Dollar Store Solution to Displaying Kids’ Artwork

Kids Art Display with Dollar Store Clipboards

With kids, it’s always a difficult task keeping the clutter under control.  If your little ones are into arts and crafts, you know where I’m coming from.  I’ve heard many parents ask this same question..

“What do I do with all my kids’ artwork?”

There’s only so much room on the fridge, right?  But it’s so cute!  So what do you do with it?  

Here is my cute, practical, and frugal solution.

Kids Art Display with Dollar Store Clipboards

We already had the owl chalkboard decal (similar here) on this wall in our kitchen.  The wall has needed something else for years, but I was waiting for the perfect solution.  With this DIY project, I killed 2 bird with one stone.  I simply nailed some dollar store clipboards to the wall.  We now can rotate the kids’ artwork to change up the space as often as we want.  We can also update the chalkboard quote to fit the season.  

Mama’s tip: You might need to add  some double-sided tape to the bottoms of the clipboards so that they lay flat against the wall.

Any artwork that has been retired from the display, I hole punch and add to binders.  One day I’ll give the kids their many binders full of arts and crafts projects, whether they appreciate them or not. πŸ˜‰

Do you have any creative, budget-friendly solutions for displaying kids’ artwork?

  1. OMG!!! I literally have a closet full of kids artwork and it has been weighing on me to get them up and hung before they turn into teenagers! How have I never thought of this-what a perfect solution!!! THANK you!!!

    1. So glad this idea could help, Jill! If you do decide to do this in your house, I’d love to see your finished product! πŸ™‚

  2. I love the dollar store and this is really a great idea! I made something similar using corkboards and then attaching my girls first initial on each. We repainted our house and I need to put them back up. πŸ™‚

    1. I was just there the other day and the possibilities are endless! Stay tuned for more dollar store crafts! πŸ˜‰

  3. As of right now, I just use painter’s tape to stick stuff up directly on the wall, but it definitely looks messy. I love the simplicity of this project and the owl in the middle is adorable!

  4. How very clever!! This is super unique! I’ll have to try that as I don’t want my refrigerator to get too full of his lovely ‘art’ πŸ™‚
