The paper tide begins with a toddler's first crayoned scrawls, and grows to a school age high by primary school: children's artwork. Displaying a child's artistic creations brings bright affirmation to their creative efforts.

Be equally creative when displaying, sharing and storing art projects. Lightweight, inexpensive laundry lines - designed to take a traveler's drip - offer a great way to display the week's artistic triumphs. Mount these short lengths of laundry cord behind a desk, and use the clips to hang paintings and papers. Alternatively, use clear acrylic frames to display artworks. They make it easy to swap out projects on an ongoing basis.

Share the wealth with others in your child's life. A monthly mailing to Grandma not only celebrates family ties, but also gives her bragging rights at the bingo game or exercise class. Best of all, sharing children's artwork in this way helps introduce them to the delights of correspondence.
