Solution for too much kids art!

My kids love to color pictures and create all kinds of art. The problem is I simply do not have enough room on the front of my fridge for it all!  If you're like me, you love everything your kids make and have a hard time tossing those precious creations.  But at the same time, you want to keep the clutter to a minimum. I created this "art line".  We fill it up and when there is no more room, we remove a few.  I let the girls choose ones they want to keep in a memory folder and they also choose ones to toss.

All you need is Scotch command adhesive hooks that are easily removable from your wall, some clothes pins, and some type of durable string.  I used some rustic looking hemp yarn.

Decide where you want to place the art.  Mine is upstairs in the hallway near the girls' rooms. Place the hooks on the wall at a reasonable distance following the package instructions.  Then tie a slip knot in each end of the yarn.  Slip the knots over the hooks and start displaying your kids' art!  For a bonus, you can use some pom poms to decorate the clothes pins and it's even more decorative!

I think it's time to bring out the crayons and let the girls put up some new art!
