Clothes Line for Kids' Artwork

An arty, fun and thrifty way to display your child's drawings, which they can contribute to themselves!

Time to complete: 15 minutes.



  • wooden pegs (clothespins)
  • felt tip pens
  • string or cord
  • wall hooks


  1. Give your kids the felt tips and pegs, and get them to colour them in. Stripes, polka-dots, drawings, let them go crazy!
  2. Screw or stick two hooks into the wall and tie the string between them. This would look great in the kitchen or the living room.
  3. Peg drawings and special school work to the washing line. You can change them whenever you want to!

This is such a great idea! I collect postcards. I used wire with clothespins(painted) on it and use it for my postcards.
