Do you have piles of your kids artwork?  Are you tired of having artwork stuck on your walls and cabinets with tape?  Want a better way to save and display your kids artwork?

Here are 10 easy tips from Elizabeth Goodsell, from That’s Neat Organizing, for saving, sharing and showcasing art!

  1. Save the best.  Toss the rest!
  2. Create a rotating “gallery” area in your home to display artwork
  3. Use a display shelf to showcase special pieces
  4. Laminate artwork for placemats
  5. Give artwork away to grandparents and others who love your kids
  6. Turn artwork into wrapping paper or gift cards
  7. Hang art on the wall or the fridge, and each month take a photo of your child in front of the pieces; then get rid of the artwork, but keep the photos in a special photo album
  8. Designate a box for each child to store favorite artwork.  Keep only what fits in the box…your child can help choose the pieces to keep
  9. Take digital photos of the artwork and turn them into a computer “slideshow” screensaver.
  10.  Take digital photos of the artwork, upload to an online photo site, and then create  a simple calendar or photo album to keep or share
