Toddler Art Gallery

With a 2 year old son who is a prolific "colorer" and a fridge that is non-magnetic stainless, I had a dilemma on how to display my little artist's work. I purchased 2 document frames (8 1/2 x 11 inch) that work with my decor and hung them in the dining room as part of a wall collage. I can easily reach them to take them down and rotate my son's drawings. Since we mostly give him recycled office paper to color and draw on, it fits perfectly in the frame and I can store "historical" drawings right in the back behind the current one.

I also keep a stack of his colored on pages in a folder. When I need a quick thank you note for a gift he has been given, I fold one in half and in half again, making a little note card, and just write "Thank You" on the inside with one of his crayons. I keep a box of invitation envelopes from the office supply store handy and they are the perfect size. Sometimes we even add some extra coloring on the envelope. His grandparents and other relatives love this personal touch, and friends like checking out the art gallery when they come to visit.
