Kids are natural collectors, so what better way to put their proclivity for keeping things to good use than by making a craft that highlights some of their favorite things? This way the items they love won't end up hidden in drawers. Whether your child is a fan of collecting sports memorabilia or sentimental keepsakes from family vacations, this simple DIY is just the thing to add to their bedroom.

How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

Choose an area in your child's room and set up a shelf or corner where they can hang artwork and put together exhibitions of special objects.

Step 2

Hang their favorite pictures and postcards on a whimsical adaptation of a clothesline; we used ribbon. Simply hang the ribbon and place clothespins holding their desired artwork on the ribbon. 

Step 3

Then show off small items of their choice in glass-fronted boxes. The content of the display can change along with their interests.

Step 4

Use a binder to organize souvenirs and other collectibles and place atop the desk. Arrange maps and brochures from family vacations in plastic page protectors.
