Children are wired to be creative. They invent games, explore, imagine, and as an effect they love to color and paint – inside and outside the line – and even on your living room walls!
Here’s my daughter’s art attack on our living room wall when she was two years old!
Thankfully my neighbor introduced me to Magic Eraser and that episode never happened again, whew!
But throughout the years, I’ve developed ways on how to organize her artwork!
First I have a file case that I use to store her art. I label the tabs according to her age in months since I’ve been collecting this ever since she was able to hold a pen.
You can also use some twine and paper clips to hang her best artwork on the wall. Just follow a one-in-one-out policy. For every artwork you stick up, you take one down.
Never stop your kids from drawing, coloring or painting. Encourage them to be as imaginative as they can possibly be!

Here is another idea on how to create a beautiful space in your home for your child’s artwork.
Create a FABRIC CORKBOARD WALL!
First pick out some fabric if you don’t have some left over pieces, or you can also use an old bed sheet, curtain or skirt whose print you particularly like.
Lay down your fabric, then lay down your cork board right over it.
Cut the fabric to your cork board’s shape, making sure there is about 3-4 inches of fabric surrounding the board.
Glue the fabric to the board, making sure that each side of the fabric is tight.
Flip the board to check if the pattern and the fabric is tight and glued on right.
You can stop here and hang your fabric cork board up or you can do many fabric cork board pieces and then glue them to a large piece of plywood.
