Despite my efforts to intercept some of my daughter's school work, paintings and projects from school, she would often still find or create something to hang on the fridge. It was getting out of control. At first I suggested that if she wanted to hang something, first she had to remove something of her own. This only worked so much. And if she could find an empty magnet, she'd use it. I finally came up with this small bulletin board for the refrigerator.
I went to the Dollar Tree and bought the bulletin board border. Using a bit of tape, I made our very own display for artwork right on the fridge. (The picture seems to emphasize the fact that the top is not straight, but you get the idea!) It is the ONLY place on the fridge where we are allowed to hang artwork now. I also bought a set of eight magnets. Having two children (who create art) and eight magnets allows each child to have two pictures up at any time. When Little Sis begins creating, we will just make the bulletin board bigger.
This kitchen bulletin board is working perfectly for us to organize the children's artwork.
Pictured above you can see the sticker collage and bear made from hearts that Brother made. Big Sister made the rabbit from hearts and drew a butterfly. (You can see more about the heart crafts if you wish.)
How do you minimize cute craft clutter in your home?
