Jack loves to create, and I love to let him. I am getting better about keeping what is important, and throwing away the little shreds of napkin with a scribble, or the the two pieces of construction paper glued together...but it's hard. Each little work of art brings a smile to my face as I imagine his chubby little hands working with the crayons or mastering the glue stick...and Jack's creations were really starting to pile up on top on the fridge (let's not even talk about how much we had crammed onto the front of said fridge).
I had seen a picture of an interesting way to display photos with clothespins, and thought it might be a great solution for us to display a rotation of Jack's creations, without overtaking our entire kitchen. I had a roll of jute in my craft box, and liked the way that looked with the clothespins...nice and rustic.
I labeled some of our clothespins with the days of the week, and we keep the rest in a little tin that is actually left over from our wedding decorations!
We have had it up for about three weeks now, and it really is great! Not only does it keep the clutter down in our house (to an extent anyway!), but Jack also knows exactly where his newest creation will be, and runs to show it off when visitors stop by.
Do you have a way of displaying your little ones creations? I'd love to hear what works for you!
