I have found that displaying my children’s artwork is something they really love! They are so pleased to see that I love their masterpiece enough to find a prominent place for it. Their artwork gets clipped or taped to our refrigerator, bedroom walls, the side of Luke’s make-shift dresser, even the hallway occasionally dorns the color of fall leaves, butterflies, and rainbows!
To make room for new masterpieces, I have kept some special pieces (Luke’s coloring of our family, notes Logan has scribbled and called “Prayer Requests,” and Lindsay’s finally-mastered princess picture.) Sometimes I have folded and mailed pieces to the grandparents so they, too, can enjoy the creativity of their grandchildren.
Three-year-old Luke especially lights up when he sees something of his on display. He will proudly say, “I made that!” My children feel special when I place their artwork around the house, and that’s exactly what I want them to feel. So go ahead, show off that artwork!
