and replace them as new ones arrive.
Or, do as 'Less Than Perfect Life of Bliss' has done, and give old frames a new life with a coat of paint and some colourful art. Here, binder clips hung on the wall allow art to be changed as needed.

Finally, you can take some of those art works, and frame them. Kids art can be colourful, modern and fun, fun, fun.
Our spring window display features artwork done by the children who attend Flutterbug Preschool here in Regina.

Hope you are all having a great Tuesday.
