View Full Version : Displaying children's work

26-02-2013, 01:58 PM
I was just wondering what everyone does. I like to have the children's bits displayed on the wall, but I haven't got a play room for childminding we use our main front room. At the moment each month we do a new little topic and i just stick things onto the wall with blue tac. Only the wall has gone to look shabby and the pictures always seem to fall down. I have been looking into purchasing a notice/display board. I wondered what everyone else does. :idea:

I send it home every day with the children. No space for art displays despite having a play room and they prefer to give it to mums and dads which suits me just fine :thumbsup:

I took my display boards down over half term as it was too much effort to keep changing them. I've bought some nice Alex Clark farmyards prints to put up in their place. I prefer sending their artwork home now, because of the parents reactions..."Oh no, we'll have to clear yet more pace on the fridge!":clapping: Spot a weakness and exploit it, that's what I do.:laughing:

I don't have a lot of room and hubby won't have it up in the lounge, fair play as it's his home too. I do have a magnetic notice board above the table in the kitchen diner which can be seen by parents, can fit about 9 A4 pictures on it at a push and I have a conservatory so I stick some things on the windows/ doors and have one of those plastic pocket hangers, it also holds 9 A4 and can be doubled sided, it hangs nicely from one of my top window latches!
Think I got it from Baker Ross.

I take a partnership approach with parents, I do the activities with the children, they display them at home:) I am not a nursery, I don't want noticeboards all over my walls.

i do have a display board in my playroom, but i still send 99.9% of artwork home!

i use those A4 plastic display pockets too.

We have a piece of string like washing line along our dining room and mini pegs to display the childrens work The idea was that we could take it down regularly but like other piece around the house has been there since we put it up.

Yes I send mine home as well but I take a photo first in case I want to put it in the learning journal :thumbsup:

We do a proper wall display (under the breakfast bar) every 6 months on average. Everything else gets sent home. I have enough of my own children's 'artwork' around and haven't got anywhere to put everyone else's masterpieces! The parents do love receiving a daily scribble :laughing:

I display the childrens art work in the playroom and send their work home when we change the theme on a termly basis. I take pictures of the display before I take it all down. The children love seing their work displayed.

Ive just took a picture of one of the walls (needs to come down butI have beeb busy with my OU course)
