A Tour of our Playroom Art Center
Aug 292015
 

As you all know, I’m always encouraging my kids to get creative and do arts & crafts! I’ve posted many kid’s craft ideas here on the blog, including Watercolor Paint Project, these Summer Kids’ Crafts and these Snow-themed Kids’ Crafts. And so I thought I would share with you all how I organize my kid’s art supplies (and they have a lot of them) and also how I’ve created a little art corner for them in the playroom!

I’ve written before on the blog about some ways we have organized their artwork, like this DIY Art Display from the townhouse. And in this post, I shared some impressive kids’ art centers!

In today’s post, I’ll show your our Art Center in the new house. It’s where I house all their art supplies, papers, glues, glitters, etc. And it’s also where we display some of their coolest art masterpieces!

Organizing our Playroom Art Center

Let’s take a closer look at some of the details, shall we? Here I simply stuck three hooks into the wall, and then I used some metal pails (that I picked up for $1 from Target) to store various art supplies. I stuck on little labels from the dollar store to make the collection look a bit more unified. Starting from the left, the labels read Markers, Colored Pencils and Crayons. (You may notice some of the crayons in the Crayons pail are my DIY Rainbow Crayon Discs!)

Right beneath the pails, I have a simple magazine folder that I attached to the wall with a few picture hangers! It’s a simple way to keep some of their favorite coloring books, workbooks and papers within easy reach!

Here is a shelf that houses five more jars and containers (some empty mason jars, some small flower pots from Ikea, some metal pails, etc.) They all have labels to unify them. From left to right, they read “Color Wonder Markers” (self-explanatory), “Play Dough” (a set of colorful mini play dough favors), “Glitters & Glues” (sprinkle glitters, glitter glues, and glue sticks), “Paint Supplies” (paint brushes, some watercolor paints and basic acrylic paints), and “Embellishments” (pom poms, feathers, googly eyes, etc.)

It’s a simple method to display kids’ artwork! I just inserted two hooks into the wall on each end and tied a strip of twine between them. I placed a large sunflower clip over each hook to conceal the ugly hooks.

Then, I used my DIY Washi Tape Clothespins to hang their art papers right from the twine! Easy and pretty! (Please don’t mind the air conditioner trim in the picture! Keepin’ it real over here!)

We love our little art center. You can see in this picture below that they also have an easel that lives in that corner of the room, as well! And those letter-shaped blackboards on the wall… we found them from the clearance aisle at Hobby Lobby for only a few bucks each!!

      Thanks Jess! Keeping our art supplies organized requires a system! Or else it would just be all over the place! :)

  2. That’s genius! I love that they can express their creativity. That looks like so much fun!

      Thanks Megan! We get a lot of us out of that space, as the girls probably do arts & crafts at least once per day!

      Have a wonderful day, and thanks for your comment!

      Aww, thanks Tiffany! I always loved art as a kid, and I want to make sure I instill that same love into my girls!

      Thanks for your comment and have a fabulous weekend!

  4. Great ideas! I love the clothsline art display. Very versatile! Definitely things I can use in my own home.
