I have little ones who love to paint – and when they do, they like to paint big! For little ones who are still gaining fine motor skills and learning about colors, large format painting on large sheets of butcher paper are an ideal way to let them explore with paints.

We do end up having lots of these rather large paintings around, which I definitely want to display for them to take pride in their “masterpieces.”

Searching for a fix at Ikea, I found a drying rack and thought it’d be a cool way to hang lots of your child’s larger scale paintings so they can be visually displayed. You could use any drying rack (the one from Ikea is relatively inexpensive at less than $10).

The kids love looking at their art “drying” on the rack and it makes a colorful and dazzling display.
